Hello All,

I thought I should point out a simple fix to the inventory_firmware_gui
command from the dell_ft_install package.

A fresh install reports:
# inventory_firmware_gui
No handlers could be found for logger "trace.firmwaretools"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/inventory_firmware_gui", line 939, in main
    test = InventoryFirmware(base)
  File "/usr/sbin/inventory_firmware_gui", line 142, in __init__
  File "/usr/sbin/inventory_firmware_gui", line 317, in
    if self.inv_name[pkg_type] == 1 and self.inv_ver[device.version] == 1:

If I add this at line 301, all is well:
         pkg_type = ""

in /usr/sbin/inventory_firmware_gui
