The rpm doesn't always add the nice menu icons, and things. You would need to add those manually, but you should be able to run your openswan from the CLI by typing $openswan. Try that, and for getting it into the menus, I'm sure there is howto on google. Maybe, even one around these forums, just do some digging you'll get it.

Thanks for the advice, but it didn't work for some just says "command not found"...and when I try installing it again, it tells me that package is already installed.

To see all files you installed when installing your rpm, try: "rpm -q --filesbypkg openswan"
You will probably see the program you are looking for in the output.
