Linux gets the function everyone wants

Share on

An ACPI feature called "ACPI Platform Firmware Runtime Update and Telemetry" (PFRUT) "for Linux does something we all want.

Launched in January


And it is possible to update the UEFI and BIOS without having to restart the computer because the OS takes care of all the work. Quite stylish and hard to imagine: almost all hardware, possibly with the exception of certain Bluetooth devices, requires a reboot.

 

Intel has been working on the feature for a long time, and it is not surprisingly aimed at servers right now, and not gamers.

 

Implemented in Linux kernel 5.17
Supported server upgrades can provide almost 100 percent uptime and keep critical services running even during the update of the underlying system.

 

The driver update "pfr_update" comes in Linux kernel 5.17. Updates like this will mainly be to correct critical errors or improve security.

 

Because this is ACPI and Intel, and because both are on PC, this can get Windows it's the way.
