once you understand that the ones behind archlinux development are human beings and that as human beings they can make mistakes makes you be prepared for unexpected results after updates, thats the price you have to pay for having a bleeding edge distribution.
as simple as this, with a bleeding edge distribution you have to deal with possible packaging errors but with "stable" distributions you have to deal with outdated software.
what I do is: I dont update archlinux on my laptop unless I have some free time, and also I dont update my server unless I had updated my laptop and checked that everything is working fine.

I read it while it was still on top, don't worry. But as I said things went wrong even after next Syu... Everything works fine now. So that's OK.
Glad to hear it. I got 5.3 when it first went into testing and about pulled my hair out tightening the php.ini configuration to play nice with 5.3. The changes really show where you had been loose in your config before 5.3 and gotten away with it. Now 5.3 requires a bit of clean up with your config, but then works just fine.
Usually I don't have too much time for pulling my hear or for anything else that's why I like when things just works. Even if I need to fix things it's OK but sometimes I can't fix them just like that for few minutes. I read the news, I went to #archlinux, I sent a message here in the list but still nothing. Then I search the forum and tried different things until once it start working again. Few days I didn't touch anything at all. Really didn't have time. I still can't try any other OS here because I spent too much time setting this Arch up and configuring. It's my baby :)) It looks and works beautiful. Except after Syu; but not always. Most of the time things just work... Can't just say goodbye to Arch so easily. But if once it will happen that I really can't fix something, that will be the moment... I guess. Anyway, I'll try to buy another PC and install something else...
