“grub2” 1.99-21ubuntu3.7 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

grub2 (1.99-21ubuntu3.7) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * Fix backport mistake that caused grub.cfg not to be created in $efidir
    if UEFI Secure Boot is enabled.
  * When installing to removable media with UEFI Secure Boot, install
    gcdx64.efi.signed rather than grubx64.efi.signed.
  * Make gcdx64.efi.signed fall back to sourcing $prefix/grub.cfg if
    $prefix/x86_64-efi/grub.cfg is missing, as is likely when using
    'grub-install --removable'.

grub2 (1.99-21ubuntu3.6) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * Fix backport mistake in patch to install signed images if UEFI Secure
    Boot is enabled.

grub2 (1.99-21ubuntu3.5) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * Backport several changes to support Secure Boot patches.
  * Add Secure Boot patches from Ubuntu 12.10 and Fedora (LP: #1075181):
    - Don't permit loading modules on UEFI secure boot.
    - Add efifwsetup module to reboot into firmware setup menu.
    - Add "linuxefi" loader which avoids ExitBootServices.
    - Only build linuxefi on amd64.
    - Make linuxefi refuse to boot without shim.
    - Make the linux module call linuxefi when necessary, simplifying
      configuration.
    - If secure boot is enabled and the kernel is signed, linux will call
      linuxefi to hand over to it without calling ExitBootServices.
    - Otherwise, linux will fall through to previous code, call
      ExitBootServices itself, and boot the kernel normally.
    - Change linuxefi to return GRUB_ERR_ACCESS_DENIED rather than
      GRUB_ERR_INVALID_COMMAND in the case of an invalid signature, to make
      it easier to implement different handling of unsigned kernels in
      future if necessary.
    - Generate configuration for signed UEFI kernels if available.
    - Install signed images if UEFI Secure Boot is enabled.
    - Output a menu entry for firmware setup on UEFI FastBoot systems.
    - Add some extra debugging to signed/unsigned kernel logic.
    - On amd64, build two images for signing: one with prefix /EFI/BOOT for
      use on removable media, and one with prefix /EFI/ubuntu (and with the
      lvm, mdraid09, and mdraid1x modules added) for use on fixed disks.

Binary packages built by this source

grub-common: GRand Unified Bootloader (common files)

 This package contains common files shared by the distinct flavours of GRUB.
 It is shared between GRUB Legacy and GRUB 2, although a number of files
 specific to GRUB 2 are here as long as they do not break GRUB Legacy.

grub-coreboot: GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (Coreboot version)

 GRUB is a portable, powerful bootloader. This version of GRUB is based on a
 cleaner design than its predecessors, and provides the following new features:
 .
  - Scripting in grub.cfg using BASH-like syntax.
  - Support for modern partition maps such as GPT.
  - Modular generation of grub.cfg via update-grub. Packages providing GRUB
    add-ons can plug in their own script rules and trigger updates by invoking
    update-grub2.
 .
 This package contains a version of GRUB that has been built for use with
 platforms running the Coreboot firmware.

grub-coreboot-bin: GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (Coreboot binaries)

 GRUB is a portable, powerful bootloader. This version of GRUB is based on a
 cleaner design than its predecessors, and provides the following new features:
 .
  - Scripting in grub.cfg using BASH-like syntax.
  - Support for modern partition maps such as GPT.
  - Modular generation of grub.cfg via update-grub. Packages providing GRUB
    add-ons can plug in their own script rules and trigger updates by invoking
    update-grub2.
 .
 This package contains a version of GRUB that has been built for use with
 platforms running the Coreboot firmware. It will not automatically install
 GRUB as the active boot loader, nor will it automatically update grub.cfg
 on upgrade, so most people should install grub-coreboot instead.

grub-efi: GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (dummy package)

 This is a dummy transitional package that depends on either grub-efi-ia32 or
 grub-efi-amd64, depending on the architecture.

grub-emu: GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (emulated version)

 This package contains grub-emu, an emulated version of GRUB. It is only
 provided for debugging purposes.

grub-firmware-qemu: GRUB firmware image for QEMU

 This package contains a binary of GRUB that has been built for use as
 firmware for QEMU. It can be used as a replacement for the standard
 PC BIOS provided by the bochsbios package (bios.bin).
 .
 In order to make QEMU use this firmware, simply add `-bios grub.bin' when
 invoking it.
 .
 This package behaves in the same way as GRUB for coreboot, but doesn't
 contain any code from coreboot itself, and is only suitable for QEMU. If
 you want to install GRUB as firmware on real hardware, you need to use the
 grub-coreboot package, and manually combine that with coreboot.
