do you remember the version you installed from source?

If you installed a stable version on FC2 previously then the configs
should work on this setup as well. When you installed from source did
you change the install path (ie: ./configure --prefix=/usr)? If not and
the user has used absolute paths in their configs then an RPM installing
to /usr and not /usr/local won't put things where their configs/scripts
etc. expect them to be. How are the perms in the user's ~/.fvwm ??

The fvwm-user list is a helpful place and very low traffic, perhaps
answers from there could help you or the user figure things out if
you're really stuck.
