Bug Fix Advisory findutils bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2006:0295-2
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

An updated findutils package that fixes a documentation error is now available.

The findutils packages contains programs for locating files. The find
utility searches for files matching a certain set of criteria (such as a
filename pattern). The xargs utility builds and executes command lines
from standard input arguments (usually file names generated by the find
command).

The find(1) man page contained a description of suffixes "M" and "G" for
the argument of the "-size" operator. These suffixes are not supported in
the version of find(1) shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

Users should upgrade to this updated package, which removes the errorneous
documentation and resolves 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,

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