Updated dmidecode packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The dmidecode packages provide utilities for extracting x86 and Intel Itanium hardware information from the system BIOS or EFI, depending on the SMBIOS/DMI standard. This information typically includes system manufacturer, model name, serial number, BIOS version, and asset tag.

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, the dmidecode utility did not support the DDR4 type of memory. Consequently, compiling of the dmidecode code for hardware with DDR4 memory type gave out of specs results. With this update, dmidecode has been updated so that the DDR4 is among memory types and no longer returns out of specs while compiling the dmidecode source code.
Users of dmidecode are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
