Issued on: 2014-02-20

Details

Updated initscripts packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The initscripts packages contain basic system scripts to boot the system, change
runlevels, activate and deactivate most network interfaces, and shut down the
system cleanly.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, when the path to a .pid file was provided, the status() and
killproc() functions checked only for the existence of the process with a PID
(Process ID) mentioned in the .pid file. Consequently, when the process died not
removing the .pid file, the PID was recycled and status() incorrectly reported
the process to be running. With this update, the "-b" option has been added to
specify the path to the binary. This path is subsequently checked by the
status() and killproc() functions, thus fixing the bug. (BZ#1055494)

Users of initscripts are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.


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
