Hi Guys!

Thanks to the whole Centos team for all their hard work. You have no IDEA
how much I appreciate it!

I ran "yum upgrade" last night, rebooted this morning and encountered
a couple of small problems:
1. "shutdown -h now" goes all the way down but does not power down the
box like it always has before. Same when shutting down via the GUI shutdown
dialog. I can offer up machine details should anyone want them.
2. Trying to recompile the official Cisco VPN client after the reboot and
it fails with this info:

# make

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-92.1.1.el5-i686'

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-92.1.1.el5-i686'

this ".libdriver.so.cmd" looks like something that should be created on the fly.

I've built this same version for several previous Centos kernels, so this appears
to be a new phenomenon.

Clues would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
