1.91.1.  RHBA-2009:1090: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1090
An updated iputils package that fixes a bug is now available.
The iputils package contains basic utilities for monitoring a network, including ping.
This updated iputils package fixes the following bug:
  • it is the rdisc utility which is called at boot time to populate the network routing tables with default routes. This bug caused rdisc to fail during initialization when more than one IP address was assigned to a single interface. This has been solved so that when rdisc encounters two or more IP addresses assigned to the same interface, it continues working as expected. (BZ#470498)
All users of iputils are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
