Firstly, I would wonder about the wisdom of using Fedora 12 for deployment of 
a monitoring system. If a production environment, you would probably be better 
off using CentOS or RHEL. If this is a "play" system, then you could install 
from source ....

A number of distributions ship Xymon packages. For example, I maintain Xymon 
and devmon in Mandriva. The Mandriva packages rebuild adequately on 
CentOS/RHEL, and should probably work on Fedora as well (if you load the 
compatibility macros).

A repo for CentOS5 / RHEL 5 is available here:

SRPMS are here:

(or on any Mandriva mirror, and in Mandriva svn).
