Advisory: RHBA-2011:0399-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A

Details

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

DejaGnu is an Expect/Tcl based framework for testing other programs, and
provides a single front end for all tests.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the runtest utility did not reset variables before
running a test, causing certain test cases to be incorrectly evaluated as
"UNRESOLVED". This update ensures that the variables are properly reset before a
test is run, and all test cases are now evaluated correctly. (BZ#460153)

All users of dejagnu are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.
