An updated yaboot package that fixes a bug is now available.
The yaboot package is a boot loader for Open Firmware based PowerPC systems. It can be used to boot IBM eServer System p machines.
Previously, yaboot netboot failed to operate in an environment where the gateway is not same as the 'tftp' server, even though the 'tftp' server is on the same subnet. This issue was caused by yaboot's inability to check whether an IP address is valid. With this update, an IP address validity check has been added that resolves this issue.
All users of yaboot are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
