If the rpm installer has a problem it will let you know. Try typing "gvim" (without the quotes) at the command promt and see what happens.

"it checks for dependencies then cuts out"

Were the dependencies satisfied?

if you have vim already installed, all you need is the package vim-X11 in order to run gvim.

http://rawhide.redhat.com/pub/redhat....1-29.i386.rpm

edit: i don't remember if the vim package relies on vim-common, but i do believe that vim-X11 does. anyway, try to install the rpm and take note of any dependancies.

yeah, gvim is installed with vim i believe, but the x11 libraries that are needed to run it aren't installed by default unless you did a custom install and chose it (at least it didn't for me). all's i remember is trying to run it before installing vim-X11 and getting a bunch of errors.
