Updated pinentry packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The pinentry package contains a collection of simple PIN or password entry dialogs, which utilize the Assuan protocol as described by the Project Aegypten. The pinentry package also contains the command line version of the PIN entry dialog.
- Prior to this update, there was a problem when entering a password using the pinentry-curses utility; an error message was displayed instead of the password entry dialog if pinentry-curses was run under a user different from the user who owned the current tty. This bug has been fixed in this update so that no error message is now displayed and pinentry-curses asks for a password as expected.
All users of pinentry are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
