Details

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

The efibootmgr utility is responsible for the boot loader installation on
Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) systems.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, when an invalid value was passed to the "efibootmgr -o" command,
the command did not recognize the problem and passed the incorrect value to
other functions. This could have lead to several complications such as commands
becoming unresponsive. With this update, efibootmgr has been modified to test
for invalid input. As a result, an error message is displayed in the
aforementioned scenario. (BZ#924892)

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