If no one can offer a fix for the x problems, that will happen tomorrow.  It 
was just that I hated to lose all the customizations I had done to make the 
network work, things like that, and it almost did succeed in screwing the 
pooch, it overwrote my /etc/hosts file, and left me with a zero length 
resolv.conf.  It did, amazingly, leave my hard coded ipv4 address alone.
And one thing I can complement rawhide on, tty* is almost running at the 
displays native resolution instead of the 80x24 screen F8 had. 

????? I just typed yum check-update, 2 hours after doing the preupgrade, and 
it is going to install one package and update another 119.  I repeat, WTF?

Beer-thirty and I obviously am at least 3 behind here.
