Bug Fix Advisory less bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1468-1
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 less package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The less package contains a text file browser that is similar to the more
browser, but with more features ("less is more"). The less text file browser
allows users to move backwards in the file as well as forwards. Because the less
utility does not need to read the entire input file before it starts, it starts
up faster than text editors.

* Prior to this update, a debuginfo file for a binary was missing from the
less-debuginfo package. As a result, the crash analysis via the Automatic
Bug-Reporting Tool (ABRT) did not work as expected and debugging via GNU
Debugger (GDB) could fail. This update modifies the spec file so that the crash
analysis via ABRT and debugging via GDB work as expected. (BZ#734827)


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant
