Description Alex Kanavin 2007-07-31 14:13:32 EDT
/proc/ide was made optional in 2.6.22+ kernels and Fedora builds omit it. This
breaks userspace tools, at least yaboot but possibly others. Please fix ASAP,
the option is CONFIG_IDE_PROC_FS.
Comment 1 Paul Nasrat 2007-07-31 15:58:27 EDT
I'd probably be happy to fix yaboot (well ybin up) for 2.6.22+

Let me look into it.
Comment 2 Alex Kanavin 2007-07-31 16:21:00 EDT
Actually, ofpath :) I'm not sure if it's possible to fix without /proc/ide - it seems to be pulling some magic 
values out of it.
Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2007-07-31 16:39:38 EDT
Let me poke tomorrow when I can get my hands on a box.
Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2007-08-01 04:48:27 EDT
This is fixed by re-enabling CONFIG_IDE_PROC_FS in the kernel for now. Hopefully
we'll be able to switch to libata for the pmac some time soon.
