4.293. setup

An updated setup package that fixes two bugs and adds various enhancements is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The setup package contains a set of important system configuration and setup files, such as passwd, group, and profile.

Bug Fixes

BZ#691425
Bash provides the PROMPT_COMMAND environment variable containing a command that is called when a prompt is displayed. Prior to this update, the PROMPT_COMMAND variable set by a custom profile.d script was overwritten with the default value from the /etc/bashrc script file. With this update, the /etc/bashrc script file has been updated so that it now respects a user-defined PROMPT_COMMAND variable, and does not overwrite it.
BZ#703052
Prior to this update, the /etc/host.conf configuration file contained a line "order host,bind". This line is no longer used by the glibc library and is therefore redundant. With this update, this line has been removed from the host.conf file.

Enhancements

BZ#706012
The retrace-server package creates a user ID (UID) pair and a group ID (GID) pair, both with the name "retrace" and number "174". This user and group is used by the Automated Bug Reporting Tool (ABRT) retracing server. Prior to this update, the aforementioned UID/GID pairs were not reserved by the setup package so that other packages or system administrators could have accidentally assigned those values to other users and groups. With this update, the setup package now reserves these UID and GID names and numbers so that accidental conflicts with other users and groups do not happen anymore.
BZ#709599
The rhev-agent package creates a user ID (UID) pair and a group ID (GID) pair, both with the name "rhevagent" and number "175". This user and group is used by RHEV-Agent. Prior to this update, the aforementioned UID/GID pairs were not reserved by the setup package so that other packages or system administrators could have accidentally assigned those values to other users and groups. With this update, the setup package now reserves these UID and GID names and numbers so that accidental conflicts with other users and groups do not happen anymore.
BZ#715266
The trafficserver package creates a user ID (UID) pair and a group ID (GID) pair, both with the name "ats" and number "176". This user and group is used for the configuration management functions over a cluster of nodes. Prior to this update, the aforementioned UID/GID pairs were not reserved by the setup package so that other packages or system administrators could have accidentally assigned those values to other users and groups. With this update, the setup package now reserves these UID and GID names and numbers so that accidental conflicts with other users and groups do not happen anymore.
All users are advised to upgrade to this updated setup package, which fixes these bugs and adds these enhancements.
