The IDE didn't found your FPC sources (RPM fpcsrc). Check
Environment->Environment Options->FPC Source Directory.

It seems your FPC is not the one, that was used to compile the lazarus RPM.
Download the lazarus src RPM and rebuild it:
rpm --rebuild lazarus-0.9.0.xxx.src.rpm
Then uninstall the old lazarus and install the new.

Looks ok.

No. It's already in the path.
