Bug Fix Advisory gamin bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1537-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-02-20
Last updated on: 2012-02-20
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated gamin packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

Gamin is an implementation of a subset of the File Alteration Monitor (FAM). It
is both API and ABI compatible with the file alteration monitoring mechanism,
but does not depend on a system-wide daemon.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Due to an assertion check, the Gamin server terminated unexpectedly after a
certain amount of time. With this update, the assertion has been silenced so
that the Gamin server now works as expected. (BZ#503085)

All users are advised to upgrade to these updated gamin packages, which fix this
bug.


Solution

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