Your new installation probably has a different definition for your default face than your old one.

Try using M-x customize to set the value of your Default face (under Faces, Basic Faces) to light yellow on dark green, and save it for future sessions. This will put something like

 '(default ((t (:foreground "light yellow" :background "dark green")))))

in your .emacs file.

Recently, I installed RedHat Linux 7.2 without any major problems, and I
got emacs version 20.7-41 which worked fine.  However, when I later
installed all the rpms related to bug fixes and updates something has
happened to the visual appearance of my emacs.

Previously there was a dark green background color and light yellow
characters. After the updates, the background is the same (dark green)
but all characters (except those in the status line at the bottom) are
displayed in black on white background.

As far as I can see, I did not make any update of emacs after the 7.2
installation, so this problem may be related to other programs or
packages which emacs interacts with.  Since there where ~100 packages
updated, I have no idea where to look.

The last changes in .emacs and .Xdefaults are before emacs worked fine.

Any help/suggestions on how to remove this annoying effect is highly
