1.127.1. RHBA-2011:0113: bug fix update
An updated rhnlib package that provides bug fixes is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The rhnlib package consists of a collection of Python modules used by the Red Hat Network (RHN) software.
This update fixes the following bugs:
* Previously, the HTTP redirections were not handled correctly, which caused infinite loops.This update resolves this issue and redirections are now handled as expected. ( BZ#583020)
* Previously, the nonblocking mode tried to use nonexistent fcntl constants. This update corrects this error and the constructor of the NonBlockingFile now behaves as expected. ( BZ#583980)
* Previously, the registration of RHEL 4 systems failed if dmidecode returned BIOS information that contained non-XMLRPC-compliant characters. This update uses a XMLRPC-compliant set of characters. ( BZ#618250)
All users of rhnlib are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which addresses these issues.
1.127.2. RHBA-2010:0790: and rhn-client-tools bug fix update
Updated rhn-client-tools and rhnlib packages, that fix a bug that caused the Red Hat Network and Red Hat Network Satellite registration to fail when the Desktop Management Interface (DMI) contained a control character, or when the hardware name contained a non-ASCII character, are now available.
The rhnlib and rhn-client-tools packages contain a collection of Python modules that are used by the Red Hat Network (RHN) software.
This update fixes the following bug:
* Previously, the presence of less commonly used characters from Latin-1 and UTF-8 character sets in the hardware name rendered the system unable to register to both Red Hat Network and Red Hat Network Satellite Server. This error has been fixed, and the system registration now works as expected. ( BZ#639226)
All users of rhnlib and rhn-client-tools are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
