Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 440112
replace buggy microcode version with 20080401
Last modified: 2008-04-03 10:40:04 EDT
It was just discovered that some buggy microcode fragments were mistakenly
included in the last version Red Hat pulled into 4.7. Intel is posting a new
version to downloadcenter.intel.com (search for "processor microcode", pick some
recent processor, select Linux). The version should be 20080401.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Created attachment 299964 [details]
updated microcode from 4/1/08
The intel.com site seems slow to update, so here's the file.
The buggy version can cause a hang when the microcode is loaded on Xeon boxes
with family 15, model 2, stepping 2, and family 15, model 1, stepping 1.
Update prepared locally, pending mgt. approval.
Changes committed and built. However, we're just going to handle this under the
original 4.7 microcode update bug.
