Bug Fix Advisory glibc bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2006:0453-8
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2006-07-20
Last updated on: 2006-07-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Desktop (v. 3)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 3)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (v. 3)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS (v. 3)

Details

Updated glibc packages that address several bugs are now available.

The GNU libc packages (known as glibc) contain the standard C libraries
used by applications.

This erratum applies the following fixes in the GNU C Library:

- added a trigger script in glibc-common that automatically updates
/etc/localtime on tzdata updates
- fixed: nscd crashed when killed with SIGHUP signal (for example, through
service nscd reload)
- nscd only caches hosts requests as queried by the user, and does
not include CNAMEs and reverse mappings.
- added auto-propagate option to nscd.conf; when set to no, nscd will not
cache reverse mappings for password and group databases
- added various NIS+ fixes

All users of glibc should upgrade to these updated packages, which apply
these fixes.
