LXer: Firmware Updates LiveCD thanks to Revisor

Published at LXer:

One of the coolest tools to come out of the Fedora Project is Revisor, which makes it blindingly simple to create your own custom Linux distribution, where you get to choose the packages you wish to include. This week I've been playing with Revisor to generate a Dell Firmware Updates LiveCD. The result is a bootable LiveCD that lets you log in and run 'update_firmware' to flash your system to the latest BIOS on 282 Dell system types. [In a comment, Matt adds that hopefully it will get released on in the future. Nice work Dell. — Sander]
