Fedora Update Notification

Name : binutils
Version :
Release : 4
Summary : A GNU collection of binary utilities.
Description :
Binutils is a collection of binary utilities, including ar (for creating, modifying and extracting from archives), as (a family of GNU assemblers), gprof (for displaying call graph profile data), ld (the GNU linker), nm (for listing symbols from object files), objcopy (for copying and translating object files), objdump (for displaying information from object files), ranlib (for generating an index for the contents of an archive), size (for listing the section sizes of an object or archive file), strings (for listing printable strings from files), strip (for discarding symbols), and addr2line (for converting addresses to file and line).

Update Information:

An assembler parsing bug has been discovered in binutils released in Fedora Core 1. The bug affects at least Linux kernel versions 2.5.63 and later, where
nr_syscalls=(.-sys_call_table)/4 line set nr_syscalls incorrectly to (.-sys_call_table) when assembled by binutils and later.
