Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 497711
No x86 package built for microcode_ctl-1.17-1.47.fc11.1
Last modified: 2009-06-15 21:52:09 EDT
Description of problem:
The latest build of microcode_ctl only provides an x86_64 package whereas a corresponding i586 package is missing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute 'yum install microcode_ctl' on some i586 system.
YUM returns that no such package is available.
YUM install microcode_ctl.i586
- The previous F10 build provides both x86 and x86_64 subpackages.
- No indication about dropping support for the x86 flavour can be found in
the package's changelog.
The latest build microcode_ctl-1.17-1.49.fc12 is still missing an i586 subpackage. Is there a reason for this omission?
I have installed microcode_ctl-1.17-1.46.fc10.i386 on a current "rawhide" system, and according to the system log, the CPU microcode is actually successfully updated to the latest version provided by INTEL.
Adding Dave J.
the specfile has an exclusivearch for 'i386', which is why a build never happened.
It should be built on 686. I'll push it out.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Rebuilt for i586 on F-11 and devel/.
microcode_ctl-1.17-1.51.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
