Hello Red Hat,

There is a new release of libica on sourceforge.net (http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencryptoki/files/),
which is called libica-2.0.2.

Libica-2.0.2 contains some bug fixes. These are:
- Loop in the asm used in profiling. With a change in gcc this did not compile propperly anymore.
- Use stcke in a 31 bit system instead of stckf. The instruction stckf is not supported in 31 bit systems.
- Some minor fixes in the programming samples to make them easier readable.

The new release can be down loaded directly through:

Please consider this version for integration into RHEL 6 instead of the one in Fedora right now.
Comment 4 Dan Horák 2009-08-17 05:54:34 EDT
Fedora package updated to 2.0.2 and this change will be propagated into RHEL6.
