Package name ldetect
Date April 24th, 2003
Advisory ID MDKA-2003:005
Affected versions 9.0, 9.1, CS2.1
Synopsis Updated ldetect packages fix system freeze

Problem Description

Previous ldetect packages could freeze systems when harddrake
probed for PCI information on the computer. This only occured
rarely on some systems, when reading too much data from the PCI
configuration space would result in a freeze of the system.

This has been fixed in the ldetect engine by not buffering such
reads, and only to read as many bytes as required from the PCI
configuration space as exported by the kernel in/proc/bus/pci/*/*.
