Bug Fix Advisory grep bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0352-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-03-05
Last updated on: 2012-06-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

An updated grep package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The grep utility searches through textual input for lines which contain a match
to a specified pattern and then prints the matching lines. GNU grep utilities
include grep, egrep and fgrep.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the grep utility was not able to handle the EPIPE error. If a
SIGPIPE signal was blocked by the shell, grep kept continuously printing error
messages. An upstream patch has been applied to address this problem, so that
grep exits on the first EPIPE error and prints only one error message.
(BZ#741452)

All users of grep are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.


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 use the Red
Hat Network to apply this update are available at
