[opensuse-security] Release of Fou4s 0.15.0
  • From: Markus Gaugusch <markus@xxxxxxxxxxx>
  • Date: Tue, 24 Mar 2009 08:41:26 +0100 (CET)
  • Message-id: <alpine.LNX.2.00.0903240840320.5630@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

I'm glad to announce a new final version of fou4s!

This is an important update, especially because one of the last betas
doesn't find updates for SuSE 10.x anymore :-(
You need to upgrade manually on SuSE 10.x machines using the command
rpm -Uvh

Please note, that on SuSE 10.3 the update for hal causes fou4s to hang
after applying it. Furthermore, the dbus daemon has to be restarted
(rcdbus restart), otherwise the syslog is flooded with errors:
console-kit-daemon[1876]: WARNING: Couldn't connect to system bus: Failed
to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: Connection refused
To apply the upgrade, press ctrl-c after fou4s hangs, restart the dbus
daemon, and run fou4s again for the other updates.

New Features:
SuSE 10.1+10.2+10.3+11.0+11.1 support.
New option --older-than. Changed default of CheckFou4s to 1.
Changed default of RemoveAfterInstall to 1.
Don't switch back to buildtime with different version structure (fix wrong
downloads when using foreign package sources such as packman)

Bugfix: Fix missing updates for 10.3
Bugfix: Fix potential security hole when reading cache files
Bugfix: Fix wrong cache content after fou4s updating itself.
Bugfix: Don't install packages with different arch than original
Bugfix: Fix hang when installing first time on 11.x
Bugfix: Fix duplicate display of packages on 11.x when not working from
Bugfix: Delta RPMs now fully work on 11.x
Bugfix: Performance improvements on 11.x
Bugfix: List-Mode (-l) now working properly for SuSE 11.x
Bugfix: Cache was not properly invalidated for SuSE 11.x.
Bugfix: "fou4s line 1120" for SuSE 11.x, reported by Olaf Schreck
