As far as I saw it, it is for the old Xfree86 and not for the new XORG. There seem to be no fedora packages offered. Can you use an alternative? gkrellm is very nice.

If gkrellm is fine with you :

Code:
yum install gkrellm

Sounds like it is looking for the X11 development package.

"yum install xorg-x11-devel" i

Just to let everyone know installing the xorg-x11-devel package works like a charm.
