Advisory: RHBA-2012:0413-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-03-26

Details

Updated python-slip packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The Simple Library for Python (SLIP) packages contain miscellaneous code for
convenience, extension and workaround purposes.

The python-slip packages have been upgraded to upstream version 0.2.20, which
provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version. In addition, this
update fixes a bug causing previous versions of python-slip to incorrectly
determine whether SELinux was enabled or not. Therefore, convenience functions
for writing files always attempted to set SELinux labels even if SELinux was
disabled. This could cause for example the system-config-date tool to fail to
change settings. (BZ#796323)

All users of python-slip are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant
