Fedora 9 Update: glibc-2.8-8



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-6260
2008-07-23 03:25:25
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : glibc
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.8
Release     : 8
URL         : http://sources.redhat.com/glibc/
Summary     : The GNU libc libraries
Description :
The glibc package contains standard libraries which are used by
multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and
memory, as well as to make upgrading easier, common system code is
kept in one place and shared between programs. This particular package
contains the most important sets of shared libraries: the standard C
library and the standard math library. Without these two libraries, a
Linux system will not function.

ChangeLog:

* Wed Jul 16 2008 Jakub Jelinek <jakub redhat com> 2.8-8
- another nscd fix
- fix unbuffered vfprintf (#455360)
* Tue Jul  8 2008 Jakub Jelinek <jakub redhat com> 2.8-7
- assorted nscd fixes (#450704, #445656, #449358)
- misc fixes (BZ#3406, BZ#6461, BZ#6472, BZ#6612, BZ#6657, BZ#6723, BZ#6719)
- fix *scanf in -std=c99 mode
- add lt translations
- some SPARC fixes
- fix regexp.h (#446406)
- fix powerpc {,l}lround{,f} assembly from clobbering %cr[34]
  registers (#450790)
* Mon May 26 2008 Tom "spot" Callaway <tcallawa redhat com> 2.8-6
- disable async-unwind-tables for soinit.c and sofini.c
- re-enable fasynchronous-unwind-tables
* Sun May 18 2008 Tom "spot" Callaway <tcallawa redhat com> 2.8-5
- fasynchronous-unwind-tables causes failures on sparc arches, dont use it
* Fri May 16 2008 Tom "spot" Callaway <tcallawa redhat com> 2.8-4
- sparc64 gets unhappy unless the -mcpu= flag is in the GCC invocation,
  not just in BuildFlags. This is probably a compiler issue (-m64 
  should infer -mcpu=ultrasparc), but to get things building, we'll 
  work around it like this for now.
