1.179.1.  RHEA-2009:1247: enhancement update

Enhanced ppc64-utils packages that add support for virtual Fibre Channel devices to the ofpathname script are now available.
ppc64-utils is a collection of utilities for Linux running on 64-bit PowerPC platforms.
These updated ppc64-utils packages add the following enhancement:
  • previously, the ofpathname script was not able to translate logical device names to Open Firmware device path names for virtual Fibre Channel devices. With these updated packages, ofpathname now supports virtual Fibre Channel devices. For more information on ofpathname, refer to the ofpathname(8) manual page. (BZ#477201)
Users of ppc64-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
