I've just upgraded my machine from FC4 to FC6, and LaTeX seems to run
fine.  What's the output of "which tex", "which latex", etc.?  That
would help to find out whether you're running Fedora's stock programs
(as I am) or locally-compiled versions that might have been broken by
library upgrades etc.
