Bug Fix Advisory gnome-desktop bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1352-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-10-10
Last updated on: 2013-02-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)

Details

Updated gnome-desktop packages that fix a bug are now available.

The gnome-desktop package contains an internal library (libgnome-desktop) 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, when a user hit the system's hot-key (most commonly Fn+F7) to
change display configurations, the system could potentially switch to an invalid
mode, which would fail to display. With this update, gnome-desktop now selects
valid XRandR modes and correctly switching displays with the hot-key works as
expected. (BZ#829891)

All users of gnome-desktop 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
