Description Alex Kanavin 2007-07-31 18:13:32 UTC
/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 19:58:27 UTC
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 20:21:00 UTC
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 20:39:38 UTC
Let me poke tomorrow when I can get my hands on a box.

Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2007-08-01 08:48:27 UTC
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.
