Pinned topic The question of lsmcode command

‏2012-11-30T07:24:36Z |
 I installed yellow dog Linux on PowerLinux 7R2.
And I would like to investigate a firmware version. But I can not get in lsmcode command.

Which address do I access for me to acquire a firmware version?

     The lsmcode command is provided by 'lsvpd' package.  If that is not available with your distribution,  you could try one of the options below :
     
    1) Install from IBM PowerYUM repository.IBM YUM repository supports RHEL5, RHEL6, SLES10 and SLES 11. If your distribution is closer to one of the supported versions, you could install the packages from the corresponding version.
     
     http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/lopdiags/
    2) Build it from sources, which are available at :
     
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/linux-diag/files/
     
    You would require the following packages for building lsvpd from source -> librtas, libvpd, sqlite3, ibsgutils 
     
    Do remember to run 'vpdupdate' command to create the VPD data base for your machine, whenever there is a change.

    Sorry for the late reply.

    'lsvpd' package was installed by the default.
    However, lsvpd packages was old. (version:1.6.7-2)

    When we installed lsvpd-1.6.10-5 in Yellow Dog Linux, Firmware Version was displayed in lsmcode command.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    Thanks,
