Suse Linux SP2 hwinfo: braille.4.2: alva read data freezes

I ran the command hwinfo and waited a long time seeing this message

root@suselinux10sp2:~ # hwinfo
> braille.4.2: alva read data

I checked the hwinfo package

root@suselinux10sp2:~ # rpm -qi hwinfo

And the distribution that I was using

root@suselinux10sp2:~ # cat /etc/*release

Then I’ve updated the package hwinfo with the one on the Suse Linux 10 SP4 ISO – hwinfo-12.67-0.7.21.x86_64.rpm

root@suselinux10sp2 # rpm -U hwinfo-12.67-0.7.21.x86_64.rpm
