Sure!  I hear you, I just did not want to post what you are posting now :(

I have to revert back to fc12 kernel to see a working screen :(, even at that, kde is not working correctly I click on konqueror nothing happens, I click on firefox nothing happens.  Sometimes I have to login as root to even get a screen :(.  It takes a bit of time to get things straightened out :)

That is a typo :(

the proper name is hmaccalc :) Thanks Clyde and others for pointing out! 

# yum install hmaccalc
should do the trick.
