Details

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

The ModemManager packages provide a consistent application programming interface
(API) to operate a wide variety of modems, including mobile broadband (3G)
devices.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, some broadband devices were not covered by the "udev" rules in the
/lib/udev/rules.d/77-mm-*.rules files. As a consequence, the broadband
connection was either not established at all, or failed after communicating a
few packages. Additional "udev" rules have been included to ensure that
ModemManager uses the correct serial port. As a result, more broadband devices,
such as ZTE, LG, and Sierra Wireless modems, are now supported. (BZ#883079)

Users of ModemManager are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.
