1.82.1.  RHBA-2009:0277: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:0277
An updated hwbrowser package that fixes a bug is now available.
Hwbrowser is a browser for the current hardware configuration.
This updated package contains the following bug fix:
  • both hal-device-manager and hwbrowser used the same name ("Hardware") in the System>Administration menu, as well as the same icon (hwbrowser.png). The existence of two apparently identical entries in the menu that launch two different applications could be confusing to users. Since hwbrowser is now a legacy tool, it no longer creates a menu item upon installation, thus eliminating the potential confusion. Users can still run hwbrowser from the command line.
Users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
