dell-recovery 0.59 source package in Ubuntu


dell-recovery (0.59) maverick; urgency=low

  * Add a new preseedable option to set a disk layout (supports mbr or gpt).
    - During install if we are in GPT mode (but not EFI), then install grub
      to the partition as our success failover
  * If we detect /proc/efi on the system, force the disk layout to gpt.
  * Use efibootmgr to twiddle the NVRAM to set the active device if on
    an EFI system.
  * Drop old fdisk based hacks for making partition tables when in mbr
    - Now use a parted wrapper.
    - python-parted would be nice to use, but would add another dependency.
    - parted_server/partman would be nice too, but are a little cumbersome
      to work with outside the context of d-i or ubiquity partitioning.
  * Don't try to build a recovery partition if we detect that we are booted
    to the same device.
  * Drop kexec support.
  * When working in gpt mode, workaround a partman-partitioning bug that
    would otherwise prevent the bootloader from being installed.
