that one was fixed in 20230214 release in:
Turns out officially this is not a security update after all, only a functional one...
Intel has updated their info to state so:
AMD Ryzen 5 5600, GeForce GTX 1050
Installed and rebooted. No issues found for my usage scenarios. Working as expected.
Foolishness, my old Dell Inspiron 5100, 32-bit P4 processor, 32-bit Xfce. Far removed from Gen7, but the update installed cleanly, and I see no ill effects after the reboot.
Normally these types of updates wait for TMB to give the OK and validate, but this one hasn't shown any problems, and hasn't seen any new tests in several days. I'm sending it on. If this is a problem, please reverse the validation.
An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.
