I apologize, but I don't understand quite what you're saying, here. I'm still pretty new to Linux.

When you performed your last update yum gave the error message " /sbin/ldconfig: /usr/X11R6/lib/libXxf86dga.so.1 is not a symbolic link". The `ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/libXxf86dga.so.1` output from your system shows that /usr/X11R6/lib/libXxf86dga.so.1 exists, is a valid symbolic link and points to file libXxf86dga.so.1.0. Craig's response was that the output looks OK. Craig, then, provided examples of the properties that are associated with that file on his system. Run the commands that Craig used and see if you get similar results.

The only item left from your yum update was the error for Xdosemu. It
is possible that the version that you got is not compatible with FC3
or the version of X (Xorg) that is installed.  You'll have to verify
that the package you updated is compatible.

Ok - here are my responses to Craig's suggested commands:

ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/libXxf86dga.so.1
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 21446 Apr  1 16:43 /usr/X11R6/lib/libXxf86dga.so.1

rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/X11R6/lib/libXxf86dga.so.1

ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/libXxf86dga.so.1.0
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 19424 Mar 24 18:04 /usr/X11R6/lib/libXxf86dga.so.1.0

As regards the dosemu program, it IS compatible with the latest FC3 and xorg libs - Why do I know? Because it's working on my home machine with the latest libs, and I've been getting some help from someone on the dosemu list who also has it working with the same configuration as mine.

This morning, I just ran some updates, and I continue to get errors:

I just don't understand enough about these symbolic links and their relationship to the underlying libraries...
