OK, I just did a quick and dirty setup to get this sent off to you and
the list, by setting up Evolution. Here are the error messages that I
got when I did a "yum update":

I am also getting quite a number of errors at boot, after doing the "yum
update" command, but the system seems to still be running OK. I could
send those as well, but I don't know which log files I need to copy or
whether I can send them as attachments.
