An updated rhel-guest-image package that fixes two bugs is now available for RedHat Enterprise Linux 6.

The rhel-quest-image package provides a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 KVM GuestImage for cloud instances. This image is provided as a minimally configuredsystem image that is available for use as-is, or for configuration andcustomization as required by end users.This update fixes the following bugs:* The /dev/console device previously printed its output to the tty0 consoleinstead of the ttyS0 serial console as expected. To resolve this problem,rhel-guest-image has been modified to swap output ordering of the tty0 and ttyS0consoles. (BZ#1099462)* The guest image provided by rhel-guest-image did not allow online resizing ofthe initial root file system (rootfs).
