Details

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

The python-numeric package is a Python module that provides enhanced support for
numerical operations.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, an attempt to use the Numeric.reshape() method to reshape an array
into a multi-dimensional array caused Python to terminate unexpectedly with the
following error message:

ValueError: total size of new array must be unchanged

With this update, a patch has been applied to address this issue, and the
Numeric.reshape() method no longer causes Python to crash. (BZ#703160)

Users are advised to upgrade to this updated python-numeric package, which fixes
this bug.


Solution

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

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red
