grub-installer 1.36ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


grub-installer (1.36ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian (XFS change fixes LP: #8058). Remaining
    - Show the grub menu and raise the menu timeout if other operating
      systems are installed.
    - Ask grub-installer/only_debian at medium priority.
    - Remove splash boot parameter unless debian-installer/framebuffer=true.
    - If / or /boot are on a removable device, install GRUB there by
    - Only mount /target/proc if it isn't already mounted.
    - Support setting OVERRIDE_UNSUPPORTED_OS in the environment to force
      grub-installer to use its default MBR selection method despite there
      being unsupported operating systems on the disk.
    - Unless grub-installer/make_active is preseeded to false, mark the
      partition to which GRUB is being installed as bootable, or failing
      that the first available primary partition on the disk to which GRUB
      is being installed.
    - Support grub-installer/bootdev_directory preseeding to make use of the
      relative path feature of grub4dos, so that we can point grub4dos at
      part of a disk for Wubi. Setting this disables normal grub
      installation, but still generates a; it also hides the
    - Only support grub-installer/grub2_instead_of_grub_legacy by preseeding
      for now.
    - Handle cases where /boot is bind-mounted.
    - Add another guard against calling 'udevadm info' with an empty device
    - Add support for writing an MBR on each disk in an mdadm-managed RAID
      providing /boot.
    - Properly make use of output from os-prober to configure the booting of
      other operating systems on dmraid arrays. Attempt to guess where in
      the device map the array belongs, by substituting the first drive in
      the dmraid array for the dmraid array device node itself, and removing
      any reference to other member disks of the array.
    - Add support for lpia.
    - Handle /boot being on a virtio device.
    - Set a sensible default boot device when /cdrom is not iso9660, as this
      is probably a USB install and (hd0) does not make sense when
      installing from a removable disk.
    - Use rootnoverify rather than root when chain-loading Microsoft
      operating systems.
    - 'dmraid -c -s' changed its output format; cope with both old and new.

grub-installer (1.36) unstable; urgency=low

  * Allow to install grub when /boot is on XFS. Since version 0.97-47lenny2
    grub supports XFS so it can be installed without hanging grub-installer.
