Comment 3 Len Lawrence 2018-07-17 23:31:35 CEST
Updated microcode and rebooted OK.  Actually before installing the new kernel.
Running Mate on:
System:    Host: vega Kernel: 4.14.56-desktop-1.mga6 x86_64
CPU:       Quad core Intel Core i7-4790K (-HT-MCP-) speed/max: 4399/4400 MHz
Graphics:  NVIDIA GK104 [GeForce GTX 770]

All looks OK.

Comment 4 Morgan Leijström 2018-07-18 02:19:53 CEST
Two machines updated to all updates in all updates_testing repos
64 bit OK on my workstation: i7-2600K, Nvidia GTX750 (GM107) using proprietary driver GeForce 420 and later, BOINC, LVM on LUKS on SSD, no wifi.

2) 64 bit OK on laptop Thinkpad T60, CPU core2Duo T5600, ati RV515/M54 X1400, wifi AR5418. Resume from suspend and hibernation *) OK except wifi need to be reconnected manually :/  (regression)

*) using Fn+F4 and Fn+F12 respectively - Somehow the Plasma battery icon have gone missing and logout menu do not contain suspend nor hibernate any longer!

Comment 5 Thomas Andrews 2018-07-18 04:48:47 CEST
Real MBR hardware, Athlon X2, 8GB, nvidia 9800GT video, Atheros wifi. 64-bit Plasma system, using the server kernel.

Updated microcode, nonfree firmware, and server kernel in one operation. Packages all installed cleanly. Rebooted, tried all the usual suspects, no regressions noted.

Comment 6 Thomas Andrews 2018-07-18 14:20:37 CEST
Real hardware, HP 6550b, i3,8GB, Intel graphics, Intel wifi, 64-bit Plasma system, using the desktop kernel.

Performed the same tests as in Comment 5, with the same results.
Comment 7 James Kerr 2018-07-18 16:09:05 CEST
OK for mga6-64:

Comment 8 James Kerr 2018-07-19 16:53:59 CEST
Also OK for mga6-64 on an nvidia system

Comment 9 Len Lawrence 2018-07-19 19:49:45 CEST
System:    Host: markab Kernel: 4.14.50-desktop-2.mga6 x86_64
CPU:       Quad core Intel Core i7-5700HQ (-HT-MCP-) speed/max: 2695/3500 MHz
           Mobo: GIGABYTE model: X5
Graphics:  Card-1: NVIDIA GM204M [GeForce GTX 965M]
           GLX Version: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 390.59

Updated microcode and latest firmware.
Rebooted fine.  No problems evident.
Comment 10 James Kerr 2018-07-20 11:38:59 CEST
OK for mga6-32

Comment 11 Thomas Andrews 2018-07-20 14:08:50 CEST
Real hardware, Dell Inspiron 5100, P4, 1GB RAM, Radeon 7500 graphics, old Atheros wifi. Running 32-bit Plasma, using the VESA video driver because the radeon driver won't work with Plasma on this system.

Updated microcodes, nonfree firmware, and the desktop kernel all in one operation. Packages all installed cleanly. Reboot successful, no regressions noted.
Comment 12 Rémi Verschelde 2018-07-23 15:16:08 CEST
Tested OK on Mageia 6 x86_64, system described in bug 23316 comment 7.
