Bug Fix Advisory chkconfig bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2006:0286-5
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2006-04-19
Last updated on: 2006-08-09
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 chkconfig packages are available that fix a bug whereby services
could be accidentally enabled.

Chkconfig is a basic system utility. It updates and queries runlevel
information for system services. Chkconfig manipulates the numerous
symbolic links in /etc/rc.d, to relieve system administrators of some of
the drudgery of manually editing the symbolic links.

Previously, when configuring a service with chkconfig, any dependent LSB
services were reset to their default enabled or disabled state regardless
of the LSB service's current state.

Users of chkconfig with LSB services should upgrade to these updated
packages, which resolve this issue.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
