I'm pretty similar to you, being a RPM only person.  The way I got 
around the SegFault is by removing some of the plugins (which is fine 
for me, LiveTV and Recorded Shows are the important for our household 
- I'll try again once 0.19 is released)

I'm assuming you followed Jarods' guide like I did, so you could try 
the following to get mythfrontend to launch:

yum remove mythdvd

then try launching mythfrontend.  You'll probably get a SegFault with 
MythMusic at that point, so remove mythmusic, and repeat.  You'll 
probably need to remove MythDVD, MythMusic, MythGallery and MythPhone.
