Description Arjan van de Ven 2006-11-07 12:02:36 EST
Description of problem:

the microcode.dat file as shipped is about a year old. Since the program isn't
actually changing, maybe the .dat file should just move to the hwdata package or
something, so that it can be updated async....

I see it was updated in CVS:

* Mon Jul  2 2007 Dave Jones <davej@redhat.com>
- Update to upstream 1.17

Any chance of an errata release for F7?
Comment 3 Jon Masters 2007-08-20 02:28:55 EDT
This kind of fell through the cracks in the Fedora merge. I updated CVS, then
davej did, then...I am not sure of the errata process in Fedora now, but I will
try to find out what needs doing :-)

Argh. I still need to do this one.
Comment 5 Jane Lv 2008-02-27 02:13:23 EST
The current microcode on FC9-Alpha is 1.17.

This has been updated a while ago.
