s390-tools-1.3.2-april2004.tar.gz / MD5 recommended (superseded) (2004-09-23)

Added new tool/feature:

This package contains the following bug fix:

dasdfmt, dasdview, fdasd: Several dasd tools overwrite memory, since allocated buffers are too small.
Running fdasd, dasdfmt, and dasdview results in segmentation violations in certain error situations. This was detected by the BEAM tool that does some bound checking.
Allocated buffers that are used to write to by sprintf are too small.
Increase buffer size and use snprintf instead of sprintf.

Note: Because of missing kernel-interfaces the following s390-tools from 1.3 will not work with the "August 2001 stream": start_hsnc/ip-watcher, osasnmpd, qetharp, and qethconf.

SCSI IPL and dump:
To be able to use SCSI ipl and dump (zipl/zfcpdump) appropriate enablement microcode (FC9904) is required.
SCSI IPL for Linux as a VM-guest requires z/VM Version 4 Release 4 (PTF UM30989 installed) or higher.
