Yup.  The error is actually from the 3.10.2 bytecode interpreter
(/usr/bin/ocamlrun).  Our compiler binaries are bytecode (although
they _generate_ machine code), and they need a matching bytecode
interpreter to run them.

  $ head -1 /usr/bin/i686-pc-mingw32-ocamlopt 

Anyway, the original poster is way outside the envelope of what we
could possibly support, so please install a Fedora virtual machine.

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
