Re: Bug#589701: ofpath is not compatible with non-builtin disk controllers

Hi Milan,

So the interesting question is this:

What do we have to do to tweak ofpath and make it handle properly all (or some) of those other OF-aware controllers?

Can you help us on that?

OK... If I'm understanding this correctly, it means that NewWorld Mac's can boot either from the on-board ATA or one of these OF-supporting SATA
controllers  (possibly with some tweaks to ofpath to deal with any
peculiarities of the non-Apple controllers) but *not* from most
non-OF-aware controllers.

Right. But it can also boot from an on-board SCSI, on-board SATA, and
any Firewire drive. Add-on SCSI, SATA, and ATA controllers must have
proper OpenFirmware support to be able to boot an OpenFirmware machine.
