1.159.1.  RHBA-2009:0389: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:0389
An updated numactl package that fixes a bug is now available.
numactl is Simple NUMA policy support. It consists of a numactl program to run other programs with a specific NUMA policy and a libnuma to do allocations with NUMA policy in applications.
  • the numactl-devel subpackage did not require the same version as the primary numactl package. The absence of this requirement could lead to situations where the version of the primary package installed on a system differed from the version of the subpackage. In this updated package, the subpackage requires the same version of the primary package. With the version of the subpackage aligned to that of the primary package, the interoperability of these components is ensured. (BZ#467022)
Users are advised to upgrade to this updated numactl package which resolves this issue.
