Bug Fix Advisory NetworkManager bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1023-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated NetworkManager packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

NetworkManager is a system network service that manages network devices and
connections, attempting to keep active network connectivity when available. It
manages Ethernet, wireless, mobile broadband (WWAN), and Point-to-Point Protocol
over Ethernet (PPPoE) devices, and provides virtual private network (VPN)
integration with a variety of different VPN services.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, stopping the messagebus service, either manually or
during a routine system shutdown, could cause certain NetworkManager components
to terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. With this update, the
underlying source code is modified to target this issue. Now, NetworkManager
components exit with a 0 return code when the messagebus service is stopped.
(BZ#580393)

* Prior to this update, connecting to WPA Enterprise networks with CHAP
authentication could cause the network dialog to terminate unexpectedly with a
segmentation fault due to an incorrect index. This update modifies the source
code to use the correct index. Now, the network dialog works as expected.
(BZ#644256)

All NetworkManager users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix these bugs.


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
