Subject: 
memtest86+ -5.01-2.AXS4
Affected Channels: 
Asianux Server 4 for x86_64
Asianux Server 4 for x86
Severity: 
N/A
Description: 

Memtest86 is a thorough stand-alone memory test for x86 and x86-64
architecture computers. BIOS based memory tests are only a quick
check and often miss many of the failures that are detected by
Memtest86 .

The ELF version should be used for booting from grub,
and avoids the following errors:
"Error 7: Loading below 1MB is not supported"
"Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format"
"Error 28: Selected item cannot fit into memory"

The script '/usr/sbin/memtest-setup' can be run (as root)
to add the memtest86 entry to your GRUB boot menu.

Enhancements:

* The memtest86+ package has been upgraded to upstream version 5.01, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements
over the previous version. Notable changes include the following:
Support for up to 2 TB of RAM on AMD64 and Intel 64 CPUs
Support for new Intel and AMD CPUs, for example Intel Haswell
Experimental SMT support up to 32 cores

Fixed bugs:
* Fixed memtest86+ binary (non-ELF) to run from floppy disk
* Fixed memtest-setup to support --help argument
* Added distribution specific README file

Solution: 

Update packages.
