Bug Fix Advisory etherboot bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0056-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Multi OS (v. 5 client)
RHEL Virtualization (v. 5 server)

Details

Updated etherboot packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The etherboot packages provide an open-source network bootloader. Etherboot
replaces the proprietary Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE) ROMs. It also
provides additional features, such as DNS, HTTP and iSCSI.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The etherboot-zroms-kvm package runs the update-alternatives utility during
installation; however, the chkconfig package which provides the utility was
previously not required by etherboot-zroms-kvm. As a consequence, the
installation could fail with a "No such file or directory" error message. The
chkconfig package has been added as a dependency to ensure successful
installation of etherboot-zroms-kvm. (BZ#714880)

All etherboot users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.
