Bug Fix Advisory libtar bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0462-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-04-09
Last updated on: 2012-06-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

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

The libtar package contains a C library for manipulating tar archives. The
library supports both the strict POSIX tar format and many of the commonly used
GNU extensions.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the build system configuration files included in the libtar
package were incompatible with the way the rpmbuild tool extracts debugging
information from the binaries installed to the rpm build root during the build
of a package. As a consequence, the libtar-debuginfo package did not contain
debugging information. A patch has been applied to address this issue, and the
libtar-debuginfo package now contains the appropriate content. (BZ#729009)

All users of libtar are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
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
