Bug Fix Advisory strace bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0453-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-06-04
Last updated on: 2010-06-04
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated strace package that fixes a bug is now available.

The strace program intercepts and records the system calls called and received
by a running process. It can print a record of each system call, its arguments
and its return value.

This update also fixes the following bug:

* when detaching from a process, a misinterpreted status caused strace to always
leave the process being traced in a stopped state. With this update, the process
is left in the correct state after detaching. (BZ#594616)

Users are advised to upgrade to this updated strace package, which resolves this
issue.


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
