Trustix Secure Linux Bugfix Advisory #2005-0027

Package name:      apache bittorrent cyrus-imapd mailman mod_perl
                   mysql zlib
Summary:           Package fixes
Date:              2005-06-06
Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.1
                   Trustix Secure Linux 2.2
                   Trustix Operating System - Enterprise Server 2

- - --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Package description:
  Apache is a full featured web server that is freely available, and also
  happens to be the most widely used.
  BitTorrent gives you the same freedom to publish previously enjoyed by
  only a select few with special equipment and lots of money.
  You have something terrific to publish -- a large music or video file,
  software, a game or anything else that many people would like to have.
  But the more popular your file becomes, the more you are punished by
  soaring bandwidth costs. If your file becomes phenomenally successful
  and a flash crowd of hundreds or thousands try to get it at once, your
  server simply crashes and no one gets it.  There is a solution to this
  vicious cycle. BitTorrent, the result of over two years of intensive
  development, is a simple and free software product that addresses all
  of these problems.
  The Cyrus IMAP server is a scaleable enterprise mail system
  designed for use from small to large enterprise environments using
  standards-based technologies.
  Mailman is software to help manage email discussion lists, much like
  Majordomo and Smartmail. Unlike most similar products, Mailman gives
  each mailing list a webpage, and allows users to subscribe,
  unsubscribe, etc. over the Web. Even the list manager can administer
  his or her list entirely from the Web. Mailman also integrates most
  things people want to do with mailing lists, including archiving, mail
  <-> news gateways, and so on.
  Mod_perl incorporates a Perl interpreter into the Apache web server,
  so that the Apache web server can directly execute Perl code.
  Mod_perl links the Perl runtime library into the Apache web server and
  provides an object-oriented Perl interface for Apache's C language
  API.  The end result is a quicker CGI script turnaround process, since
  no external Perl interpreter has to be started.
  MySQL is a true multi-user, multi-threaded SQL (Structured Query
  Language) database server. MySQL is a client/server implementation
  that consists of a server daemon (mysqld) and many different client
  The zlib compression library provides in-memory compression and
  decompression functions, including integrity checks of the uncompressed
  data.  This version of the library supports only one compression method
  (deflation), but other algorithms may be added later, which will have
  the same stream interface.  The zlib library is used by many different
  system programs.
Problem description:
  - Rebuilt with mod_perl to activate changes to Apache2, Bug #811
  - Fixing default httpd.conf to reflect correct locations, Bug #701
  - Start bittorrent last, chkconfig changed to 99 01. Fix Bug #803.
  - Added missing PreReq for chkconfig and tsl-utils. ( Ref. Bug #800)
  - Changed chkconfig of cyrus to 76 24
  - New Upstream

  - Modified perl.conf according to new mod_perl version of 2.0.
  - Fixed duplicate packaging of /usr/bin/mysqladmin (Fix. Bug #823).
  - Man page for mysqladmin now owned by mysql-shared.
  - New Upstream
  - Vendor Fix for CAN-2005-0797.  Note that this was fixed in an
    earlier update for this package; this is merely a sync with upstream.
  - Fix bug when decompressing dynamic blocks with no distance codes
  - Do not return an error when using gzread() on an empty file

  We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded.
  Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this
  package, you may want to remove it from your system.
