Details

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

The upstart packages contain an event-based replacement for the /sbin/init
daemon that starts tasks and services during boot, stops them during shut down,
and supervises them while the system is running.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the upstart daemon reset the console to default options not only
for jobs with "console owner" specified in its configuration file, but also for
jobs with "console output" specified. As a consequence, when stopping a service
which had a native upstart job and "console output" specified, X.Org failed and
a coredump was generated, also logging out the user. This bug is now fixed, and
upstart only resets the console to default settings for jobs with "console
owner" specified in the configuration file. (BZ#1073330)

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