I just finished updating my Desktop, from CentOS 5.2 to 5.3 (32 bit).
There were a lot of error messages (from sbin/ldconfig ?) about 2
files, in usr/lib/lib ending in .so "is not an ELF file - It has the
wrong magic bytes at the start."  There were also a lot of messages I
believe have to do with SELinux.  I'd read the Release Notes and
thought I was OK, since this box is dual boot with M$ Windows XP,
thinking I had the latest and greatest way to access the NTFS
partition. However, when I rebooted the box, I saw warning messages:
"modprobe fuse as root" and here is the result of that:
[root at dell2400 ~]# modprobe fuse
[root at dell2400 ~]# exit
[lanny at dell2400 ~]$
and another message "ntfs-3g-mount fuse device is missing"
As expected, after viewing the above messages; I can't see what's on
the NTFS partition. I will read the Release Notes, again, in the
morning.  This box has GNOME and KDE on it and I was getting messages
from PUP that 185 packages were available. The update, after updating
glibc, was 268 packages.  A big thank you, to everyone who spent so
much of their valuable and very limited time working on this update!
