Red Hat Training

A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Linux

5.18. brltty

Updated brltty packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
BRLTTY is a background process (daemon) which provides access to the Linux console (when in text mode) for a blind person using a refreshable braille display. It drives the braille display, and provides complete screen review functionality.

Bug Fixes

BZ#684526
Previously, building the brltty package could fail on the ocaml's unpackaged files error. This happened only if the ocaml package was pre-installed in the build root. The "--disable-caml-bindings" option has been added in the %configure macro so that the package now builds correctly.
BZ#809326
Previously, the /usr/lib/libbrlapi.so symbolic link installed by the brlapi-devel package incorrectly pointed to ../../lib/libbrlapi.so. The link has been fixed to correctly point to ../../lib/libbrlapi.so.0.5.
All users of brltty are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
