Updated libvpd packages that add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The libvpd packages contain the classes that are used to access Vital Product Data (VPD) created by vpdupdate in the lsvpd package.
The libvpd packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.2.3, which provides a number of enhancements over the previous version. Specifically, the updated libvpd packages prevent segmentation faults from occurring when fetching the corrupted Vital Product Data (VPD) database. In addition, support for vpdupdate command automation has been added for cases of changes happening to device configuration on run time. During hot plugs, the changes made to the device configuration are now caught by an udev rule and are handled by libvpd correctly. (BZ#739122
Users of libvpd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add these enhancements.
