Fedora Updated package.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-692
2005-08-04
---------------------------------------------------------------------

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  - 1.3.12-10
- Fix ofpath for 2.6.12-mm1 and later
