1.280. system-config-kickstart

An updated system-config-kickstart package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The system-config-kickstart package contains Kickstart Configurator, a graphical tool for creating kickstart files.
Bug Fixes
When a user opened an existing file, Kickstart Configurator did not clear the partition information, and the configuration from the file was incorrectly added to the previous configuration. With this update, the underlying source code has been adapted to address this issue, and opening a file now clears the previous partition information as expected.
In the "Authentication" tab, the default hash function for shadow passwords was set to MD5. This update changes the default option to SHA-512.
Users of system-config-kickstart are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
