A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

B.77. python-gudev

An updated python-gudev package that fixes a bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Python-gudev is one of the core components for Red Hat Network (RHN) registration process.
Bug Fix
Under some circumstances, using the 'rhn_register' command to register a system with the Red Hat Network (RHN) might fail. When this issue is encountered, the 'rhn_register' command will return an error similar to:
# rhn_register
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
# rhn_register
***MEMORY-ERROR***: rhn_register[11525]: GSlice: assertion failed:
sinfo->n_allocated > 0
Aborted (core dumped)
With this update, the aforementioned errors are no longer returned and using the 'rhn_register' command works as expected.
All users of python-gudev are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
