Fedora 9 Update: tftp-0.48-6.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-4396
2008-05-28 22:35:22
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : tftp
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 0.48
Release     : 6.fc9
URL         : http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/network/tftp/
Summary     : The client for the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP)
Description :
The Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) is normally used only for
booting diskless workstations.  The tftp package provides the user
interface for TFTP, which allows users to transfer files to and from a
remote machine.  This program and TFTP provide very little security,
and should not be enabled unless it is expressly needed.

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

The -4 and -5 were too problematic so this version brings it back to -3.  We are
forced to push this reversion as a higher number in order to undo the damage of
-4.    In F9 the default tftp directory changed and we provide no back auto-
migration or compat symlink because doing so was too risky.  See Bug #447135 for
more details or if you want to discuss this issue further.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Wed May 21 2008 Warren Togami <wtogami redhat com  - 0.48-6
- undo symlink stuff completely because they are problematic
  See Bug #447135 for details.
* Wed May 21 2008 Martin Nagy <mnagy redhat com> - 0.48-5
- fix troubles caused by added symlink
* Tue May 20 2008 Martin Nagy <mnagy redhat com> - 0.48-4
- add symlink to /var/lib/tftpboot
