8.34. efibootmgr

Updated efibootmgr packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The efibootmgr utility is responsible for the boot loader installation on Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) systems.

Bug Fix

Previously, when an invalid value was passed to the "efibootmgr -o" command, the command did not recognize the problem and passed the incorrect value to other functions. This could have lead to several complications such as commands becoming unresponsive. With this update, efibootmgr has been modified to test for invalid input. As a result, an error message is displayed in the aforementioned scenario.
Users of efibootmgr are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
