microcode.ctl 1.17-13.1ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


microcode.ctl (1.17-13.1ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  [ Stefano Rivera ]
  * Merge from Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
    - debian/{templates,microcode.ctl.config}: Default to downloading
      microcode, and reduce the debconf priority on this question to medium.
      (LP: #604257)
    - Rewrote update-intel-microcode script to robustly parse and
      download updated microcode correctly (LP: #569488)
    - update-intel-microcode: Do not eval() code from the Internet, and use
      Python's built in tarfile library rather than a temporary directory.
    - debian/microcode.ctl.init: Depend on $remote_fs.

  [ Daniel J Blueman]
  * Fix failure to untar firmware from Intel, due to internal filename change
    (LP: #783239)

microcode.ctl: Intel IA32/IA64 CPU Microcode Utility

 The microcode_ctl utility is a companion to the IA32 microcode
  - it decodes and sends new microcode to the kernel driver for Intel IA32
    family (Pentium Pro, PII, Celeron, PIII, Xeon, Pentium 4, etc.) and
    Intel x86_64 family processors;
  - it signals the kernel driver to release any buffers it may hold.
 The microcode update does not permanently alter the CPU and must be
 performed each time the system is booted.
