5.40. cryptsetup-luks

Updated cryptsetup-luks packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The cryptsetup-luks packages provide a utility which allows users to set up encrypted devices with the Device Mapper and the dm-crypt target.

Bug Fix

For some configurations, the cryptsetup utility incorrectly translated major:minor device pairs to device names in the /dev/ directory (for example, on HP Smart Array devices). With this update, the underlying source code has been modified to address this issue, and the cryptsetup utility now works as expected. (BZ#755478) * If a device argument for the "cryptsetup status" command included a /dev/mapper/ prefix, the prefix was duplicated in the command's output. The output was fixed and no longer includes duplicated strings.
All users of cryptsetup-luks are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
