Details

An updated pciutils package that fixes a bug is now available.

The pciutils package contains various utilities for inspecting and
manipulating devices connected to the PCI bus.

This updated pciutils package fixes the following bug:

* the pciutils use PCILIB, a portable, platform-independent library, to
talk to PCI cards. By default PCILIB uses the first available access method
but switches can be used to control its behavior. The PCILIB AND ITS
OPTIONS section of the lspci man page lists two such switches (-H1 and -H2)
that did not work as documented.

The -H1 switch was listed as allowing "direct hardware access via Intel
configuration mechanism 1" and the -H2 switch as setting PCILIB to use
mechanism 2. In the previous pciutils release, however, using either switch
on AMD64 or Intel 64 architectures resulted in an "invalid option -- H"
error. (Note: the switches worked as expected on 32-bit x86 architectures).

This error was due to the pciutils package not enabling these switches when
compiled for 64-bit architectures. With this update the pciutils spec file
includes a corrected build script which enables these features for AMD64
and Intel 64 and, consequently, provides Intel configuration mechanism
support to 64-bit architectures as documented. (BZ#505557)

All pciutils users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves
this issue.
