Description Brendan Horan 2016-02-01 00:20:20 UTC
On my IBM power4+ (9114-275)

Yaboot 1.3.17 fails to boot anything.
I get the following message from the system :
Elapsed time since release of system processors: 3 mins 15 secs

Config file read, 4096 bytes

This seems to be a known issue up by stream ?

The work around is to use yaboot-static 1.3.16-r1.

I am not sure the best action here.
Or if this effects other power4+ users or just this machine. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install yaboot-static
2. Try to boot the machine 
3. Fail
Actual Results:  
Machine fails boots

Expected Results:  
machine boots
Comment 1 Brendan Horan 2016-07-20 07:38:15 UTC
I no longer have this machine.
