nm_applet runs in the Notification Area. Did you lose your Notification Area?

I have 5 different applets running in mine, including Bluetooth Manager, Power Manager, NetworkManager Applet, Weather Report, and Volumne Applet. I'd notice if all 5 disappeared from my panel....

I have a friend who is now offline because of this update. I'm trying to
help him roll back the change. No rsync backup in this case...


/var/log/yum.log will record what packages were installed during the last update.

You will have to, painstakingly, locate and download the previous version of each package, and manually install them using rpm -U --oldpackage
