You may test this package to check the freedom of your blag 119k or free F14: http://www.fsfla.org/svnwiki/selibre/linux-libre/download/freed-ora/freed-ora-freedom.noarch.rpm
It seems 119K install by default ati (amd) microcode. It'll help you (and us, if there is a future) to clean your 119k and your F14 you want to free!

PS: the culprit seems (is?) microcode_ctl package. It install:
Code:
/etc/init.d/microcode_ctl
/lib/firmware/amd-ucode
/lib/firmware/amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin
/lib/firmware/microcode.dat
/sbin/microcode_ctl
/usr/share/doc/microcode_ctl-1.17
/usr/share/doc/microcode_ctl-1.17/INSTALL.microcode_amd
/usr/share/doc/microcode_ctl-1.17/LICENSE.microcode_amd
/usr/share/doc/microcode_ctl-1.17/README.microcode_amd
/usr/share/man/man8/microcode_ctl.8.gz

Works great! Helped me clean out the microcode_ctl bugger plus lots of nasty firmware on my BLAG-ified f14. Had the kernel-libre from before, but now have a near-free system (near because of some non-free wifi firmware that I "need"). Will try it on 119k also, thanks for the tip:)
