Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : alsa-lib
Version     : 1.0.6
Release     : 7.FC3
Summary     : The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) library.
Description :
The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) provides audio and MIDI
functionality to the Linux operating system.

This package includes the ALSA runtime libraries to simplify application
programming and provide higher level functionality as well as support for
the older OSS API, providing binary compatibility for most OSS programs.

Update Information:

A flaw in the alsa mixer code was discovered, which disabled stack
execution protection for the libasound.so library distributed with
Fedora Core 3. The effect of this flaw resulted in stack execution
protection, through NX or Exec-Shield, which was disabled for any
application linked to libasound.

Updated version of alsa-lib package sorts out this problem.

- rebuilt

* Mon Jan 10 2005 Martin Stransky <stransky at redhat.com> 1.0.6-6.FC3
