An updated yaboot package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The yaboot package provides a boot loader for Open Firmware based PowerPC systems. It can be used to boot IBM eServer System p machines.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, the /etc/yaboot.conf parser failed during install when the quoted string was too long. This update modifies the code to significantly extend the size of quoted strings. Now, the /etc/yaboot.conf file parses as expected.
Prior to this update, yaboot could only be build using the mock tool which creates a 32-bit PowerPC environment in chroot. This updated package supports building with rpmbuild.
All users of yaboot are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
