The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

- Tue Jan 9 2007 Adam Jackson <ajax at redhat.com>
1.0.1-9.fc5.6

- xorg-xserver-1.0.1-dbe-render.diff: CVE #2006-6101.

- Fri Jun 30 2006 Mike A. Harris <mharris at redhat.com>
1.0.1-9.fc5.5

- Standardize on using lowercase 'fcN' in Release field
to denote the OS release the package is being built
for in all erratum from now on, as this is the
official Fedora packaging guideline recommended way
that the new 'dist' tag uses:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DistTag. (#197266)

- Remove various rpm spec file macros from the changelog
which were inadvertently added over time. (#197281)

- Mon Jun 26 2006 Mike A. Harris <mharris at redhat.com>
1.0.1-9.FC5.4

- Updated build dependency to require
mesa-source-6.4.2-6.FC5.3 minimum for DRI enabled
builds to fix numerous bug reports on x86_64 including
(#190245, 185929,187603,185727,189730)

- Added xorg-x11-server-1.0.1-setuid.diff to fix setuid
bug (#196126)

- Bump xtrans dependency to '>= 1.0.0-3.2.FC5.0' for
setuid fix in xtrans.

- Added 'BuildRequires: freetype-devel >= 2.1.9-1,
zlib-devel' so that the package will build now in
brew/mock for erratum.

- Fri May 19 2006 Mike A. Harris <mharris at redhat.com>
1.0.1-9.FC5.3

- Enable alpha, sparc, sparc64 architectures to be
buildable (untested, but feel free to submit patches
in bugzilla if it does not work right)

- Add missing SBUS header for sparc architecture (#187357)

- Fri May 5 2006 Mike A. Harris <mharris at redhat.com>
1.0.1-9.fc5.2

- Merge
xorg-x11-server-1.0.1-render-tris-CVE-2006-1526.patch
security fix from 1.0.1-9.fc5.1.1 release from
embargoed branch of CVS to FC-5 branch.
