Description of problem:

findutils-4.1.20-7

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run 'find -size 10M'

This has already been addressed in a later version of the package (4.1.20-8) so
throwing in Modified.  Just need to get the package build into RHEL4 collection.

The latest find in the newly release RHEL4u4 (the one in at the above link) does
not work with -size 1M.

Still has findutils-4.1.20-7 ... this is not fixed.
Comment 16 Johnny Hughes 2006-08-14 13:17:26 EDT
the changelog says it is no longer on the man page ... however it is still there

 -size n[cwbkMG]
