nbd 1:2.9.14-3 source package in Debian


nbd (1:2.9.14-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Be more careful about what we unmount. Closes: #534728.
  * Fix three-argument nbdroot= boot option parsing. Closes: #568221.
    Thanks, Vagrant Cascadian.
  * nbd-client initramfs script: Remove default fallback to eth0. This
    was necessary in the past when initramfs-utils' configure_networking
    function could only be called from /init, but it was a hack and a
    workaround and it broke expectations. And it was ugly. Since
    configure_networking can now in fact be called from elsewhere, why
    bother with setting broken defaults, anyway? Right. Closes: #567232.
    Thanks again, Vagrant Cascadian.
  * Support setting root-on-NBD through DHCP by abusing the ROOTPATH
    variable. Closes: #568222. This supersedes the previous (broken)
    support that used ROOTSERVER -- broken, because the latter only
    supported setting the server, not the port, and obviously that's not
    enough. Thanks yet again, Vagrant.
  * debian/control: declare conformance to policy 3.8.4 (no changes
    applicable to nbd)
  * Override init.d-script-missing-dependency-on-remote_fs lintian tag
    for nbd-client. This is a false positive; we set $PATH to a sane
    value so that any modifications would work, but we don't actually
    use anything from /usr ourselves, and no, we really don't want to
    depend on $remote_fs, since we might be providing something like
    that ourselves, depending on setup.
