dell-recovery 0.46 source package in Ubuntu


dell-recovery (0.46) lucid; urgency=low

  * Default to a 32mb UP rather than no UP if upimg.bin is missing.
  * Add support to also extract a .zip or .tgz for a UP rather than an image.
  * Move the UP explosion step to the beginning of install rather than during
    the RP build.
  * Allow handling early exceptions.  For interactive type installs, show the
    error.  For noninteractive installs, the error will be logged in syslog.
  * Offer in the frontend to produce an image with a utility partition in BTO
  * Fix the frontend to declare the intro page as an intro page and all other
    pages as progress pages.
  * Move the declarations of valid up names to recovery_common.
  * In the backend, clear out any existing UP's in an image if we are providing
    a new one.
  * Add logic to process .zip and .tgz type UP's in the backend.
  * Update translations from launchpad.
  * Install the 99_dell_recovery in /usr/share/dell/grub rather than
  * Move grub.cfg from the ubuntu-fid tree into dell-recovery.
  * Move the functions for dynamically filling out grub files into
  * Dynamically fill grub.cfg's partition and OS information out.
  * Clean up the text for the reboot dialog to clarify the action that needs
    to happen.
  * Add a tooltip to the dell-dvd image to show the device the recovery media
    is mounted on, for debug purposes.
  * Convert the swap detection unmount routine to use udisks.
  * Convert the install disk detection routine to use udisks.
  * No longer rely on the preseeded value for partman-auto/disks.  We'll be
    detecting entirely independently now for that.
  * Since we can more accurately detect disks, don't enable EDD for any of the
    default boot options anymore.
  * Set the default recovery partition grub menu colors to red/white rather than
    red/black to better emulate what we see in the factory with failures.
  * Detect invalid recovery partition filesystems and notify the user.
  * Send the detected potential devices list to the frontend.
  * Allow the user to select a different disk than the first one in the UI if
    they would like to.
  * Add support for FAT32 LBA.
  * Default to FAT32 LBA.
