dpkg 188.8.131.52ubuntu4.6 source package in Ubuntu
dpkg (184.108.40.206ubuntu4.6) lucid-proposed; urgency=low * Cherry-pick fixes for sync() behaviour in dpkg (LP: #624877): - Disable by default usage of synchronous sync(2), as it causes undesired I/O on unrelated file systems. Closes: #588339, #595927, #600075 - On Linux use sync_file_range() to initiate asynchronous writeback of just unpacked files. Suggested by Ted Ts'o <email address hidden>. Thanks to Jonathan Nieder <email address hidden>. Closes: #605009 -- Michael Jeanson <email address hidden> Fri, 14 Sep 2012 09:43:09 -0400
