28491E1505, SUSE 10.1 and Dell bios update
- Oct 28, 2006Hi,
I have an E1505 with the A02 BIOS version. I would like to update it to
the latest (A09) and was wondering if there are any of you out there who
have successfully done so on SUSE. I have installed libsmbios (so I have
the dellBiosUpdate utility) and I have loaded the dell_rbu driver.
However, the update utility fails with "Could not open Dell RBU driver."
After some digging around (especially
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/dell_rbu.txt), I think it's because my
/sys/class/firmware directory doesn't have a dell_rbu subdirectory. Does
that mean I have the wrong driver? Can anyone shed some light please?
