Enhancement Advisory febootstrap enhancement update

Advisory: RHEA-2011:0587-1
Type: Product Enhancement Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-05-19
Last updated on: 2011-05-19
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

Updated febootstrap packages that add two enhancements are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

febootstrap is used to create a basic Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Fedora
filesystem, and builds initramfs (initrd.img) or filesystem images.

This update adds the following enhancements:

* The febootstrap packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.11, which
provides a number of bug fixes and one enhancement over the previous version.
(BZ#628849)

* This update provides the subpackage febootstrap-supermin-helper for the
runtime helper program. Now, libguestfs runtime depends only on
febootstrap-supermin-helper, which reduces the dependencies. (BZ#669839)

All febootstrap users are advised upgrade to these updated packages, which add
these enhancements.
