An updated usbutils package that fixes several bugs and adds various enhancements is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The usbutils package contains utilities for inspecting devices connected to a USB bus.
The usbutils package has been upgraded to upstream version 003, which adds support for USB3 devices. Note: warning messages about short transfer on control endpoint and stalled endpoint can under circumstances be logged after the upgrade. This is the standard behavior of the xHCI driver and these messages can be safely ignored. This update also provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#725973, BZ#725096)
- Previously, when running the "lsusb -t" command in a KVM guest, the lsusb utility terminated with a segmentation fault. The utility has been modified and now lists USB devices correctly.
- The FILES item in the lsusb(8) manual page displayed an incorrect path to the usb.ids file. This path has been changed to the correct /usr/share/hwdata/usb.ids path.
All users of usbutils are advised to upgrade to this updated usbutils package, which fixes these bugs and adds these enhancements.
