Description Ray Spartz 2012-06-06 12:02:21 EDT
Description of problem:
The URL that is advertised in the package info no longer exists:



Search this site
Page not found

We're sorry, but we were unable to locate the page you requested.


For various reasons I chose to terminate the existing web/file hosting for urbanmyth.org in 2012, so if you're after some specific information then I'd suggest emailing me to see if I retained it or use one of the web caches (nothing stays deleted on the internet...)

Best of luck!

It appears the maintainer has recently bailed on this sites hosting, yet it remains the advertised site for the upstream source:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name        : microcode_ctl
Arch        : x86_64
Epoch       : 1
Version     : 1.17
Release     : 20.fc16

How reproducible: Very

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just go to the URL http://www.urbanmyth.org/microcode/

From the man page:
       Report bugs to either Simon Trimmer <simon@urbanmyth.org> or  Tigran  Aivazian

It's possible the other maintainer has the source ??

Thanks for bringing to attention. Tigran was responsible and actually maintained sources. I will reach him soon on this issue.

Comment 3 Anton Arapov 2012-07-25 04:55:43 EDT
New microcode_ctl home will be there - http://fedorahosted.org/microcode_ctl

I will update the .spec and the page within 2 weeks.

Anton - Sounds good about the update. Since I was finally able to download the code I happened to read the README file and there is a reference to the old site and email in that file as well:

>>> getting Intel microcode

This package has a file called microcode.dat containing Intel microcode,
normally this file will be installed as /etc/microcode.dat

Intel IA32 microcode updates will be hosted on this utility's web page:

Just wanted to mention it so you would not have to go back and make another change.

Thank you.
