Bug Fix Advisory hal bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0107-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated hal packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

The HAL daemon collects and maintains information about the hardware on the
system from several sources, and provides a live device list through D-BUS.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Previously, the HAL daemon sometimes identified a non-existent error when
running a new process and displayed the following warning:

Warning: Error while wite r->input () to stdin_v.

This bug has been fixed and the HAL daemon now works properly in the
described scenario. (BZ#704079)

* The previous version of the hal package did not provide a manual page for the
hal-device utility. This update adds the hal-device(1) manual page to this
package. (BZ#555303)

All users of hal are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
these bugs.
