Name        : facter
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 1.6.6
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://www.puppetlabs.com/puppet/related-projects/facter/
Summary     : Command and ruby library for gathering system information
Description :
Facter is a lightweight program that gathers basic node information about the
hardware and operating system. Facter is especially useful for retrieving
things like operating system names, hardware characteristics, IP addresses, MAC
addresses, and SSH keys.

Facter is extensible and allows gathering of node information that may be
custom or site specific. It is easy to extend by including your own custom
facts. Facter can also be used to create conditional expressions in Puppet that
key off the values returned by facts.

Update Information:

This is a minor upstream bugfix release.  Refer to the upstream release notes for changes:


(Note that the previous facter packages already included the "arp -an" fix for EC2 facts in Fedora/EPEL.)

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update facter' at the command line.
For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum",
available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.

All packages are signed with the Fedora Project GPG key.  More details on the
GPG keys used by the Fedora Project can be found at
