Updated syslinux packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
The syslinux packages provide a utility, which is responsible for booting the operating system kernel.
Prior to this update, the syslinux utility used an inappropriate timeout value. As a consequence, the timeout took longer than expected. This update modifies the underlying code to remove this limitation. Now, syslinux timeouts work as expected.
Prior to this update, the syslinux-perl package contained unresolved Perl dependencies. As a consequence, syslinux-perl failed to build. This update modifies the underlying code to resolve these dependencies. Now, syslinux-perl builds as expected.
All users of syslinux are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
