[RHEA-1999:049-02] New Update Agent packages available

		   Red Hat, Inc. Errata Advisory

Synopsis:		Improved version of Update Agent available
Advisory ID:		RHEA-1999:049-02
Issue date:		1999-11-01
Updated On:		1999-11-03
Keywords:		abort up2date e-mail notification password

1. Topic:

An improved version of the Red Hat Update Agent is now available.
Visual confirmation of success or failure is provided at the end of
each update run.  In addition, a summary of the run is mailed to the
address(es) configured to receive e-mail notifications.  This new
version also makes the "Abort" button much more responsive than it was
previously, corrects password problems, and fixes several other
smaller bugs.

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

6568 6675

3. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 6.1, all architectures

4. Obsoleted by:

5. Conflicts with:

6. RPMs required:

Architecture neutral:

Source packages:

7. Problem description:

Abort button was almost non-functional in many cases.  E-mail was not
sent upon completion of an update run.  The list of packages which the
Update Agent determined should be skipped was displayed before
determining if the packages were actually present on the updates

(1999-11-03) Passwords made up of only numbers caused failures.

8. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:
    rpm -Uvh <filename>
where filename is the name of the RPM.

9. Verification:

MD5 sum                           Package Name 
7666a407c4023fff8496100a4bb16e38  noarch/up2date-1.0.6-1.noarch.rpm
0e0f0572b47b8d258d01eba5e49f3958  SRPMS/up2date-1.0.6-1.src.rpm
These packages are GPG signed by Red Hat, Inc. for security.  Our key
is available at:
You can verify each package with the following command:
    rpm --checksig  <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
    rpm --checksig --nogpg <filename>
