A prelink update has been released for Fedora Core 3

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : prelink
Version : 0.3.3

Release : 0.fc3

Summary : An ELF prelinking utility
Description :
The prelink package contains a utility which modifies ELF shared libraries and executables, so that far less relocations need to be resolved at runtime and thus programs come up faster.


* Tue Nov 23 2004 Jakub Jelinek jakub@redhat.com 0.3.3-0.fc3

- if layout code needs to re-prelink some library, make sure all libraries that depend on it are re-prelinked too (#140081)
- add several more checks before deciding it is ok to prelink a binary (even if another bug like #140081 was in, these checks should hopefully catch it and refuse to (re-)prelink the binary)
- added new PRELINK_NONRPM_CHECK_INTERVAL variable to /etc/prelink, defaulting to 7 days. Prelink nightly job will not do anything if that interval has not elapsed since last prelinking and and the rpm database has not been modified since that prelinking. This is useful if you rely on rpm/up2date/yum/apt-rpm for library and binary updates. If you combine it with other means (installs from source, tarballs etc.), you probably want to set PRELINK_NONRPM_CHECK_INTERVAL=0.
- update prelink man page (#126468)
