[RHBA-2001:031-05] New logcheck packages are available

                   Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat Bug Fix Advisory

Synopsis:          New logcheck packages are available
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2001:031-05
Issue date:        2001-03-13
Updated on:        2001-04-19
Product:           Red Hat Powertools
Cross references:  

1. Topic:

New logcheck packages are available which solve the problem of having to
edit the shell script in /usr/bin.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Powertools 7.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

In previous packages of logcheck, the shell script would have to be
manually edited. This breaks LSB compliance, since it is not a config file
and is located in /usr/bin.

The updated packages solve this problem by removing the configuration
options from the shell script and placing them in a separate config file
located in /etc/logcheck.

4. Solution:

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:


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

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

31069 - /usr/bin/logcheck.sh not marked as a config file

6. RPMs required:

Red Hat Powertools 7.1:

tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
    rpm --checksig --nogpg <filename>
