Updated ghostscript packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The Ghostscript suite contains utilities for rendering PostScript and PDF documents. Ghostscript translates PostScript code to common, bitmap formats so that the code can be displayed or printed.

Bug Fix

Due to a bug in a function that copies CIDFontType 2 fonts, document conversion attempts sometimes caused the ps2pdf utility to terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. A patch has been provided to address this bug so that the function now copies fonts properly and ps2pdf no longer crashes in the described scenario.
Users of ghostscript are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
