I installed the i386 RPM with a couple of error messages:

Package seahorse-2.20.3-3.i386.rpm is not signed (I accepted that and continued)

Installed successfully with this warning (which I see frequently, when
using YUM to install/update packages):

/sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib/libjspTru64Alpha.so is not an ELF file - it
has the wrong magic bytes at the start.

Launched seahorse from shell and I see these error messages, so I
think I need to start the dns-sd service. I will poke around and see
what Seahorse is like. Thank you again!
