Description Eugene Teo (Security Response) 2007-05-18 00:38:01 EDT
Description of problem:
The latest amd automounter RPM is built against an older version of
linux/nfs_mount.h header file from the latest glibc-kernheaders RPM. The
NFS_MOUNT_VERSION for kernel-2.6.9-55.EL is 6, but the one from
glibc-kernheaders is 4. As a result, it will trigger a lot of warning messages
"kernel: nfs warning: mount version older than kernel" in the logs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc-kernheaders-2.4-9.1.100.EL
am-utils-6.0.9-15.RHEL4
kernel-2.6.9-55.EL

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install am-utils
2. tail -f /var/log/messages &
3. service amd start
  
Actual results:
"kernel: nfs warning: mount version older than kernel" messages appeared in logs.

Expected results:
"kernel: nfs warning: mount version older than kernel" messages should not
appear in logs.

Additional info:
By using the kernel headers from a more recent kernel, and rebuilding the amd
RPM would help resolve this problem.
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-09-07 15:35:06 EDT
This request was previously evaluated by Red Hat Product Management
for inclusion in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release, but
Red Hat was unable to resolve it in time.  This request will be
reviewed for a future Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-10-31 12:42:04 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
Comment 4 Ondrej Vasik 2011-02-18 06:58:14 EST
Thanks for report. As RHEL-4.9 was the last update for RHEL-4 and critical or security only fixes are now accepted there, closing this bugzilla WONTFIX. It is not security issue nor serious issue.
