1. Topic:

New libtiff and groff packages are available to fix minor date-related issues.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 6.x, all architectures
Red Hat Linux 5.x, all architectures

3. Problem description:

According to the groff changelog:
* Y2k fixes. Don't assume that the current year precedes 2000.

According to the libtiff changelog:
* Fixed apocalypse-inducing y2k bug in contrib/ras/ras2tiff.c

Note: the newer libtiff libraries no longer support LZW compression of TIFF images, due to patent issues. LZW decompression is still supported, though.

4. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:
rpm -Uvh
where filename is the name of the RPM.
