Oracle Linux Bug Fix Advisory ELBA-2014-1730


The following updated rpms for Oracle Linux 6 have been uploaded to the 
Unbreakable Linux Network:




Description of changes:

- Modified paths of state and conf files
- Add owning and creating of state and conf files if nfsmountable is defined
- Add printing file names in error messages

- Add execution of register and deregister scripts during registration
   and deregistration if they exist.
- Add capability to make collection nfs mountable using macro nfsmountable.
- removed the dependency generators and all related changes
   (maintainers' demands)

- fix an obscure segfault when listing collections on i386
- fix registration to work with slash-ended paths
- add the %scl_dependency_generators macro
- drop recursive ownership of /usr/lib within SCL root

- register and deregister: if there is an error registering or deregistering
   one or more collection, skip it but return non-zero return code
- fix the problem with metapackage dependencies when BuildArch is specified

- register and deregister: include bash completion and help

- Collection's meta package should now have correct dependencies.

- Minor changes to prevent possible leaks.

- fixed dereferencing of a null pointer

- bumped up release

- updated man pages
- changed debuginfo package handling (#1071834)
- added capability of dynamically registering and deregistering 
collections (#1099394)

- fixed typo in macros.scl

- new dependency generators for RHEL6 (#1054820, #1052907)

- reverted the last patch, as it breaks some collections. The revert
   is necessary for RHSCL compose, we are looking for other solutions.

- new dependency generators for RHEL6 (#1054820, #1052907)

- add scl_source script for intercollection dependencies (#874417)
- updated macros in macros.scl-filesystem (#1029515, #1029516)
