Description David Gibson 2012-09-07 02:01:48 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).
Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2012-09-07 04:19:01 EDT
Could the reporter request co-maint on the package,
then you can fix all of these bugs yourself.
Comment 2 David Gibson 2012-09-12 02:20:47 EDT
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?
Comment 4 Paolo Bonzini 2012-09-14 05:41:46 EDT
Fixed in git commit 6bdc3bd35defb43522faee3284344bc322d7ce8c.
