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.

Bug Fixes

BZ#704079
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#555303
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.
All users of hal are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
