Hi Sven, John,

IMHO this problem seems related to ofpath in etch not getting /dev/sd*
open firmware names correct with 2.6.12 and later kernels. See #321962.

I've already filed #339561 on this issue but perhaps no one noticed
it. My hardware is exactly the same as Johns as far as I can tell. The
ofpath problem is easily solved by using the version of yaboot in sid
on my machine.


I don't quite understand why yaboot in sid is stuck where it is..?
