I'd like to get some feedback from AMD cpu users on this update. I've restructured and undone a few things that may have been keeping folks using this port from getting their runtime cpu microcode updates. After installing the port, grab your microcode version via sysutils/x86info. If you don't see an update, that only means there is no update available for your system. x86info -a | grep Microcode Run the microcode_update and repeat. Check /var/log/messages for a notification that the code was updated. You should be able to get something like the following for your system if it executed an update: root@lab:/home/sbruno # x86info -a | grep "CPU Model" CPU Model (x86info's best guess): AMD FX Series Processor (OR-B2) root@lab:/home/sbruno # x86info -a | grep Microcode Microcode patch level: 0x6000629 root@lab:/home/sbruno # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/microcode_update onestart Updating CPU Microcode...
