base-installer 1.121ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


base-installer (1.121ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
    - Use and depend on the Ubuntu keyring.
    - Enable the restricted component by default, unless
      apt-setup/restricted is preseeded to false.
    - Set up the default sources.list to look in -updates and -security (the
      latter from apt-setup/security_host and apt-setup/security_path) as
      well as the unadorned suite; also -proposed if apt-setup/proposed is
    - Use Ubuntu kernel image names.
    - Allow preseeding base-installer/kernel/override-image to force a given
      kernel to be used.
    - Install busybox-initramfs rather than busybox.
    - Revert Joey's patch to call base-installer.d hooks after running
      debootstrap, which broke console-setup's expectation of being able to
      insert its configuration file into /target before console-setup is
      installed by debootstrap.
    - Add armel/imx51, armel/dove, armel/omap, and armel/omap4
    - Install kernel headers to match the kernel. This may be overridden by
      setting base-installer/kernel/headers to false.
    - Add base-installer/kernel/backports-modules template, which may be
      preseeded to install selected linux-backports-modules-* packages.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Merge from Ubuntu:
    - Run dpkg with --force-unsafe-io during installation; syncing is
      unnecessary in this context and can slow things down quite a bit
      (closes: #605384).
  * Consider 3.0 and later kernels as being like 2.6 for the purposes of
    debconf template selection.

  [ Samuel Thibault ]
  * Propose kernels only of the same kind (closes: Bug#637432)

  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Treat 3.x the same as 2.6 in arch_get_kernel.

  [ Updated translations ]
  * German (de.po) by Holger Wansing
  * Basque (eu.po)
  * Italian (it.po) by Milo Casagrande
  * Macedonian (mk.po) by Arangel Angov
  * Simplified Chinese (zh_CN.po) by YunQiang Su

  [ Samuel Thibault ]
  * Redirect hurd-i386 active firmlink to null to avoid letting callers keep
    trying reading from it.
