View Full Version : [ubuntu] Update Manager Spurious Update File

June 23rd, 2009, 08:57 PM
I have just been checking my Update Manager, and one of the updates is this.

Update is called 'File' 'Determines file type using "magic" numbers'

Changes is;

Version 4.26-2ubuntu4:

* 220-magic-update-erlang.dpatch: Escape spaces in Erlang magic to avoid
misidentifications, particularly PostScript files produced on Tuesdays
(LP: #248619).


Starting with version 4, the file command is not much more than a wrapper around the "magic" library.

I am reluctant to run updates on this system without checking, am I being over cautious?
