An updated yaboot package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The yaboot package provides a boot loader for Open Firmware based PowerPC systems. It can be used to boot IBM eServer System p machines.
Prior to this update, the yaboot boot loader failed when either a ext4 or an encrypted partition was defined on the primary disk drive. This update modifies the yaboot binary so that it accepts ext4 and encrypted partitions on the primary disk drive.
All users of yaboot are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
