Thread is marked as being [SOLVED] and half a solution is present.

@OP: Can you provide some more details so that others can also benefit from it?

Taken off the zero-reply list.

http://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Vicious

you don't need the rpm: assuming you have awesome already installed
Code:
mkdir -p ~/.config/awesome
cp /etc/xdg/awesome/rc.lua ~/.config/awesome/
cd ~/.config/awesome
git clone http://git.sysphere.org/vicious
and then add
Code:
vicious = require("vicious")
on top of your ~/.config/awesome/rc.lua

see the link above for example widgets.

My awesome crashed without the libaries vicious since this was compiled from source. Never the less everything is running normal now.
