Bug Fix Advisory mlocate bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1355-1
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)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated mlocate packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise 6.

The mlocate packages provide a locate/updatedb implementation. Mlocate keeps a
database of all existing files and allows you to look up files by name.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, the locate(1) manual page contained a misprint. This
update corrects the misprint. (BZ#690800)

* Prior to this update, the mlocate tool aborted the "updatedb" command if an
incorrect filesystem implementation returned a zero-length file name. As a
consequence, the locate database was not be updated. This update detects invalid
zero-length file names, warns about them, and continues to the locate database.
(BZ#699363)

All users of mlocate are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
these bugs.
