Bug Fix Advisory yum bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1117-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

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

Yum is a command-line utility that allows the user to check for updates and
automatically download and install updated RPM packages. Yum automatically
obtains and downloads dependencies, prompting the user for permission as
necessary.

This update fixes the following bug:

* After having installed a 64-bit package and running the "yum localupdate"
command with the same package for both 64-bit and 32-bit architectures, yum
installed the 32-bit package if the file list contained the current package
versions. With this update, yum now checks for the matching package name and
architecture in this scenario; if either the name or architecture does not
match, yum does not perform any action. (BZ#749337)

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