Well, I just checked and on my Intel laptop, ucode-intel and *only* ucode-intel has been installed. That seems to me like it could confirm the theory that "Supplements:" work fine (as ucode-intel was installed while ucode-amd wasn't), but only if the package with the proper "Supplements:" is available (which in this case means it should be present in the DVD). Does this make sense?
