util-linux-2.9h.  This is built for upgrading to the Linux 2.2 series
kernels and should work under Red Hat 5.0, 5.1, and 5.2 but were compiled
under a relatively stock Red Hat 5.2 system with Kernel 2.2.1.

Summary     : Collection of basic system utilities for Linux
Description :
util-linux contains a large variety of low-level system utilities
necessary for a functional Linux system.  This includes, among other
things, configuration tools such as fdisk and system programs such
as login.

This package replaces all of util-linux, mount, fdisk (if installed as a
seperate package), lptune, and losetup.  It also contains all the
documentation included with the original tar.gz file.

and the changelog:

  instead of nulls.
