8.88. i2c-tools

Updated i2c-tools packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The i2c-tools packages contain a set of I2C tools for Linux: a bus probing tool, a chip dumper, register-level SMBus access helpers, EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) decoding scripts, EEPROM programming tools, and a python module for SMBus access.
Note: EEPROM decoding scripts can render your system unusable. Make sure to use these tools wisely.
This update fixes the following bug:

Bug Fix

BZ#914728
The i2cdetect utility requires the i2c-dev module to be loaded so that it can detect devices present on a specified bus. Previously, this was not done automatically, and as a consequence, the user could be mistaken that no buses or devices existed when running i2cdetect. With this update, i2c-dev has been made automatically-loadable. Now, i2cdetect correctly scans an I2C bus for devices and outputs a table with detected devices as expected.
Note: EEPROM decoding scripts can render your system unusable. Make sure to use these tools wisely.
Users of i2c-tools are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
