Re: [PATCH v2 4/5] Patch the CHRP boot script
When I tried to send this (with an attached zip file of the output of my test script) to the PowerPC list, I got a bounce message back saying I’m not allowed to send attachments to the list.
So… If you want to see the output of the below script send me an off-list request and I’ll mail it to you individually.
Is there a better way?
