dh-kpatches 0.99.36 source package in Ubuntu
dh-kpatches (0.99.36) unstable; urgency=low * Have kernels in the short stable 4-numbers "branchlets" (eg. 2.6.11.x) of the 2.6 line default to using a patch with matching 3-numbers version if a 4-numbers one is not found (Closes: #309147). This is not 100% accurate since EXTRAVERSION is used for many things, but well, it looks like we'll have to live with this way of numbering the kernels. * Removed special handling of 188.8.131.52 as an "irregular version", since it falls in the above case. The "irregular version" mechanism is kept, in case we have to find a quick solution to another kernel versionning change. * Revert abusive merging of regexp from 0.99.35: we do not need to be as strict on single versions are we need to be on ranged ones (Closes: #281801). * Avoid spurious warning messages from dpkg-gencontrol (Closes: #263617). -- Yann Dirson <email address hidden> Thu, 9 Jun 2005 00:45:43 +0200
