Description

Updated mgetty packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 6.2 and 7.x. These packages fix packaging errors present in previous versions.

Previously-issued mgetty packages did not log messages correctly. Previous packages would encounter errors when attempting to spool outgoing fax jobs due to an incorrect patch applied to the faxspool script. Log files for vgetty and vm were also not rotated.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-mgetty
  • redhat-upgrade-mgetty-sendfax
  • redhat-upgrade-mgetty-viewfax
  • redhat-upgrade-mgetty-voice
