Recommended update for pdsh

SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for pdsh
Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2020:1041-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1167704
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for HPC 12

An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.


This update for pdsh fixes the following issues:

  • Define %%make_build for all products that support it.

  • Update to version pdsh-2.34 (2020-01-07) (bsc#1167704) * Fix for output corruption with no newlines * pipecmd: fix result check error handling * slurm: workaround slurm export of internal List interfaces * readline: add application name as argv[0] * Fix errors from scan

  • Change 'typedef List' to 'typedef xList'. Since SLURM exposes a type List in its public API without proper namespacing we need to change this type in pdsh. To remain compatible with older versions of SLURM whose type List was identical to pdsh's we need to rename not only the struct.
