mpss support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7

mpss support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7

I am planning on upgrading to RHEL 7. Is there a target date for supporting mpss on RHEL 7? 

Otherwise would it be possible to have an early access to mpss for RHEL 7?

Hi Anwar,

The next release of MPSS (3.3) will support RHEL 7.0 . This should happen very soon, please stay tuned. Thank you.

Greats news! Looking forwards to this. Thanks.


Ok- mpss-3.3 outed. I don't see any support for rhel7 ?

MPSS 3.3 has support for RHEL 7.0 . You just need to download mpss-3.3-linux.tar and follow the instructions in Section 2.2 of the document readme.txt . Thank you.


Updated my new RHEL 7.0 workstation with mpss 3.3. Everything works fine except when I try to update the flash as explained in step 2.4 of readme.txt:

sudo /usr/bin/micflash -update -device all -smcbootloader

No image path specified - Searching: /usr/share/mpss/flash
mic0: Flash image: /usr/share/mpss/flash/EXT_HP2_C0_0390-02.rom.smc
micflash: mic0: No compatible SMC boot-loader image found




In the readme file it said: "If using C0 stepping,  or 5110P B1 SKUs with a TA of G65758-253 or higher, or if the SMC boot loader version is 1.8, ........"

In your case, since your coprocessor is C0 stepping, you just use this command instead:

sudo /usr/bin/micflash -update -device all

Thank you.

@loc-nguyen, thanks that worked!
