Description

LSAC(v2)
The syslinux packages provide a utility, which is responsible for booting the operating system kernel. This update fixes the following bugs: * Prior to this update, the syslinux utility used an inappropriate timeout value. As a consequence, the timeout took longer than expected. This update modifies the underlying code to remove this limitation. Now, syslinux timeouts work as expected. (BZ#471067) * Prior to this update, the syslinux-perl package contained unresolved Perl dependencies. As a consequence, syslinux-perl failed to build. This update modifies the underlying code to resolve these dependencies. Now, syslinux-perl builds as expected. (BZ#844250) All users of syslinux are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
