--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-3526

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : memtest86+
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.11
Release     : 9.fc9
URL         : http://www.memtest.org
Summary     : Stand-alone memory tester for x86 and x86-64 computers
Description :
Memtest86+ is a thorough stand-alone memory test for x86 and x86-64
architecture computers. BIOS based memory tests are only a quick
check and often miss many of the failures that are detected by
Memtest86+.

The ELF version should be used for booting from grub,
and avoids the following errors:
"Error 7: Loading below 1MB is not supported"
"Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format"
"Error 28: Selected item cannot fit into memory"

The script '/usr/sbin/memtest-setup' can be run (as root)
to add the memtest86+ entry to your GRUB boot menu.
