1.12.1.  RHBA-2009:0482: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:0482
Updated authconfig packages that fix a bug are now available.
The authconfig packages contain a program with both a command line and a GUI interface for configuring a system to use shadow passwords, or to function as a client for certain network user-information and authentication schemes.
  • when disabling caching using the system-config-authentication graphical interface or with the "authconfig --update --disablecache" command, authconfig did not properly stop ncsd, the name service cache daemon, which could have caused timeouts and delays during authentication or when user information was requested by applications. (BZ#471642)
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated authconfig packages, which resolve this issue.
