Updated syslinux packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The syslinux utility is responsible for booting the operating system kernel.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, the binaries were compiled without debugging information. As a consequence, the debuginfo files for some binaries were missing. With this update, the binaries include all required debug information.
Prior to this update, the isohybrid utility failed with a seek error when attempting to write ISO images to a USB device. As a consequence, the ISO images were on some systems not bootable. This update modifies the underlying code so that isohybrid now successfully writes the images to USB devices.
Users of syslinux are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which which fix these bugs.
