yum, mysql, bind, postfix, rescue mode, etc. Solutns. (Ans)

Problem: yum isn't upgraded
Solution: Manually install FC1 yum

Problem: mysqld's init script is slightly broken when the root account has a password(Which isn't the default, but everyone should do)
Solution: Makes add -u UNKNOWN_USER to lines 42 and 48 after the word ping. Examples
if [ -n "`/usr/bin/mysqladmin ping -u UNKNOWN_USER 2> /dev/null`" ]; then
if !([ -n "`/usr/bin/mysqladmin ping -u UNKNOWN_USER 2> /dev/null`" ]); then

Problem: Upgrade of bind-chroot/bind replaces chroot version of /etc/sysconfig/named
Solution: mv /etc/sysconfig/named.rpmsave /etc/sysconfig/named

Problem: Postfix with chroot broken after upgrade
cd /usr/lib ; cp -a `ls /var/spool/postfix/usr/lib/*` /var/spool/postfix/usr/lib
ln /etc/passwd /var/spool/postfix/etc or cp -a /etc/passwd /var/spool/postfix/etc
ln /etc/services /var/spool/postfix/etc/services or cp -a /etc/services /var/spool/postfix/etc
Yell at Red Hat for dropping support for chroot in Postfix while adding it to bind

Problem: Replaced /etc/services
Solution: mv /etc/services /etc/services.rpmnew ; mv /etc/services.rpmsave /etc/services

Problem: RH9 --> FC1 upgrade without physical access
Solution: Use yum and likely have fewer problems that if you upgraded by cd

Problem: Cyrus imapd doesn't work properly.
Solution : Recompile

Problem: After upgrade doxygen seg faults in some cases
Solution: Downgrade to RH9 version while waiting for an update

Problem: Parts of rescue mode fail
Solution: Use "linux ide=nodma" at boot: prompt
