8.119. ModemManager

Updated ModemManager packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The ModemManager packages provide a consistent application programming interface (API) to operate a wide variety of modems, including mobile broadband (3G) devices.

Bug Fix

Previously, some broadband devices were not covered by the "udev" rules in the /lib/udev/rules.d/77-mm-*.rules files. As a consequence, the broadband connection was either not established at all, or failed after communicating a few packages. Additional "udev" rules have been included to ensure that ModemManager uses the correct serial port. As a result, more broadband devices, such as ZTE, LG, and Sierra Wireless modems, are now supported.
Users of ModemManager are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
