Advisory ID:       RHBA-2001:153-06

Updated on:        2001-12-06

1. Topic:

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.1 - alpha, i386, ia64

Red Hat Linux 7.2 - i386

3. Problem description:

Due to terminal handling problems in /bin/login, tcsh would not find the
controlling terminal correctly, and a shell in single user mode would
exhibit strange terminal input characteristics. This update fixes both of
these problems.

4. 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
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):

54741 - telnet malfunction after upgrade to util-linux-2.11f-11.7.1

6. RPMs required:
