Is "blacklist ipv6" in /etc/modprobe.conf equivalent to "touch /etc/modprobe.d/disable-ipv6" or should the FAQ be updated?[/quote]
"blacklist ipv6" is close to "alias net-pf-10 off" (the blacklist command disables all builtin aliases in the specified module, and the only builtin alias in the ipv6 module is currently net-pf-10). This command seems to be the preferred way to disable automatic loading of a particular module triggered through builtin aliases.

Omitting "blacklist ipv6" and adding only "options ipv6 disable=1" will still disable the IPv6 protocol, but it is likely that the ipv6 module will be loaded (using about 400 KB of memory) due to programs probing for IPv6 support.

Just to clarify my original post....
I did not lose all audio...just flash plugin audio

After following links from the how-to's to the adobe site. I fixed this.

Architecture is 64 bit!

Pretty simple fix:
yum remove flash-plugin
yum install flash-plugin

For whatever it is worth......

npviewer is part of nspluginwrapper which was updated during my 5.4->5.5 yum update.

So I was originally focusing on nsplugginwrapper as the culprit..

Will be interesting to see if these errors no longer occur

I'm slightly surprised to find that kvm is in extras; I'd have expected it to be part of the 'standard' distro, as since 5.4 it's supposed to be a fully supported part of CentOS.

Apart from playing with kvm some time ago I don't use it, so for me it's not a problem. Still think it should not cause a depsolving issue, though.[/quote]

KVM does not exist in base as of 5.5 @ 32bit. 64bit works fine. However I would suggest not updating any CentOS 5.4 virtualhosts on 32bit kernels. I'm hoping this changes...

Please don't quote entire messages. Trim as required for context.

AFAIK there are only two ways to get kvm i386 back in the distro - upstream brings it back, or CentOS creates a centosplus package. You might consider filing a RFE (request for enhancement) [url=http://bugs.centos.org/main_page.php]bug report[/url].

I'm still getting the funky behavior with the desktop launcher icons.

Ah, found these fixes:
update-mime-database /usr/share/mime
update-desktop-database /usr/share/applications

The second one seemed to fix it.

Mine has been rough. The install hosed up my X windows configuration.
I was unable to login using gdm nor did my GNOME desktop load.
I had to install KDE and use kdm.

I have gotten GNOME reinstalled and I am able to log into GNOME (still using kdm) and I am currently trying to determine why the gnome-settings-daemon won't start. More specifically why I am missing the libgnome-window-settings.so.1 shared library:

[code] $ /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon
/usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon: error while loading shared libraries: libgnome-window-settings.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory[/code]

The GNOME packages should be install, specifically gnome-session and libgnome. So I would think the missing library should be installed.

Anyone have a clue what the issue might be or a solution/workaround.

Thanks , checked and I have GNOME Control Center installed.

# yum list installed | grep control-center
control-center.i386 1:2.16.0-16.el5 installed
control-center.x86_64 1:2.16.0-16.el5 installed


Another question, is that I have noticed that both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions are installed.
I have a 64-bit install of CentOS and so would expect only to see the 64-bit versions of the applications unless I had specifically installed 32-bit or that was the only version available, but I wouldn't expect to see both.
