This issue should also affect RHEL2.

Removing embargo - This issue was leaked public early by SUSE.
Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2005-02-23 08:33:58 EST
I just ran some tests on the htdig-3.1.6 version that we currently
ship with RHEL3 and RHEL2.1 and it seems as those versions aren't
affected by this bug as htsearch actually checks if it is run as a
cgi-bin and doesn't display the config file name if there was an error
in that case.

If someone could confirm my tests i think we could close this as not a
bug for RHEL3 and RHEL2.1

Read ya, Phil
Comment 4 Josh Bressers 2005-03-29 16:43:15 EST
I just tried this on RHEL2.1.  I'd be happy to close this as NOTABUG.  I'll
leave it to you though Phil.
Comment 5 Phil Knirsch 2005-03-30 03:20:13 EST
OK, then after this confirmation i'm closing this as not a bug.

Thanks Josh!

Read ya, Phil
