Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
On some hardware, the DMI tables contain data which makes python-dmidecode generate XML tags with duplicated "dmispec" attributes. In some cases, when running the XML data through xmllint or other XML libraries, it failed to parse the data. This update corrects the duplicate "installed" and "dmispec" attributes, and data parsing no longer fails in the described scenario.
