Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 185479
bump lftp to current version
Last modified: 2014-11-09 17:30:38 EST
Description of problem:
lftp in RHEL4 is version 3.0.6, released on 2004-06-12. Current version is
3.4.0 which was released on 2005-12-31. This version has *many* bugfixes and
includes DAV support. Please consider upgrading lftp for the next Update spin.
Also note this will require perl-String-CRC32 to be added for dependancies.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We are not allowed to upgrade any software in RHEL to a version number change -
all fixes must be backported for specific bugs. If you'd like to raise a
bugzilla for each lftp bug that you want fixed, I can backport changes from
3.4.x to 3.0.6 to fix each bug.
Alternatively, you could simply install the lftp-3.4.2-1.EL4 and
perl-String-CRC32-1.3-1.EL4 RPMs from :
There are binary i386 RPMs there, and the SRPM, so if you need lftp for a
different architecture, then :
$ rpmbuild --rebuild lftp-3.4.2-1.EL4.src.rpm
$ rpmbuild --rebuild perl-String-CRC32-1.3-1.EL4.src.rpm
These RPMs will not be "officially supported" by Red Hat, but I as the lftp
and perl-String-CRC32 package maintainer do undertake to support them.
Well, I'll hand this over to PM for consideration - can we update lftp to 3.4.x
in RHEL-4 ? I can't see any negative impact.
lftp still at lftp-3.0.6-3 with no patches (i.e. the source has no patches as I
Re-based to current RHEL5 version 3.7.3.
There is no another issue. Don't recommend bump.
