Whenever possible, you should always install the RPM built and provided
by your distro vendor over one you find using rpmfind.net, this will
guarantee that it will work properly with your distro. You can't just
install any OpenMotif package from rpmfind. You must make sure its for
your distro - right down to the exact version.

The best way to make sure you are using the right RPM is to use your
distro's package management system. For Red Hat-based systems, yum is
preferred command for this these days.

I suggest you read the documentation for your distro and learn how to
use it's package management system. Again, this is something that will
save you lots of time and effort in the future.
