I am now applying updates via the puplet applet and seeing if the
corruption issue will cease. As past practices, I use yum from a root
shell mostly. Everything seems to install fine when using the puplet to
launch pup. I did have a problem with control-center not installing
because of a scriptlet error. This is with current development which is
pretty stable and with few conflicting packages at present.
Please inform of what the automatic updates do for you.

I ran this and ended up with the below output with no out of the
ordinaty output (Except the files listed below. Do I read these files
after running the script or expect output if something is incorrect?
Then I get back to the shell prompt. (as root)
