--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-7128
2009-06-30 20:57:21
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : dhcp
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 4.1.0
Release     : 22.fc11
URL         : http://isc.org/products/DHCP/
Summary     : Dynamic host configuration protocol software
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:

This update addresses two problems:    - On 32-bit x86 systems, dhclient would
sometimes crash after sending a DHCPDECLINE.    - The dhclient-script would
generate SELinux denials when trying to use the mv command.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Fri Jun 26 2009 David Cantrell <dcantrell redhat com> - 12:4.1.0-22
- Fix SELinux denials in dhclient-script when the script makes backup
  configuration files and restores them later (#483747)
* Fri Jun 26 2009 David Cantrell <dcantrell redhat com> - 12:4.1.0-21
- Handle cases in add_timeout() where the function is called with a NULL
  value for the 'when' parameter (#506626)
