RHN Hosted HW info page for ppc64 server
Description of problem:
I have beaker-reserved RHEL6 installed through 20100610-s compose (there are both python-dmidecode and hal installed on that system) and registering the system on rhn.errata.stage bring just very limited set of info (attachment will follow below)
Also there is a debug line saying:
"D: Warnings collected during dmidecode import: No SMBIOS nor DMI entry point found, sorry." - actually the same line is thrown by python when there just importing the dmidecode package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2 from 2 attempts.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make PPC64 beaker reservation.
2. run rhn_register (with proper debugLevel set)
debug info in the console and up2date log, very limited set of HW info in RHN Hosted.
Full (as much as possible) HW info reported to Hosted.
Attachment of the "Hardware" page will follow
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
The debug message
"D: Warnings collected during dmidecode import: No SMBIOS nor DMI entry point
is expected (ppc systems indeed do not have any smbios).
Is the problem you're reporting a regression compared to RHEL-5?
will be checking against RHEL5 to see the difference.
but it would be nice seeing more information on HW page of the system rather than now it is.
checked against installation of RHEL5 - almost the same picture is there - so if there is no chance to improve the information available for ppc64 - consider the issue closed.
attached is the info for RHEL5
