I'm getting this error when I run ybin -v (as root):
Quote:
ybin: /dev/nvram: No such device
ybin: Warning: nvram will not be updated

My system boot just fine, and I have a file in my /dev/ called nvram. I guess I'll be needing access to this file or the ability sometime in the future. Is that true? Shouldn't I fix this?

Emerge powerpc-utils and make sure that you have nvram support in your kernel.

CONFIG_NVRAM=y
