Description Enrico Scholz 2003-03-04 16:16:35 UTC
Description of problem:

/etc/init.d/microcode_ctl is executed very early in the boot-process but
executes commands located under /usr/bin

|        vendor=`cat /proc/cpuinfo | \
|            grep "^vendor_id" | head -1 | \
|        ...

When /usr is mounted via NFS, the 'head' command will not be found.

I suggest to use "sed -e '2,$d'" instead of "head -1".
