I am getting the rpm from the page http://hobbitmon.sourceforge.net/

Is this not the best starting place for a new hobbit user?

You need openldap-devel and rrdtool-devel, but in older versions not in
the F12 repos.  Much as I favor rpm-based software installation on
rpm-based distros, Josh Luthman's earlier advice to compile from source is
going to be your easiest path.  If you do choose to hunt down and install
the correct rpm versions of the dependencies, you'll need to put exclude=
lines for them in your yum.conf to avoid yum errors.

390?  That looks odd.
