Details

Updated systemtap packages that fix multiple bugs and add various enhancements
are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

SystemTap is a tracing and probing tool to analyze and monitor activities of the
operating system, including the kernel. It provides a wide range of filtering
and analysis options.

The systemtap packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.8, which
provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.
(BZ#751479)

This update fixes also the following bug:

* Prior to this update, updating the systemtap package on client machines could
fail because the systemap-testsuite is not designed for these machines. To work
around this problem, remove the systemtap-testsuite subpackage before upgrading
the systemtap package on client machines. (BZ#843392)

All users of systemtap are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
