7.44. edac-utils

Updated edac-utils packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The edac-utils packages contain Error Detection And Correction (EDAC), the current set of drivers in the Linux kernel that handles detection of ECC errors from memory controllers for most chipsets on the 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. The user-space component consists of an init script which ensures that EDAC drivers and Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) labels are loaded at system startup, as well as a library and utility for reporting current error counts from the EDAC sysfs files.

Bug Fix

Previously, the libsysfs packages were not listed as a dependency for the edac-utils packages. As a consequence, on systems where the libsysfs packages were not installed independently, the edac-utils packages were not fully functional due to the lack of libraries provided by libsysfs. This update adds libsysfs to the list of dependencies for edac-utils. As a result, libsysfs can be automatically installed together with edac-utils, thus providing all the libsysfs libraries necessary for edac-utils to work properly on all systems.
Users of edac-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
