Bug Fix Advisory gpxe bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0057-1
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 gpxe packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

The gpxe packages provide gPXE, an open source Preboot Execution Environment
(PXE) implementation and bootloader.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The gpxe-roms-qemu runs the update-alternatives utility during installation;
however, the chkconfig package, which provides the utility, was previously not
required by gpxe-roms-qemu. 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 gpxe-roms-qemu. (BZ#714882)

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