Summary0001344: Wrong install instruction for the root cert for Red Hat Linux.
DescriptionOn the page http://wiki.cacert.org/FAQ/ImportRootCert#Linux
is written:
Red Hat 5+: wget -O - http://www.cacert.org/certs/root.txt >> /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt (this will be overridden by updated openssl RPMs so it is likely not the best method)

Red Hat 4: Change the above location of ca-bundle.crt to /usr/share/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt

Fedora: Copy the certificate to /etc/pki/ca-trust/source/anchors/ then run update-ca-trust extract

But this is wrong, because
- RHEL 4 is deprecated an only supported under very special terms.
- for RHEL generation 7 the same instruction as for Fedora shut be used.
- The correct call for Fedora is "update-ca-trust" instant "update-ca-trust extract".

No, because all pathses for the cert files description in it, are wrong.
On Red Hat based systems certificates for will live at /etc/pki/tls/
