Fedora 9 Update: patch-2.5.4-34.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-5384
2008-06-28 20:34:10
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : patch
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.5.4
Release     : 34.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 makes the patch program preserve SELinux file contexts, and fixes a
bug with the creation of simple backups (".orig" files) when the same file is
patched more than once in a single run.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* 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.
