Details

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

The sos package contains a set of tools that gather information from system
hardware, logs and configuration files. The information can then be used for
diagnostic purposes and debugging.

This update fixes the following bug:

* With the RHBA-2011-1028 advisory, the sosreport utility introduced the
"--tmp-dir" command option allowing the sosreport tarballs to be stored in a
user-specified directory. After this change, sosreport no longer determined a
directory for the tarballs from the TMP environment variable. The Red Hat
Enterprise Virtualization 2.2. Log Collector application expected sosreport to
use the TMP variable therefore Log Collector failed to collect the tarballs
correctly from hosts. With this update, sosreport relies on the TMP environment
variable again if the directory is not specified by the "--tmp-dir" option. Log
Collector now works as expected. (BZ#748804)

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