1.55.  findutils

1.55.1.  RHEA-2009:1410: enhancement update

An enhanced findutils package is now available.
The findutils package contains programs for locating files. The find utility searches for files matching a certain set of criteria. The xargs utility builds and executes command lines from standard input arguments.
This updated findutils package adds the following enhancement:
  • when using the "find" utility to search a directory hierarchy which contained autofs mounts, it dutifully triggered the aufofs mounts so that they could be searched, even when "find" had been directed to exclude NFS shares. With these updated packages, "find" possesses an additional exclusionary flag, "-xautofs", that prevents "find" from searching all autofs direct mounts in the searched directory hierarchy. (BZ#485672)
Users of findutils are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which adds this enhancement.
