Advisory: RHBA-2011:1025-1
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)

Details

An updated system-config-kickstart package that fixes one bug is now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The system-config-kickstart package contains the Kickstart Configurator, a
graphical tool for creating kickstart files.

This updated package fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update,system-config-kickstart did not handle IOError
(Input/output error) exceptions when trying to read the file given on the
command line. Due to this behavior, system-config-kickstart terminated
unexpectedly when it was started from the command line with a non-existing file.
This update allows IOError exceptions. Now, an error dialog is displayed if an
IOError occurs. (BZ#431950)

All system-config-kickstart users are advised to upgrade to this updated
package, which fixes this bug.
