On branch RHEL-6.3, file
has a small bug, which might have been introduced when manually editing the patch.
The problem is in the file path header, where it lists old and new file names:
--- mozilla/security/nss/lib/nss/nssinit.c 18 Oct 2011 19:03:31 -0000 1.114
+++ /mozilla/security/nss/lib/nss/nssinit.c 25 Jan 2012 19:54:07 -0000
The problem is the second line, which starts with a slash /
Because of this slash, when trying to apply this patch on a Fedora system, the patch tool reports an error message. In the RHEL environment, the patch probably has been applied fine.
This little detail should be fixed.
The fix will have zero effect on the actual code being used.
Since RHEL 6.3 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This patch was applied upstream and is included in the sources. We have rebased to nss-3.14 and the patch is no longer needed and we no longer carry it. The problem has been fixed with the rebase to 3.14.
