Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2006-04-19
Last updated on: 2006-08-09

Details

Updated cpio packages that address various bugs are now available.

GNU cpio copies files into or out of a cpio or tar archive.

This erratum addresses the following bugs:
- Cpio writes bad crcs in the cpio header on 64-bit machines.
- When cpio creates an ustar archive, the file modification times stored
in the archive are incorrect.
- If a file grew n bytes in copy-pass mode, these n bytes got prepended
to the contents of all subsequent files.

All users of cpio are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contains backported fixes for these issues.


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:

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