An updated less package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The less package contains a text file browser that is similar to the more browser, but with more features ("less is more"). The less text file browser allows users to move backwards in the file as well as forwards. Because the less utility does not need to read the entire input file before it starts, it starts up faster than text editors.
* Prior to this update, a debuginfo file for a binary was missing from the less-debuginfo package. As a result, the crash analysis via the Automatic Bug-Reporting Tool (ABRT) did not work as expected and debugging via GNU Debugger (GDB) could fail. This update modifies the spec file so that the crash analysis via ABRT and debugging via GDB work as expected. (BZ#734827
