Advisory: RHBA-2013:0138-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated biosdevname packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The biosdevname packages contain an optional convention for naming network
interfaces; it assigns names to network interfaces based on their physical
location. Biosdevname is disabled by default, except for a limited set of Dell
PowerEdge, C Series, and Precision Workstation systems.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, biosdevname did not handle PCI cards with multiple ports properly.
Consequently, only the network interface of the first port of these cards was
renamed according to the biosdevname naming scheme. This bug has been fixed and
network interfaces of all ports of these cards are now renamed as expected.
(BZ#865446)

Users of biosdevname are advised to upgrade to these update packages, which fix
this bug.
