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 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#600297)

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
