cloud-initramfs-tools 0.27ubuntu1.3 source package in Ubuntu


cloud-initramfs-tools (0.27ubuntu1.3) xenial; urgency=medium

  * sync with upstream at 0.32ubuntu1 (revno 129)
    * overlayroot: fix overlayroot=crypt with newer initramfs-tools
      (LP: #1634310)
    * overlayroot: support random seed from systemd systemd-random-seed.service
    * cloud-initramfs-dyn-netconf: Further adjustments to support
      IPV6 and the new DEVICE6 and net6-DEVICE.conf files.  (LP: #1621615)
    * overlayroot: support 'overlay' filesystem explicitly rather than
      relying on ubuntu specific kernel module 'overlayfs'.  (LP: #1493188)
    * overlayroot: write debug to /run/initramfs not /dev/.initramfs but
      support writing to /dev/.initramfs if that is all there is. (LP: #1485752)
    * overlayroot: fix overlayroot if recurse=0 was not provided.
      This fuctionality was lost since workdir support was added. (LP: #1619459)
    * whitespace cleanup.

Binary packages built by this source

cloud-initramfs-copymods: copy initramfs modules into root filesystem for later use

 When booting with an external-to-root kernel and initramfs, you need
 to ensure that /lib/modules contains any necessary modules not already
 This package arranges for the modules in the initramfs to be placed
 into /lib/modules after the switchroot is done.

cloud-initramfs-dyn-netconf: write a network interface file in /run for BOOTIF

 This package provides an initramfs module that will write a simple
 network interfaces formated file to /run/network/interfaces with
 entries for any devices that were configured during initramfs.

cloud-initramfs-growroot: automatically resize the root partition on first boot

 This package adds functionality to an initramfs built by initramfs-tools.
 When installed, the initramfs will repartition a disk to make the
 root volume consume all space that follows it.
 You most likely do not want this package unless you know what you are
 doing. It is primarily interesting in a virtualized environment when
 a disk can provisioned with a size larger than its original size.
 In this case, with this package installed, you can automatically use
 the new space without requiring a reboot to re-read the partition table.

cloud-initramfs-rescuevol: boot off a rescue volume rather than root filesystem

 This package adds functionality to an initramfs built by initramfs-tools.
 When installed the initramfs will check to see if any partitions
 with a label of 'RESCUE_VOL' are attached. If such a volume is attached,
 it will boot off that volume rather than the root volume.
 This is useful in a cloud environment, when the user is able to attach
 and detach volumes to a running system, but has no other mechanism
 for interupting of fixing a failed boot. It is analogous to inserting
 a rescue CD into a system to recover from failure.

overlayroot: use an overlayfs on top of a read-only root filesystem

 This package adds functionality to an initramfs built by initramfs-tools.
 When installed and configured, the initramfs will mount an overlayfs
 filesystem on top of a read-only root volume.
 The changes can be written to a in-memory temporary filesystem, a
 filesystem on an existing block device, or a dmcrypt encrypted block
