The intent appears to have been to eliminate yaboot for F20 ppc64, but
the implementation did not go smoothly. There were residual references
to yaboot in the configuration created by Anaconda, that can
even leave the resulting system in limbo.
See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=876625 and
I've had no luck getting a PowerMac G5 (Radeon 9600) install to
complete with either F20 ppc DVD or Netboot, or the RHEL7 ppc64 RC.
This makes looking at problems like the FTBFS for hfsplus-tools a tad
I'd really like to get a local working Rawhide Live-DVD build running,
since there are no current ppc64 (or ppc) Live-DVD spins or updated
F20 install media.
