Details

An updated rdma package that fixes a bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 6.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux includes a collection of InfiniBand and iWARP
utilities, libraries, and development packages for writing applications that use
Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) technology.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3, the kernel created the
InfiniBand device files in the wrong place and a udev rules file was used to
force the devices to be created in the proper place. With the update to 6.3,
the kernel was fixed to create the InfiniBand device files in the proper place,
and so the udev rules file was removed as no longer being necessary. However, a
bug in the kernel device creation meant that, although the devices were now
being created in the right place, they had incorrect permissions. Consequently,
when users attempted to run an RDMA application as a non-root user, the
application failed to get the necessary permissions to use the RDMA device and
the application terminated. This update puts a new udev rules file in place. It
no longer attempts to create the InfiniBand devices since they already exist,
but it does correct the device permissions on the files. (BZ#860943)

Users of rdma are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this
bug.
