Fixing bug #572869: ofpath doesn't work in the absence of /proc/scsi/scsi

Fixing bug #572869: ofpath doesn't work in the absence of /proc/scsi/scsi

I will need volunteer help to collect more information about SAS, SATA
and SCSI hardware configurations on Power machines.

Please use recent beta or daily Debian powerpc install CD to boot your

On a POWER or 64bit PowerPC machine type:

  boot: install64 video=ofonly

On a headless machine type:

  boot: install64 console=ttyS0,9600n8

on a G3/G4 machine type:

  boot: install video=ofonly

Choose your language, location and keyboard. Let the installer load
additional installer components. On next screen choose <Go Back>. You
may need to repeat <Go Back> until 'Debian installer main menu' shows up.

On 'Debian installer main menu' scroll down and choose "Execute a shell."

When you get the shell prompt type:

  mkdir /info

  uname -a > /info/uname

  cat /proc/cpuinfo > /info/cpuinfo

  lspci -v > /info/lspci

  tar cf /info/device-tree.tar /proc/device-tree

  find /sys -name host\* -o -name ide\* > /info/hosts

  find /sys -name proc_name -o -name devspec > /info/specs

  cat `cat /info/specs` > /info/paths

  ls -l /sys/class/block > /info/blocks

  tar cf /info.tar /info

Mount a thumb drive, floppy disk, or a hard drive and save the
"info.tar" file while renaming it to reflect retail name of the machine.


  mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt
  cp /info.tar /mnt/Power520.info.tar
  umount /mnt


  mount -t ext3 /dev/sda3 /mnt
  cp /info.tar /mnt/YDLPowerStation.info.tar
  umount /mnt

Then type:


Finally, email the file back.

Thank you for your time and efforts,
