# yum install libXScrnSaver

BTW, the gui was improved in the new version! Now it requires new (and less) libraries. (I'm using ds9 from F15 repository in my F19)

Good luck!

check the output of

yum provides */

Probably you are missing the 32bit or the 64bit version of the library

Thanks for your help, Jann5s. However, all 32 and 64 bit files reported as installed
