                   Red Hat, Inc. Bug Fix Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated mysql packages are available for Red Hat Linux 7.0
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2000:067-02
Issue date:        2000-09-26
Updated on:        2000-09-26
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Keywords:          mysql permissions var.pid

1. Topic:

The mysql packages shipped with Red Hat Linux 7.0 have too restrictive permissions and have problems handling the pid file.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.0 - i386

3. Problem description:

The mysql packages shipped with Red Hat Linux 7.0 don't allow users to access the socket, causing the package to work for users "root" and "mysql" only. Also, the pid file handling has been fixed.

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):

17432 - MySQL configuration file name changed, socket dir perms wrong

6. RPMs required:
