Trustix Secure Linux Bugfix Advisory #2005-0048

Package names: ltrace, mkbootdisk, mrtg, mtools, mysql,
php, pptpd, sqlite3, vim
Summary: Various bug fixes
Date: 2005-09-16
Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.2
Trustix Secure Linux 3.0

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Package description:
ltrace is a debugging program which runs a specified command until it
exits. While the command is executing, ltrace intercepts and records the
dynamic library calls which are called by the executed process and the
signals received by that process. It can also intercept and print the
system calls executed by the program.

The mkbootdisk program creates a standalone boot floppy disk for
booting the running system. The created boot disk will look for the
root filesystem on the device mentioned in /etc/fstab and includes an
initial ramdisk image which will load any necessary SCSI modules for
the system.

The Multi Router Traffic Grapher (MRTG) is a tool to monitor the traffic
load on network links. MRTG generates HTML pages containing PNG images
which provide a LIVE visual representation of this traffic.

Mtools is a collection of utilities for accessing MS-DOS files. Mtools
allow you to read, write and move around MS-DOS filesystem files (normally
on MS-DOS floppy disks). Mtools supports Windows95 style long file names,
OS/2 XDF disks, and 2m disks.

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 programs/libraries.

PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. PHP attempts to make it easy
for developers to write dynamically generated web pages. PHP also offers
built-in database integration for several commercial and non-commercial
database management systems, so writing a database-enabled web page with
PHP is fairly simple. The most common use of PHP coding is probably as a
replacement for CGI scripts. The mod_php module enables the Apache web
server to understand and process the embedded PHP language in web pages.

PPTPd, Point-to-Point Tunnelling Protocol Daemon, offers out
connections to pptp clients to become virtual members of the IP pool
owned by the pptp server. In effect, these clients become virtual members
of the local subnet, regardless of what their real IP address is. A
tunnel is built between the pptp server and client, and packets from the
subnet are wrapped and passed between server and client similar to other
C/S protocols.

SQLite is a C library that implements an embeddable SQL database engine.
Programs that link with the SQLite library can have SQL database access
without running a separate RDBMS process. The distribution comes with a
standalone command-line access program (sqlite) that can be used to
administer an SQLite database and which serves as an example of how to
use the SQLite library.

VIM (VIsual editor iMproved) is an updated and improved version of the vi
editor. Vi was the first real screen-based editor for UNIX, and is still
very popular. VIM improves on vi by adding new features: multiple windows,
multi-level undo, block highlighting and more.

Problem description:
ltrace < TSL 3.0 >
- Initial Entry into TSL 3.0

mkbootdisk < TSL 3.0 >
- New Upstream
- Switched to use syslinux rather then lilo
- Added --kernelargs command line option
- if --kernelargs isn't specified and grubby is available use it to get
the arguments to use
- use copy instead of mkinitrd to get the initrd

mrtg < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 >
- Now also count rsync servers

mtools < TSL 3.0 >
- Initial Entry into TSL 3.0

mysql < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 >
- New Upstream
- Multiple Bug Fixes

php < TSL 3.0 >
- Minor cleanup. Fixed Bug# 877.

pptpd < TSL 3.0 >
- New Upstream

sqlite3 < TSL 3.0 >
- New Upstream
- Fix the --enable-threadsafe option on the configure script
- Fix a code generator bug that occurs when the left-hand side of an
IN operator is constant and the right-hand side is a SELECT statement.
