yaboot provides mkofboot, it is a symlink to ybin, are either of those present? The yaboot.spec shows:


Are all of those there?

*** Bug 811972 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 4 Karsten Hopp 2012-04-12 11:02:56 EDT
We've switched to grub2 on PPC, so yaboot shouldn't be installed at all. Grub2 works fine on IBM Power systems, it is just on PowerMac where this problem shows up due to the way the firmware works. I'll try to figure out what needs to be chenged in anaconda. It can be done, as I've had reports that even G4 machines can be booted with grub2.

I haven't seen this issue again for quite a while now, so we can safely assume that this has been fixed
