Type: Product Enhancement Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2005-05-18
Last updated on: 2005-05-18

Details

An updated bootparamd package provides a fast DNS lookup feature and fixes
a configuration issue.

Bootparamd is a server process that provides information to diskless
clients required for booting.

This updated package adds a fast DNS lookup feature. It also provides a
fix to a problem where bootparamd would only evaluate the first line of
its configuration file.

All users of bootparamd should upgrade to this updated package.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system
