4.59. gnome-system-monitor

An updated gnome-system-monitor package that fixes one bug and adds one enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The gnome-system-monitor utility allows users to graphically view and manipulate the running processes on the system, and provides an overview of available resources such as CPU and memory.

Bug Fix

BZ#616487
The previous version of the gnome-system-monitor utility did not close the socket when it terminated, which may have rendered it unable to start for the second time. This update applies a patch that ensures the socket is properly closed when the utility terminates, and gnome-system-monitor now works as expected.

Enhancement

BZ#722866
Previously, the minimum width of the gnome-system-monitor window was limited by the minimum width of its content. Consequently, running this utility on a system with a large number of CPUs caused this window to be very large. This update adds a horizontal scrollbar to make sure the gnome-system-monitor window can fit to the screen even when the system has multiple CPUs.
All users of gnome-system-monitor are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug and adds this enhancement.
