8.65. hwdata

An updated hwdata package that fixes one bug and adds various enhancements is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The hwdata package contains tools for accessing and displaying hardware identification and configuration data.

Bug Fix

BZ#989142
Previously, certain information about the Red Hat Virtio Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) device was missing from the pci.ids database. Consequently, when using the lspci utility, the device name was not shown correctly and the numeric device ID was shown instead. With this update, the pci.ids database has been modified to provide correct information as expected.

Enhancements

BZ#982659
The PCI ID numbers have been updated for the Beta and the Final compose lists.
BZ#739838
With this update, the pci.ids database has been updated with information about AMD FirePro graphic cards.
BZ#948121
With this update, the pci.ids database has been updated with information about the Cisco VIC SR-IOV Virtual Function with the usNIC capability.
All users of hwdata are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug and adds these enhancements.
