Involved Projects and Packages
Maintainer Bugowner

Debug and monitoring tool to inspect processor specific power management behavior. CPU frequency (P-states), processor sleep states (C-states) and other processor specific power management capabilities can be identified and analyzed.


flashrom is a universal flash programming utility for DIP, PLCC, or
SPI flash ROM chips. It can be used to flash BIOS/LinuxBIOS/firmware
images, for example.

Library to program and control the FTDI USB controller.
This library is used by many programs accessing FTDI USB-to-RS232 converters.

Maintainer Bugowner

Offers the possibility to inject Machine Check Exceptions(MCE)
for debugging and testing purposes of MCEs.
Related packages: mce-test and mcelog

Those tools provide a way to get Platform Reliability, Availability
and Serviceability (RAS) reports made via the Kernel tracing events.


The Linux Thermal Daemon program from


This project aims at providing some foo and bar.

It also does some weird stuff.

This project is linked to:
but does contain it's own 3.2 Django LTSS version (and possibly dependency downgrades needed for that).

This package contains the firmware for in-kernel drivers that was
previously included in the kernel. It is shared by all kernels >=


Kernel Dump Infrastructure

NOTE: Automatically created during Factory devel project migration by admin.

Fence Agents is a Python API for creating STONITH / fencing agents, as well as an extensive library of agents for different fencing devices and methods.

redfishtool is a commandline tool that implements the client side
of the Redfish RESTful API for Data Center Hardware Management.


The included tools share the same code as it is used in the ACPI
implementation of the kernel. The code of the acpica project is exactly
the same as the ACPI parser and interpreter code of the kernel and the
code gets synced regularly from the acpica project into the kernel.
E.g. if you identify bugs in the kernel's ACPI implementation it might
be easier to debug them in userspace if possible. If the bug is part of
the acpica code, it has to be submitted to the acpica project to get
merged into the mainline kernel sources.

iasl compiles ASL (ACPI Source Language) into AML (ACPI Machine
Language). This AML is suitable for inclusion as a DSDT in system
firmware. It also can disassemble AML, for debugging purposes.

Firescope allows to read remote kernel memory over a firewire
connection. On x86-64 it is normally used to read the kernel log

This tool, developed by Intel, is meant for vendors to validate and
certifcate their BIOS. It is also convenient for ACPI or general BIOS
related bugs. If you have an ACPI error/warning, run this tool and
provide output for bug tracking information
