    Hi,
    since i upgraded to kernel 2.4.25 i get the following log-entries when i
    start microcode_ctl:

    Mar 26 07:34:50 www kernel: microcode: collect_cpu_info : sig=0xf29, pf=0x2,
    rev=0x0
    Mar 26 07:34:50 www last message repeated 3 times
    Mar 26 07:34:50 www kernel: microcode: error! Bad data in microcode data
    file
    Mar 26 07:34:50 www kernel: microcode: Error in the microcode data

    what does this mean? /etc/firmware/microcode.dat is the most recent version.
    We've got many hardware problems on this server (dropping connections every
    20 Minutes). We also had these problems while running on kernel 2.4.22 and
    microcode_ctl doing fine (without the errors mentioned above).

    thanks in advance
    Gernot

    I'm running the following system:

    Dual Xeon 3GHz MSI: MS-9214
    Lan: 2 INTEL Dual Gigabit LAN (82546EB)

    fedora 1 with kernel-smp-2.4.25
