Have you picked _one_ of rsyslog|ntsyslog and `rpm -e theOtherOne`?
several daemons did not seem to work right at all until we did.

and as for the ifd handlers for pcsc, you only want to have ccid and the one 
that someone put as a dependency of pcscd.  cyberjack seems to hyjack the ifd 
connections until pcscd has no chance of working.

Pick custom and add only those things I know I need, and I Know don't conflict 
with other things in the base system. (at least for me.)

[basically custom and add everything in the group with the compilers]

an `rpm -verify` on the package system-config-services comes in and any it 
depends on may be in order.
