1.233.1. RHBA-2009:1609: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1609
Updated yp-tools packages that fix a bug are now available.
The Network Information Service (NIS) is a system which provides network information (login names, passwords, home directories, group information) to all of the machines on a network. NIS can enable users to login on any machine on the network, as long as the machine has the NIS client programs running and the user's password is recorded in the NIS passwd database. NIS was formerly known as Sun Yellow Pages (YP).
These updated yp-tools packages fix the following bug:
* the yp-tools-debuginfo package did not contain debugging information, even though the yp-tools package itself contained ELF (Executable and Linking Format) objects. With these updated packages, the debuginfo package now contains debugging information. (BZ#500642)
All users of yp-tools are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
