1. Topic:

Updated stunnel packages are available for Red Hat Linux 7.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.0 - alpha, i386

3. Problem description:

When invoked in daemon mode (that is, without the -l or -f flags), stunnel
will attempt to log its process ID to a file in the /var/stunnel directory,
which does not exist.  This errata changes the default directory used for
PID files to /var/run.

4. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.

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

22623 - wring path with updates stunnel-3.9-1

6. RPMs required:

Red Hat Linux 7.0:

SRPMS: 
ftp://updates.Red Hat.com//7.0/SRPMS/stunnel-3.10-2.src.rpm

alpha: 
ftp://updates.Red Hat.com//7.0/alpha/stunnel-3.10-2.alpha.rpm

i386: 
ftp://updates.Red Hat.com//7.0/i386/stunnel-3.10-2.i386.rpm



7. Verification:

MD5 sum                           Package Name

You can verify each package with the following command:
    rpm --checksig  

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
