                   Red Hat Bug Fix Advisory

Synopsis:          up2date bug fix update
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2005:169-01
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHBA-2005-169.html
Issue date:        2005-04-01
Updated on:        2005-04-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords:          up2date RHN Red Hat Network
- - ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated up2date packages that fix a libgnat bug are now available for
64-bit platforms.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

The up2date packages contain the Red Hat Update Agent, that automatically
queries Red Hat Network servers to determine which packages need to be
updated on your machine.

On 64-bit systems, the list of packages needing an upgrade may be
incorrect, causing the system to attempt to update packages that are
already at the latest revision. This prevents the system from updating. In
particular, systems with the libgnat package installed report error
messages indicating that an update failed because the gcc package was
already updated. 

Users of the up2date packages are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which resolves this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:
