Fedora 9 Update: patch-2.5.4-35.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-5894
2008-07-09 00:02:17
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : patch
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.5.4
Release     : 35.fc9
URL         : http://www.gnu.org/software/patch/patch.html
Summary     : The GNU patch command, for modifying/upgrading files
Description :
The patch program applies diff files to originals.  The diff command
is used to compare an original to a changed file.  Diff lists the
changes made to the file.  A person who has the original file can then
use the patch command with the diff file to add the changes to their
original file (patching the file).

Patch should be installed because it is a common way of upgrading
applications.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update prevents patch from failing on systems that have SELinux disabled,
when the file to patch has an SELinux file context set.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Mon Jun 30 2008 Tim Waugh <twaugh redhat com> 2.5.4-35
- Don't fail if setfilecon() returns EPERM (bug #453365), although the
  setfilecon man page suggests that ENOTSUP will be returned in this
  case.
* Mon Jun 16 2008 Tim Waugh <twaugh redhat com> 2.5.4-34
- Only write simple backups for each file once during a run
  (bug #234822).
* Thu Jun 12 2008 Tim Waugh <twaugh redhat com> 2.5.4-33
- Fix selinux patch and apply it.  Build requires libselinux-devel.
