New!! Updated Intel(r) AMT Linux Drivers

Linux/AMT Developers have no doubt been waiting a long time for this.  Updated MEI and LMS drivers for Linux.  They can be download  HERE.  (and below as well)

Are you a Linux Developer interested in writing tools for supporting Intel AMT?  We would love to hear from you.

Here is what these drivers do:

Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) Linux support includes two components that allow interaction between the Intel® AMT FW and the Linux OS: Intel® MEI (Intel® Management Engine Interface) driver and LMS (Local Management Service) driver. Intel® MEI driver allows application to communicate with the FW using host interface, and LMS driver allows applications to access the Intel® AMT FW via the local Intel® Management Engine Interface (Intel® MEI).

Intel® Management Engine Interface driver:
The Intel® MEI driver allows applications to access the Intel® Management Engine FW via the host interface (as opposed to a network interface). The Intel® MEI driver is meant to be used mainly by the Local Manageability Service (LMS). Messages from the Intel® MEI driver are sent to the systems log (i.e. /var/log/messages). Once the Intel® MEI driver is running, an application can open a file to it, connect to an application on the firmware side, and send and receive messages to that application.
