[RHBA-2002:093-05] Updated SANE packages are available

                   Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat Bug Fix Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated SANE packages are available
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2002:093-05
Issue date:        2002-05-16
Updated on:        2002-05-30
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Keywords:          sane symlinks ldconfig
Cross references:  


1. Topic:

Updated SANE packages fix a problem observed when upgrading SANE.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386

3. Problem description:

During an upgrade, some symbolic links belonging to the sane-backends
package are deleted when the original package is removed.  However, this
takes place after the symbolic links were created by the new package.

The fix is to run /sbin/ldconfig in the sane-backends post-install scriptlet.

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 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):

64964 - upgrade failes to make link for xsane lib

6. RPMs required:

Red Hat Linux 7.3:

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