Bug Fix Advisory mktemp bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1443-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-02-20
Last updated on: 2012-02-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated mktemp package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The mktemp utility takes a given file name template and overwrites a portion of
it to create a unique file name. This allows shell scripts and other programs to
safely create and use files in the /tmp directory.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the mktemp-debuginfo package contained no debugging
information. With this update, the mktemp-debuginfo package now contains
debugging information, as expected. (BZ#500610)

All users of mktemp should upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this
bug.
