Summary     : Linux bootloader for Power Macintosh "New World" computers.
Description :
yaboot is a bootloader for PowerPC machines which works on New World ROM
machines (Rev. A iMac and newer) and runs directly from Open Firmware,
eliminating the need for Mac OS.
yaboot can also bootload IBM pSeries machines.

Update Information:

This fixes memory corruption which was being seen 4MiB into the kernel image,
caused by yaboot's "bi_records" which the kernel doesn't look for anyway.

ChangeLog:

* Sun Jun  7 2009 David Woodhouse <David Woodhouse intel com> - 1.3.14-13
- Don't set up bi_recs. Especially not in the middle of the kernel text.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update yaboot' at the command line.
