RPM Re-Base The RedHat Package Manager (RPM) is now re-based to the Fedora 9 upstream version. rpm now adds secondary architecture-specific macro files on multi-arch systems. In addition, rpm now meets all certification criteria for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update also applies several upstream enhancements and bug fixes to rpm, including: * rpm no longer generates unnecessary .rpmnew and .rpmsave files on multi-arch systems. * A bug in the rpmgiNext() function of rpm prevented proper error reporting. This update applies the proper semantics for error reporting, thereby ensuring that rpm returns the correct exit code in all instances.
