1. Topic:

Updated SANE packages that fix a shared library problem are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 9 - i386

3. Problem description:

SANE is a package for using document scanners.

A recent change in the way that the dynamic loader searches for shared
libraries has exposed a problem with the SANE 'backend' shared libraries. 
This problem may result in scanners not being recognized as available by SANE.

Users of SANE should upgrade to these erratum packages, which resolve this

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.

If up2date fails to connect to Red Hat Network due to SSL Certificate 
Errors, you need to install a version of the up2date client with an updated 
certificate.  The latest version of up2date is available from the Red Hat 
FTP site and may also be downloaded directly from the RHN website:


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

110174 - glibc update breaks xsane scanning

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>
