Synopsis:          Updated mew package available
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2001:123-05
Issue date:        2001-10-04
Updated on:        2001-10-09

1. Topic:

Fix for broken mew package in Red Hat Linux 7.2

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.2 - i386

3. Problem description:

The mew package included in Red Hat Linux 7.2 does not contain most of the
Emacs Lisp files that it should, due to an error in the rpm spec file. 
This update is required for the use of mew with Emacs.

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 to be an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat
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.
