sorry this is a side track how did you update your system via yum, i tried
it in virtuozzo and it would not install basic things like GCC with out
conflicting with other packages, the rpm package itself inside virtuozo is
not the normal version and many things depend a new standard version of rpm.
If this is too off topic please send me your experience to
