Seems to work for me.  It gives the same answers as ofpath (packaged

(Digital Audio) with an IDE harddrive and cdrom drive, and a usb
floppy drive...

$ ./ofpathname /dev/hda
$ ./ofpathname /dev/hdc
$ ./ofpathname /dev/sda

(for comparison)
# ofpath /dev/hda
# ofpath /dev/hdc
# ofpath /dev/sdc
ofpath: /proc/device-tree is broken. Do not use BootX to boot, use yaboot. ofpath: The yaboot HOWTO can be found here:

So your script seems better.


To clarify, though, it's not my script: it's from the ppc64-utils package (which I'm thinking needs to be renamed)... I just added a small patch I needed for my G3 before sending it to the list.
