After the upgrade and a post upgrade run of yum...
Things that were running that still work fine:
- Obviously YUM still works.
- Both NICs came up fine. (One static, one dhcp.)
- iptables firewall with masq and port forwarding came up fine (I use a
bash script for my firewall so I make no claims about any of the GUI
- Samba shares from server to clients still working.
- Samba shares from XP box that are mounted in fstab still working.
- ssh works.
- no new services were started.
- squid works fine.
- mysql server still works.

(This may be due to code incompatibilities with PHP 5 and nothing at all
to do with the upgrade itself.)
- vim no longer displays syntax highlights. Should be a simple fix, but
annoying. (Confirmed on second system)
- dovecot/imap/.pem ssh error at boot, pop3/imap not working. Looks like

on second system... most likely an issue with the specific box)
- xdmcp not working. Haven't had time to look into this.
- console display issue... anytime after X is initialized the text console
screen goes black with a green border. (Second system that has a different
video card doesn't have the same issue. The system in question is running
a Matrox Mill G400... that may well be in questionable shape (could be a
Other than that, both systems are humming along. The upgrade to FC4 seems
perfectly stable to me. Anyone else having good luck/bad luck?
