Description Linda Wang 2005-09-01 22:20:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050512 Red Hat/1.0.4-1.4.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Heres Dell's rationale for this change:

Our OpenManage software stack needs to be able to test for the version
number of the driver, to know if it's sufficient for their use, or not. To that end, I need one more patch applied from my patchset, which changes
the version number from "v35" to "35.4". 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install RHEL3 kernel
2.watch kernel boot for IPMI version number
3.check /var/log/message

Actual Results:  version stated as v.35

Expected Results:  version stated as v.35.4

Additional info:

Comment 1 Ernie Petrides 2005-09-02 00:35:34 UTC
Note that the new version will be "35.4" (without the "v") and that the
kernel version this problem was reported on should be 2.4.21-35.EL.

The patch to resolve this is in bug 165467 comment #22.

This BZ still needs PM and QA acks.

Comment 2 Ernie Petrides 2005-09-02 19:22:44 UTC
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U6
patch pool this afternoon (in kernel version 2.4.21-36.EL).
