5.175. lsof

An updated lsof package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The lsof (LiSt Open Files) package provides a utility to list information about files that are open and running on Linux and UNIX systems.

Bug Fixes

Previously, only the first "+e" or "-e" option was processed and the rest were ignored. Consequently it was not possible to exclude more than one file system from being subjected to kernel function calls. This update fixes this issue and lsof now functions as expected with multiple +e or -e options.
Prior to this update, the lsof utility ignored the "-w" option if both the "-b" and the "-w" options were specified. As a consequence, lsof failed to suppress warning messages. Now, the -w option successfully suppresses warning messages.
All users of lsof are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
