4.45. DeviceKit-power

Updated DeviceKit-power packages that add two enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
DeviceKit-power provides a daemon, API and command line tools for managing power devices attached to the system.


To allow administrators easily disable the suspend and hibernate actions on the system, DeviceKit-power now checks the PolicyKit authorization before deciding whether an action can be completed.
This update introduces a new sub-package DeviceKit-power-devel-docs, which contains developer's documentation for DeviceKit-power, so that it is now possible to install the DeviceKit-power-devel package on machines with multiple architectures without file conflicts.
All users are advised to upgrade to these updated DeviceKit-power packages, which add these enhancements.
