Fedora 9 Update: dhcp-4.0.0-18.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-7234
2008-09-16 04:20:01
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : dhcp
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 4.0.0
Release     : 18.fc9
URL         : http://isc.org/products/DHCP/
Summary     : DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server and relay agent
Description :
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol which allows
individual devices on an IP network to get their own network
configuration information (IP address, subnetmask, broadcast address,
etc.) from a DHCP server. The overall purpose of DHCP is to make it
easier to administer a large network.  The dhcp package includes the
ISC DHCP service and relay agent.

To use DHCP on your network, install a DHCP service (or relay agent),
and on clients run a DHCP client daemon.  The dhcp package provides
the ISC DHCP service and relay agent.

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

A problem was discovered in the option handling code in dhclient that was
causing the domain-search option to still have \032 when written to
/etc/resolv.conf.  This update resolves that problem.    In addition, SELinux
contexts are restored on files that /sbin/dhclient-script creates (backup copies
of configuration files that are copied back in to place when an interface is
taken down).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Wed Aug  6 2008 David Cantrell <dcantrell redhat com> - 12:4.0.0-18
- Remove 'c' from the domain-search format string in common/tables.c
- Prevent \032 from appearing in resolv.conf search line (#450042)
- Restore SELinux context on saved /etc files (#451560)
