    what this messages means? Maybe this is bug in kernel?
    P.S. My system works fine, without problems, but i worried about this messages…

  • confirm the same behavior, will search and report soon.

    I’m guessing its a kernel’s issue cause there’s 3.13.5 is out already with a bunch of bugfixes. someone else on arch forums has exactly the same problem.

  • I don’t think its anything to worry about. It’ll certainly be fixed upstream before you would experience any issues related to out of date microcodes

  • yep there’s new kernel 3.13.5 and linux-firmware in testing repo already.

  • Thanks, guys. After updating kernel to new version ( 3.13.5), my problem solved/ Thanks for answerings!

  • If you have an intel cpu then could you do me a favor please and check if you have intel-ucode installed, so if you do then uninstall it and try your system or you if don’t then install it and try your system.

  • What exactly you expecting to happen? I’ve always had intel-ucode installed

    this message to disappear “Direct firmware load failed with error -2” and maybe some other things
