1.103. iputils

An updated iputils package that fixes various bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The iputils package contains basic utilities for monitoring a network, including ping.
Bug Fixes
The ping and ping6 commands were previously not compiled as position independent executables (PIE). In this update, they are now built as PIE executables.
Previously, the tracepath6 program that is included in the iputils package failed to resolve a target when using the "-n" option and a hostname as the target. The fix for this problem has been provided so that tracepath6 now works as expected.
Previously, when the rdisc utility that is included in the iputils package was run on a system with an interface having two IP addresses assigned to the interface, an error was issued and rdisc failed to start. The bug has been fixed and the rdisc start failure no longer occurs.
All iputils users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
