1.133.1. RHBA-2011:0090: bug fix and enhancement update

Updated sblim packages that fix various bugs and add an enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
SBLIM stands for Standards-Based Linux Instrumentation for Manageability. It consists of a set of standards-based, Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) modules that use the Common Information Model (CIM) standard to gather and provide systems management information, events, and methods to local or networked consumers via an CIM object services broker using the CMPI (Common Manageability Programming Interface) standard. This package provides a set of core providers and development tools for systems management applications.
This update fixes the following bugs:
* Previously, running the reposdump utility from the sblim-gather package with no additional arguments failed with a segmentation fault. With this update, this error no longer occurs, and reposdump now works as expected. ( BZ#565487)
* Due to a typing error in a post-installation script, a registration of a provider could fail. This error has been fixed, the typing error has been corrected, and the registration no longer fails. ( BZ#633248)
* Prior to this update, the sfcbrepos utility used getopt as a dependency. However, the sblim-sfcb package that provides this utility could be installed before the util-linux package that includes getopt. Consequent to this, the following error message could appear in the install.log file:
/usr/bin/sfcbrepos: line 8: getopt: command not found
Since getopt is actually not required for the script to perform its work, its absence is no longer logged in the install.log file. ( BZ#638555)
As well, this update adds the following enhancement:
* The sblim-gather packages have been updated to the latest upstream version. ( BZ#605317)
All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues and add this enhancement.
