2.15.  RHEA-2009:1315: libpciaccess

A new libpciaccess package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The libpciaccess library provides simple access to information about PCI devices and their configuration. This library works across multiple operating systems and is utilized by the libhbalinux library. On Linux, libpciaccess uses either the sysfs virtual file system or the /dev/mem device to communicate with PCI devices.
This libpciaccess package is new to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. (BZ#496211)
All users requiring libpciaccess should install this newly-released package, which adds this enhancement.
