1. Topic:

Updated mgetty packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 6.2 and 7.x.
These packages fix packaging errors present in previous versions.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 5.2 - alpha, i386, sparc

Red Hat Linux 6.2 - alpha, i386, sparc

Red Hat Linux 7.0 - alpha, i386

Red Hat Linux 7.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

Previously-issued mgetty packages did not log messages correctly.  Previous
packages would encounter errors when attempting to spool outgoing fax jobs
due to an incorrect patch applied to the faxspool script.  Log files for
vgetty and vm were also not rotated.

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:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
