I'd expect so. The older (1.x) FVWMs are so old that saying "fvwm2" is pretty
redundant these days.

"yum install fvwm\*" worked for me and found only "fvwm", not "fvwm2".
(I actually run one compiled from source, but for the sake of checking
things out for you...)

"rpm -ql fvwm" says /usr/bin/fvwm and /usr/bin/fvwm2 to me. So just run
"fvwm" and be happy.

Shrug. Maybe they tidied up?
