Description of problem:
When using the switchdesk gui to select TWM, switchdesk asks for it to be installed. Did a 'yum list xorg-x11-twm' and this shows xorg-x11-twm.ppc to be installed, 1:1.0.0-1.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run switchdesk twm or switchdesk and use GUI to select TWM
2.Click OK

Actual Results:  Says that twm needs to be installed

Expected Results:  Switchdesk should have made twm default Window Manager
