Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 855246
SLOF packages is very out of date with respect to what qemu expects
Last modified: 2012-09-27 01:09:35 EDT
Description of problem:
The SLOF package exists to provide the guest firmware image for the qemu-system-ppc64 -M pseries machine. However the version of qemu in F18 expects a much newer SLOF (git tag qemu-slof-20120731) than the one currently packaged (qemu-slof-20120217).
Could the reporter request co-maint on the package,
then you can fix all of these bugs yourself.
Well, I can't, since I'm not a Fedora dev. My colleague Tony Breeds is, however and says he is willing to be the co-maint and ferry my fixes in. What's the next step?
Here are some starting points:
Fixed in git commit 6bdc3bd35defb43522faee3284344bc322d7ce8c.
SLOF-0-0.1.git20120731.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
SLOF-0-0.1.git20120731.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Looks good, thanks.
SLOF-0-0.1.git20120731.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
SLOF-0-0.1.git20120731.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
