Advisory: RHBA-2012:0354-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-03-06
Last updated on: 2012-06-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

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

This package contains scripts that generate a common metadata repository from a
directory of RPM packages.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the shebang line of the modifyrepo.py script contained
"#!/usr/bin/env python", so the system path was used to locate the Python
executable. When another version of Python was installed on the system, and
"/usr/local/python" was specified in the PATH environment variable, scripts did
not work due to Python compatibility problems. With this update, the shebang
line is modified to "#!/usr/bin/python", so that the system version of Python is
always used. (BZ#623105)

All users of createrepo 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
