I ran "yum install xorg-x11-Xdmx" but it says "No Match for argument: xorg-x11-Xdmx.. nothing to do". It's pretty weird to me. I didn't install Xdmx before. Can anybody help me? Thanks.

I haven't installed that package before but from the error message, I would suspect that the package can't be found in any of the yum repos. So search for it on rpmfind.net such as:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=xorg-x11-Xdmx
If you are up for it, grab the SRC rpm and rebuild for your machine/distro.

Thanks! Unfortunately there only have Xdmx for xorg-x11 6.9. I need to find one for 7.0 :-) Is there any other source I can try?

you want xorg-x11-server-Xdmx ... that's the fancy new modularness for you! i've got a suspicion that just 'yum install xdmx' might work too.
