1.125.1. RHBA-2009:1607: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1607
An updated mtx package that fixes one bug is now available.
The mtx package contains utilities that control single or multi-drive SCSI media changers such as tape changers, autoloaders, tape libraries, or optical media jukeboxes. It can also be used with media changers that use the ’ATTACHED’ API, presuming that they properly report the MChanger bit as required by the SCSI T-10 SMC specification.
This updated package provides a fix for the following bug:
* if the scsitape utility was run with an unknown command-line option (eg "-h", a switch option not used by scsitape), the application crashed with a Segmentation fault error. This update adds a termination entry to the end of the pertinent scsitape array. When an unknown command-line option is used, scsitape now exits cleanly and returns usage documentation to std out. (BZ#513984)
All mtx users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
