reliance on yaboot 1.3.14
Last modified: 2012-11-07 02:22:33 EST
yaboot 1.3.14 supports finding the configuration file by hex IP address. yaboot 1.3.16 apparently does not. 1.3.16, though, is necessary to netinstall Fedora on ppc64.

I'm not at all familiar with yaboot, and I don't have a ppc box handy to play with boot loaders on -- but are you sure this is true? From my cursory reading of yaboot git, it seems even in the latest version 1.3.17 the code exists to fetch the config file by IP address. If it's not working properly for you, we will need more details to track down what is going wrong.
Can you turn up verbosity of the TFTP server (add -v to server_args in /etc/xinet.d/tftp) so we can see exactly what filenames yaboot fetches?
Can you paste the complete DHCP response being send to yaboot, so we can see if there is anything odd? (For dnsmasq you can set log-dhcp in /etc/dnsmasq.conf, for ISC dhcpd I'm not sure. Or just use wireshark.)
Bulk reassignment of issues as Bill has moved to another team.
