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

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.


The PCI ID numbers have been updated for the Beta and the Final compose lists.
With this update, the pci.ids database has been updated with information about AMD FirePro graphic cards.
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.
