Bug Fix Advisory system-switch-mail bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1489-1
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

Updated system-switch-mail packages that fix one bug are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The system-switch-mail utility is the Mail Transport Agent Switcher. It enables
users to easily switch between various mail transport agents.

These updated system-switch-mail packages fix the following bug:

* Prior to this update system-switch-mail contained the shebang line,
"#!/usr/bin/env python". This made it difficult to install alternative versions
of Python on the system. With this update the shebang lines in Python
executables have been changed to, "#!/usr/bin/python", to ensure the Python
interpreter installed on the system is used. (BZ#521904)

All users of system-switch-mail are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which resolve 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 the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
