1.231.1.  RHBA-2009:1405: bug fix update

Updated util-linux packages that fix various bugs are now available.
The util-linux package contains a large variety of low-level system utilities that are necessary for a Linux system to function. Among others, util-linux contains the fdisk configuration tool and the login program.
The updated packages include the following fixes:
  • A previous version of the utility contained a scriptlet error in the post-install spec file.
The scriptlet error produced unnecessary error messages during the package installation process. With this update, the post-install spec file error messages are removed. (BZ#501870)
  • The man page for raw(8) incorrectly stated that raw device support was deprecated. This update reinstates the raw device support information. (BZ#509334)
Users of util-linux should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
