   SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for perl-Bootloader

Announcement ID:    SUSE-RU-2012:1410-2
Rating:             moderate
References:         #775183 #776915 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1 LTSS
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1

   An update that has two recommended fixes can now be
   installed. It includes one version update.


   This update for perl-Bootloader resolves the following

   * When using CCISS or similar RAID controller updating
   may break the bootloader configuration by changing (hd0, 0)
   to (hd0) in menu.lst (bnc#776915)
   * Bootloader configuration with serial lines may put
   'serial' and 'terminal' entries into menu.lst in the wrong
   order (bnc#775183).

   As this update fixes a severe regression over the last
   update for regular  SLES 11 SP1 customers, SUSE is also
   providing this update for non Long Term  Service Pack
   Support subscribers.
