Next Steps

Editing the /etc/sudoers file to allow me to run high-level commands without being root all the time.

That was easy, I just followed the directions listed.

Re-install the fvwm window manager.

That wasn't easy. Even the "unstable" release of fvwm wanted a library with an older version than what Fedora provided. So I downloaded the fvwm2.4.19 source as a tarball, unpacked it in /home/local/src, and (running as local) did:

$ ./configure --prefix=/home/local
$ make install

which puts the executable in /home/local/bin, then I edited the .xsession file so that it starts /home/local/bin/fvwm2. Simple, huh?
