Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2008-05-05 08:30:25 EDT
What machine? What symlinks? Does the current Fedora version of ofpath work?
Comment 2 Roman Rakus 2008-05-05 09:05:45 EDT
Machine: ppc03.englab.brq.redhat.com
Trying with: yaboot-1.3.13-12.fc9.ppc.rpm

Still same problem.

Porting upstream patch should be easy...
