Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat Bug Fix Advisory
Synopsis: Updated Kerberos 5 packages available
Advisory ID: RHBA-2001:040-03
Issue date: 2001-03-30
Updated on: 2001-03-30
Product: Red Hat Linux
Keywords: libkrb5 stat
Cross references: RHSA-2001:025
Updated Kerberos 5 packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 7. These
updates resolve a linkage problem introduced in RHSA-2001:025.
2. Relevant releases/architectures:
Red Hat Linux 7.0 - alpha, i386
3. Problem description:
Shared libraries which use the stat, fstat, lstat, or mknod functions
provided by libc, and which are compiled without optimization enabled, will
include copies of those functions instead of references to the __stat,
__fstat, __lstat, and __mknod functions provided by libc.
When a binary is compiled using these shared libraries, the linker will
resolve references in such a way that the binary will require these symbols
to be present at run-time. If these symbols are not present, a binary
which requires them will fail unexpectedly when it tries to call the
The previously-issued Kerberos 5 errata packages were built with
optimization enabled, and triggered this problem in a number of packages
which are linked against the libkrb5 shared library.
These updates ensure compatibility with the libraries originally shipped
with Red Hat Linux 7 by forcing the inclusion of these symbols, regardless
of how the libkrb5 shared library is built.
To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:
rpm -Fvh [filenames]
where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains
the desired RPMs.
Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:
This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):
33580 - LPRng does not work after krb5 update

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
