CentOS Errata and Security Advisory 2008:0556

https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2008-0556.html

The following updated files have been uploaded and are currently syncing to the mirrors:

x86_64:
freetype-2.1.9-7.el4.6.i386.rpm
freetype-2.1.9-7.el4.6.x86_64.rpm
freetype-demos-2.1.9-7.el4.6.x86_64.rpm
freetype-devel-2.1.9-7.el4.6.x86_64.rpm
freetype-utils-2.1.9-7.el4.6.x86_64.rpm

src:
freetype-2.1.9-7.el4.6.src.rpm


NOTE: These freetype updates are like the upstream version, however they break several GUI packages including Firefox and OpenOffice.org. Since CentOS does not do technical changes to our RPMS (we only patch as required to change logos and trademarks), we have made testing RPMS available that are our best effort at fixing this issue. You will need to manually install them from this bug: http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=2908
