Fedora Core 1 Testing Update: glibc-2.3.2-101.4
Posted on: 01/07/2004 05:29 PM

Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2003-045
2004-01-07
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Name : glibc
Version : 2.3.2
Release : 101.4
Summary : The GNU libc libraries.
Description :
The glibc package contains standard libraries which are used by multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and memory, as well as to make upgrading easier, common system code is kept in one place and shared between programs. This particular package contains the most important sets of shared libraries: the standard C library and the standard math library. Without these two libraries, a Linux system will not function.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This glibc update fixes lots of bugs in the regular expression matcher and speeds it up. It fixes a couple of other bugs as well.
