Synopsis:          Updated modutils package corrects PLT relocation bug.
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2003:143-01
Issue date:        2003-05-21
Updated on:        2003-05-21
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Cross references:  

1. Topic:

An updated modutils package that corrects a bug with respect to PLT
relocations is now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.2 - s390

3. Problem description:

The modutils package contains the software necessary to load and unload
kernel modules.

A prior version of modutils had a bug that caused PLT relocations to be
resolved incorrectly when loading a module.  This bug would result in a
crash when a module containing PLT relocations was loaded.  This patch
corrects the problem.

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. RPMs required:

Red Hat Linux 7.2:



6. Verification:

MD5 sum                          Package Name

tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
    md5sum <filename>
