    i'm guessing since the patches are on the itrc, they're gr'd.

    i'd sure like to know why they're not stageable! - d

    Hello Friends,

    HP was good enough to give me about two hours' head start on learning
    about these patches, so what follows is based on an interview today
    at 10 AM Central.

    1. Craig Fairchild said these patches are stageable. But they do
    require a reboot, at the least.

    2. He also said that this sort of BINARY PATCH is something HP will
    continue to develop through the end of 2010. This, in reply to my
    specific question, "This is the kind of thing HP will not develop
    after 2008, correct?"

    Earlier, HP said that it would end its patch development altogether
    after December of 2008. The binaries are the exception, according to
    HP.

    I have a more complete article on the NewsWire's blog, posted just as
    HP made the news public.

    Look for the follow up piece tomorrow, and the podcast with
    commentary on Friday!

    almost...sorta....kinda....

    MILNX10A is NOT stageable because it requires a installation job.
    imo, this patch is best/fastest/most easily installed by using
    'autopat'. autopat, at it's conclusion, will say 'stream
    this.job'....which you do....and a couple of blinks
    later....milli.lib.sys (and friends) is joyfully updated.

    otoh, MPENX11A is stageable and is the patch that requires a reboot.
    this time, use patch/ix to get this patch staged and schedule a
    reboot.

    dig out your notes about how to download patches. pay attention when
    you run 'unpackp' and the rest is all pretty easy. - d
