Bug Fix Advisory syslinux bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0086-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-08
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated syslinux packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux.

The syslinux packages provide a utility, which is responsible for booting the
operating system kernel.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, the syslinux utility used an inappropriate timeout
value. As a consequence, the timeout took longer than expected. This update
modifies the underlying code to remove this limitation. Now, syslinux timeouts
work as expected. (BZ#471067)

* Prior to this update, the syslinux-perl package contained unresolved Perl
dependencies. As a consequence, syslinux-perl failed to build. This update
modifies the underlying code to resolve these dependencies. Now, syslinux-perl
builds as expected. (BZ#844250)

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