[CentOS] My 4.4 upgrades

My update method on two critical systems has been to use yumex.

I select all, unselect major apps that I recognize (bind, openssh, etc), 
update and reboot.

The yumex to get those apps and another reboot (most likely not needed).

I have updated my notebook.  The only detected problems are: madwifi 
drivers and lost Thunderbird icons in drawers (just had to go through 
the properties and reselect the icon).  Too soon to tell about anything 
deeper....

One server so far.  This is a new box that I built only a couple weeks 
ago.  Update went fine.  I am now taring up the system as a checkpoint 
before proceeding.

Two Trixboxes.  I am having that classic Trixbox problem with Centos and 
Zaptel, so I have to reread the docs, as yum update fails with 
unresolved dependencies.

So after some fear and doubt, I have made the leap!
