1.97.1. RHBA-2009:1608: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1608
An updated libXrandr package that fixes a dependency bug is now available.
libXrandr is the runtime library for the X11 RandR extension.
This update addresses the following issue:
* the libXrandr-devel package requires libXext-devel to work but the package's spec file was missing the necessary "Requires" line. If libXrandr-devel was installed separately (for example, by running "yum install libXrandr-devel") and libXext-devel was not already installed, libXrandr-devel did not work. This dependency has been added to the spec file with this update: installing the libXrandr-devel package now pulls down all required dependencies, ensuring libXrandr-devel works as expected. (BZ#498044)
Users are advised to upgrade to this updated libXrandr package, which resolves this problem.
