Posted on: 08/04/2005 12:27 PM

A yaboot update has been released for Fedora Core 4

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 4
Name : yaboot
Version : 1.3.12
Release : 10
Summary : Linux bootloader for Power Macintosh "New World" computers.
Description :
yaboot is a bootloader for PowerPC machines which works on New World ROM machines (Rev. A iMac and newer) and runs directly from Open Firmware, eliminating the need for Mac OS.

Update Information:

Kernels later than 1.3.12-mm1 no longer provide symlinks in
/proc/device-tree. Yaboot's ofpath binary had a check for
BootX that would error in such a case, this update
eliminates that check so ofpath continues to work on FC4
kernel updates.

Impact is minimal as ofpath is not required to be run after
the initial install.
* Thu Aug 4 2005 Paul Nasrat lt;pnasrat@redhat.comgt; - 1.3.12-10
- Fix ofpath for 2.6.12-mm1 and later
