Fedora Core 1 Update: initscripts-7.42.2-1
Posted on: 12/03/2003 05:51 AM

Fedora Update Notification

Name : initscripts
Version : 7.42.2
Release : 1
Summary : The inittab file and the /etc/init.d scripts.
Description :
The initscripts package contains the basic system scripts used to boot your Red Hat system, change runlevels, and shut the system down cleanly. Initscripts also contains the scripts that activate and deactivate most network interfaces.

Update Information:

New initscripts packages are available. These packages fix an issue with the permissions when mounting /dev/pts, which fixes the use of mesg or write, as well as eliminates some errors from pty helper programs. It also fixes manipulation of xDSL and other interfaces where the nickname does not match the device name, use of IPv6 with ISDN devices, and removes an extraneous ethtool error message on devices that don't support ethtool.
