Cluster Suite.

apply these fixes.


Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
