Fedora 10 Update: pptp-1.7.2-6.fc10



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-5781
2009-06-02 13:29:32
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : pptp
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 1.7.2
Release     : 6.fc10
URL         : http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) Client
Description :
Client for the proprietary Microsoft Point-to-Point Tunneling
Protocol, PPTP. Allows connection to a PPTP based VPN as used
by employers and some cable and ADSL service providers.

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

This update removes the checking in pptpsetup for MPPE support in the kernel and
pppd when creating a tunnel, since MPPE is included out of the box in Fedora 11.
The checks required the "strings" program, and hence would fail if the binutils
package (which includes the "strings" program) was not installed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Mon Jun  1 2009 Paul Howarth <paul city-fan org> 1.7.2-6
- Don't check for MPPE capability in kernel and pppd unless we're creating a
  tunnel that requires encryption
- Don't check for MPPE capability in kernel and pppd at all because current
  Fedora releases and EL >= 5 include MPPE support out of the box (#502967)
* Wed Mar 25 2009 Paul Howarth <paul city-fan org> 1.7.2-5
- Retain permissions on /etc/ppp/chap-secrets when using pptpsetup (#492090)
- Use upstream versions of patches
- Re-enable parallel build; Makefile dependencies now fixed
- Use perl rather than sed to edit Makefile, for spec compatibility with
  ancient distro releases
* Thu Feb 26 2009 Fedora Release Engineering <rel-eng lists fedoraproject org> - 1.7.2-4
- Rebuilt for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_11_Mass_Rebuild
