Yang, please confirm two things:

1. The manpage says it should be "manufacturer", but in your command line you used "manufacture". Please double check if it's a typo or not.

2. What's the behavior in RHEL6.2? (in other words, is it a regression?)

Comment 3 Gleb Natapov 2012-04-03 04:17:45 EDT
Checked the code and it expects "manufacturer". Closing the bug. If still reproducible with correct command line then reopen it.
