Description Stephen John Smoogen 2004-04-11 18:06:38 EDT
Description of problem:

After upgrading to the kernel-utils-2.4-8.37.1 update for U2 Beta, all
my machines are getting the following error:

[smooge@bake_neko smooge]$ dmesg | grep micro
microcode: error! Bad data in microcode data file
microcode: Error in the microcode data
[smooge@bake_neko smooge]$ ssh root@kosh

[root@kosh root]# dmesg | grep micro
microcode: error! Bad data in microcode data file
microcode: Error in the microcode data
[root@kosh root]# rpm -q kernel-utils
kernel-utils-2.4-8.37.1


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-utils-2.4-8.37.1

How reproducible:
100% on several models of Pentium II/III machines. [I dont have any IV
running RHEL-3]

I am guessing it is either corrupted from Intel or broken from Intel.

Stephen [This bug is similar to 120573 but a different product line.]

This is identical to my bugreport 120573.
It's U2 there, too.
The kernel-utils version is identical to U1 to it has to do with the
packages I upgraded to U2, namely kernel, glibc and nptl.
