Well do you have one of those processors? You can easily update your microcode https://wiki.archlin...codeÃ‚ Ã‚
Although, you shouldn't have to it very often as they only come out once a blue moon.
Yup I got one of them there fancy shmancy cpu's an it is a 94/3 so I will be affected.
I followed the wiki when I set up and it looks like I have a "intel-ucode.img" in my EFI folder.
I was just a little confused as to if the new update will be included with the Arch updates as the Debian info says to do a manual update.
I can not follow the wikis advice to try and run iucode-tool as it will not install,
Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
iucode-tool_2.1.2.tar.xz ... FAILED (unknown public key FE11BFA68B158E98)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!
:: failed to verify iucode-tool integrity
I am also having some slight problems with refind. The only way I can get the pc to boot at the moment is with this line in my refind_linux,conf,
"Boot with standard options" "ro root=/dev/nvme0n1p4"
I have tried several different ways to alter this line. Following advice from the forums where a similar problem was solved by this type of entry,
"Boot with standard options" "ro root=/dev/nvme0n1p4 initrd=/boot/intel-ucode.img initrd=/boot/initramfs-linux.img"
which seems to me to be in line with the information from the refind home page and the advice on the wiki.
However this does not work for me. I have "ro" but the wiki gives "rw" don't know if that makes a difference, and the wiki also has "quiet" which I do not have, but I do not think that they make a difference to booting.
So I am in a bit of a pickle. Been meaning to sort out the booting issue but got caught up with Steam and monsters in the metro
Thoughts help advice a fix would be most appreciated.
Oh an I ain't swapping out refind for anything else. I done too much reading up to can it now. Plus I am a stubborn son of a ********
