European driving in California here, some guy passed us on the right side on route 50 between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe (two lanes each way) and was very intently showing us this sign. What does it mean? What could we have done wrong?

As a Californian, I disagree with the previous answer. I think two fingers is is pretty clearly a friendly "hello" wave (it might be accompanied by the word "peace"). In this case, he was likely either saying:
"Yo! Sorry I'm passing you on the right!"
or, if he's being passive-aggressive:
"I'm not happy that I have to pass you on the right, but I'll make a friendly-looking wave anyways so that I don't seem too mean... but, hopefully you take the hint and move over, ~expletive~!
