David, any idea what might be causing this error? Thanks.
Comment 4 David Sommerseth 2010-04-20 07:16:07 EDT
Created attachment 407791 [details] Patch fixing the assert() issue I've found the error and have gotten the fix pushed upstream. I've moved this bug over to python-dmidecode, as this is where the error was. I'll prepare a new python-dmidecode package for RHEL5.5 and RHEL6 when a new release comes - which should be rather soon. Attached a patch with the fix itself.

Upstream patch for the SEGV fault is accepted and python-dmidecode-3.10.13 was released yesterday. Awaiting packaging of new version. That package will fix both this issue and the SEGV issue.
