Description Adrian Reber 2006-11-24 11:10:55 UTC
In addition to the recent changes to the kernel to support the Maple platform
with Fedora there are some changes in rhpl required to correctly detect it.
Following short patch does this:

The problem on the Maple platform is that in /proc/cpuinfo the line with
"machine" does not exists. Therefore this patch is also looking at the
"platform" line where it says "Maple".

Adrian - does this patch from ydl work for you?  I slightly prefer their method

Proposed patch

I think the best method is to use the mapping to pSeries as in your patch and
the modification to check both machine or platform from ydl patch.  This means
we don't have to add additional conditions on if Maple as it's functionally
like pSeries.

Can you confirm this works as I don't have a Maple board.

Comment 3 Adrian Reber 2006-11-24 14:26:14 UTC
Patch looks like it should work. I will verify it sometimes next week and will
let you know.

Comment 4 Adrian Reber 2006-11-30 08:47:57 UTC
Patch verified and it works perfectly.
