1. Topic:

Updated svgalib package available

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Powertools 7.0 - i386

3. Problem description:

The sgvalib package in Powertools 7 is broken when compiling apps with svgalib support. The result of the problem is that linking of programs with -lvga included cause ld to exit complaining /usr/lib/libvga.so.1 contains undefined references to __global_sti__global_cli.

4. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

19732 - svgalib package is broken in 7.0
19869 - libvga.so undefined __global_cli __global_sti
