I apologize, but being on tablet, I do not noticed the code is bigger, thanks to that wonderful Material theme which does not show the slidebars.

Anyway, I think this script is better as a part of intel-microcode package.

Maybe this is more broadly useful on x86 hardware, but I personally haven't seen such cases (if they exist, then the remainder of this post is to be ignored), so I think this would be a good case for mozes to add a package to Slackware ARM which isn't in the x86 tree.

According to documentation, it is too late to load microcode as in post #216. Microcode must be loaded using early microcode update driver support in the kernel (if not possible via BIOS).

This. The old (Late) processor microcode reloading has issues. Don't use it.

Hi Rob,

I2C Tools is very useful for monitoring parameters on PC motherboards and embedded systems. Such as voltages, temperatures, fan speeds, etc. It can also be invaluable for troubleshooting I2C and SMBus issues. I'll grant you that it's perhaps more useful on sbc ARM devices, but I still believe there's many applications for it on x86 architecture and therefore a good thing to have available for any Slackware system.

According to that README you also need a kernel compiled with CONFIG_MICROCODE_EARLY, which is nowhere to be found in 4.14.

Don't get me wrong, I don't have a NIH syndrome - I'll give a warm welcome to any versatile, working and sustainable solution for loading CPU microcode updates in Slackware.

aaa_elflibs needs to be updated

following the update to mpfr and the bump in .so-version, the new version of libmpfr needs to be added to aaa_elflibs as gawk is used by the package management scripts.

It should be feasible to sed-ify the scripts filelist.awk, install-new.awk, cutpkg.awk and pkglist.awk instead.

Anyone?
