Bug Fix Advisory yum-updatesd bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0067-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated yum-updatesd package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The yum-updatesd package provides notification of updates which are available to
be applied to the system. This notification can be done either via syslog, email
or over the D-BUS communication system.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Previously, after calling the doSetup routine the yum-updatesd daemon was
losing the contents of the "ident" variable. Consequently, the data sent to
syslog could not be identified properly in the /var/log/messages file. This
update modifies the "ident" variable to preserve as expected and information in
syslog messages in the /var/log/messages file is correct. (BZ#563494)

* Due to a misprint, email notifications about available updates contained the
word "packets" instead of "packages". This update corrects the spelling.
(BZ#597431)

All users of the yum-updatesd are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which fixes these bugs.


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
