1. Topic:

Updated stunnel packages are available for Red Hat Linux 7.

Red Hat Linux 7.0 - alpha, i386

3. Problem description:

When invoked in daemon mode (that is, without the -l or -f flags), stunnel will attempt to log its process ID to a file in the /var/stunnel directory, which does not exist. This errata changes the default directory used for PID files to /var/run.

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):

22623 - wring path with updates stunnel-3.9-1
