Bug#386332: yaboot-installer: should use ofpathname instead of ofpath on chrp boxes.

Package: yaboot-installer
Severity: important

Please consider using the ofpathname tool from :


instead of ofpath for chrp machines, as it works much better and is generally
less buggy than the yaboot ofpath implementation.

An install on an IBM pSeries p505 failed to generate a working yaboot.conf in
this case.

Also, make sure to copy the yaboot.conf to the /boot partition if the root
partition is some funny format not supported by yaboot (like the
LVM-over-RAID1 i just tried), and set the device= and partition= fields
