Bug Fix Advisory gnome-desktop bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0405-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-03-20
Last updated on: 2012-06-20

Details

An updated gnome-desktop package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The gnome-desktop package contains an internal library (libgnomedesktop) used to
implement some portions of the GNOME desktop, and also some data files and other
shared components of the GNOME user environment.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, due to an object not being destroyed, the Nautilus file manager
could consume an excessive amount of memory. Consequently, constantly growing
resident memory would slow down the system. The source code has been modified to
prevent memory leaks from occurring and Nautilus now consumes a reasonable
amount of memory. (BZ#639732)

All users of gnome-desktop are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes this bug.


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 use the Red
Hat Network to apply this update are available at
