Details

Updated strace packages that fix one bug are now available.

The strace program intercepts and records the system calls that are made
and the signals that are received by processes.

The following issue has been addressed:

* when a stopped process being examined by strace is killed, strace now
reports the event correctly. The prime example is a SIGKILL being sent to a
traced process.

Users of strace should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolves
this bug.


Solution

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