Bug Fix Advisory up2date bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2005:169-19
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2005-04-01
Last updated on: 2005-04-01
Affected Products: Red Hat Desktop (v. 4)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 4)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (v. 4)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS (v. 4)

Details

Updated up2date packages that fix a libgnat bug are now available for
64-bit platforms.

The up2date packages contain the Red Hat Update Agent, that automatically
queries Red Hat Network servers to determine which packages need to be
updated on your machine.

On 64-bit systems, the list of packages needing an upgrade may be
incorrect, causing the system to attempt to update packages that are
already at the latest revision. This prevents the system from updating. In
particular, systems with the libgnat package installed report error
messages indicating that an update failed because the gcc package was
already updated.

Users of the up2date packages are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which resolves this issue.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

up2date

following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:
