Ralph: I remembered something about a difference, between "yum upgrade"
and "yum update", from the release of CentOS 5.2.  I hadn't fiddled
with the configuration of /etc/yum.conf and did not read the Release
Notes, before I upgraded from 5.1 to 5.2.  I used "yum update" and I
was OK.   This was a gentle reminder to myself to  read the Release
Notes, which is always an outstanding idea and something I didn't do
when 5.2 came out. Last night, on the list, I picked up about updating
glibc first. In the CentOS 5 General Support Forum, in Akemi's thread,
"When will CentOS 5.3 be out"; 59,375 views at this time. I will wait
a few days, before I upgrade.  Lanny
