Details

An updated sox package that fixes a bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

SoX (Sound eXchange) is a sound file format converter that allows a user to
convert between many different digitized sound formats, as well as to use simple
sound manipulation functions, including sound effects.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, an attempt to convert an Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) file
that contained the MARK chunk may have failed with the following error:

sox: Failed reading file.aiff: AIFF: no sound data on input file

With this update, the underlying source code has been modified to target this
issue, and such files are now converted as expected. (BZ#651404)

All users of sox are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves
this issue.
