Updated firstaidkit packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
FirstAidKit is a tool that runs automated diagnostics of an installed system.
- Previously, FirstAidKit's GRUB plug-in incorrectly reported failure if GRUB was installed into the Master Boot Record (MBR). Due to the plug-in being unreliable, it has been removed from the firstaidkit package.
- The firstaidkit-plugin-grub package has been removed from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2. As a consequence, in rare cases, the system upgrade operation may fail with unresolved dependencies if the plug-in has been installed in a previous version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. To avoid this problem, the firstaidkit-plugin-grub package should be removed before upgrading the system. However, in most cases, the system upgrade completes as expected.
All users of firstaidkit are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
