Fedora Update Notification

Name        : freeradius
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 2.1.12
Release     : 2.fc15
URL         : http://www.freeradius.org/
Summary     : High-performance and highly configurable free RADIUS server
Description :
The FreeRADIUS Server Project is a high performance and highly configurable
GPL'd free RADIUS server. The server is similar in some respects to
Livingston's 2.0 server.  While FreeRADIUS started as a variant of the
Cistron RADIUS server, they don't share a lot in common any more. It now has
many more features than Cistron or Livingston, and is much more configurable.

FreeRADIUS is an Internet authentication daemon, which implements the RADIUS
protocol, as defined in RFC 2865 (and others). It allows Network Access
Servers (NAS boxes) to perform authentication for dial-up users. There are
also RADIUS clients available for Web servers, firewalls, Unix logins, and
more.  Using RADIUS allows authentication and authorization for a network to
be centralized, and minimizes the amount of re-configuration which has to be
done when adding or deleting new users.

Update Information:

F15 mounted /var/run as tmpfs which is wiped clean on a reboot
thus /var/run/radiusd which is created by the RPM install is absent.
Add /etc/tmpfiles.d/radiusd.conf to recreate directory on boot.

Upgrade to latest upstream release, 2.1.12. See RPM changelog for details.

    files.  See share/dictionary for explanations.

    duplicates are found.

    allows some clients to prompt the user for a new password.

  * Load the default virtual server before any others.
    This matches what users expect, and reduces confusion.

  * Definitive fix for bug #35, where the server could crash under
    certain loads.  Changes src/lib/packet.c to use RB trees.
  * Updated "configure" checks to allow IPv6 udpfromto on Linux.
  * SQL module now returns NOOP if the accounting start/interim/stop
    queries don't do anything.

  * home_server coa config now matches raddb/proxy.conf
  * Never send a reply to a DHCP Release.
