Comment 1 Matthew Miller 2006-07-11 13:42:17 EDT
Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.


NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.

Comment 2 John Thacker 2006-10-25 16:19:08 EDT
Closed per above message and lack of response.  Note that FC1 and FC2 are not even
supported by Fedora Legacy anymore.
