after some bad experience with rpm, i hav now settled on applying only the
red hat security updates. I try not to do any feature upgrades on any
working servers as a matter of policy now! If i need new features, then i
normally take a fresh box, install everything and then transfer apps one at
a time. This way it is very easy to undo any step (the only problem being
that u need an extra comp and the time to do the transfer, but when u hav
critical servers that can't go down much, then u need to do this!)
