1. Topic:

Updated rhpl packages which fix a file descriptor leak are now available
for Red Hat Linux 8.0.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 8.0 - i386

3. Problem description:

The rhpl package contains a python module used by the Network
Administration Tool (redhat-config-network) to query the network cards
available on the system. Due to a file descriptor leak, the system can run
out of file descriptors.

Red Hat Linux 8.0 users are advised to upgrade to the errata packages that
contain fixes which resolve this issue.

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):

74989 - OSError: Too many open files

6. RPMs required:

These packages are GPG signed by Red Hat for security.  Our key is
available from https://www.redhat.com/security/keys.html

You can verify each package with the following command:
    rpm --checksig -v <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:
    md5sum <filename>
