One more suggestion: If up2date installed something that broke your
configuration then you might want to go looking for any files under /etc
with a .rpmnew or a .rpmsave extension. When rpm installs a new config
file for a package and it detects an existing config file that has been
modified locally it will respect the local edit of the config file and
install the new version of the file with a .rpmnew extension preserving
the local edit. If rpm thinks it needs to overwrite a file it will copy
the file with a .rpmsave extension. Looking for these files and
comparing them may provide a clue as to what changed and induced the new
behavior. The existence of either a .rpmnew or a .rpmsave could
represent delta in system configuration that needs closer examination.
