“grub2” 1.99~20101210-1ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

grub2 (1.99~20101210-1ubuntu1) natty; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Resynchronise with Debian experimental.  Remaining changes:
    - Adjust for default Ubuntu boot options ("quiet splash").
    - Default to hiding the menu; holding down Shift at boot will show it.
    - Set a monochromatic theme for Ubuntu.
    - Apply Ubuntu GRUB Legacy changes to legacy update-grub script: title,
      recovery mode, quiet option, tweak how memtest86+ is displayed, and
      use UUIDs where appropriate.
    - Fix backslash-escaping in merge_debconf_into_conf.
    - Remove "GNU/Linux" from default distributor string.
    - Add crashkernel= options if kdump and makedumpfile are available.
    - If other operating systems are installed, then automatically unhide
      the menu.  Otherwise, if GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT is 0, then use keystatus
      if available to check whether Shift is pressed.  If it is, show the
      menu, otherwise boot immediately.  If keystatus is not available, then
      fall back to a short delay interruptible with Escape.
    - Allow Shift to interrupt 'sleep --interruptible'.
    - Don't display introductory message about line editing unless we're
      actually offering a shell prompt.  Don't clear the screen just before
      booting if we never drew the menu in the first place.
    - Remove some verbose messages printed before reading the configuration
      file.
    - Suppress progress messages as the kernel and initrd load for
      non-recovery kernel menu entries.
    - Change prepare_grub_to_access_device to handle filesystems
      loop-mounted on file images.
    - Ignore devices loop-mounted from files in 10_linux.
    - Show the boot menu if the previous boot failed, that is if it failed
      to get to the end of one of the normal runlevels.
    - Don't generate /boot/grub/device.map during grub-install or
      grub-mkconfig by default.
    - Adjust upgrade version checks for Ubuntu.
    - Don't display "GRUB loading" unless Shift is held down.
    - Adjust versions of grub-doc and grub-legacy-doc conflicts to tolerate
      our backport of the grub-doc split.
    - Fix LVM/RAID probing in the absence of /boot/grub/device.map.
    - Look for .mo files in /usr/share/locale-langpack as well, in
      preference.
    - Make sure GRUB_TIMEOUT isn't quoted unnecessarily.
    - Probe all devices in 'grub-probe --target=drive' if
      /boot/grub/device.map is missing.
    - Build-depend on qemu-kvm rather than qemu-system for grub-pc tests.
    - Use qemu rather than qemu-system-i386.
    - Program vesafb on BIOS systems rather than efifb.
    - Add a grub-rescue-efi-amd64 package containing a rescue CD-ROM image
      for EFI-AMD64.
    - On Wubi, don't ask for an install device, but just update wubildr
      using the diverted grub-install.
    - When embedding the core image in a post-MBR gap, check for and avoid
      sectors matching any of a list of known signatures.
    - Disable video_bochs and video_cirrus on PC BIOS systems, as probing
      PCI space seems to break on some systems.
    - Downgrade "ACPI shutdown failed" error to a debug message, since it
      can cause spurious test failures.
    - Put second and subsequent Linux menu entries in a submenu.
  * Add a background_color command.
  * Disable lua enum_pci on ieee1275 platforms, where <grub/cpu/pci.h> isn't
    available.
  * Add preferred resolution detection for VBE.  GRUB_GFXMODE now defaults
    to "auto".
  * Set an aubergine background, and set vt.handoff=7 for as smooth a
    handoff as possible to kernel graphical mode (LP: #386047).

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * grub-mkrescue efi amd64 images:
    When searching for .disk/info, set the 'root' parameter as the regular
    search requires the variable being set as an argument.

grub2 (1.99~20101210-1) experimental; urgency=low

  * New Bazaar snapshot.
    - ZFS moved into grub-core.
    - Extend gettext to fall back from ll_CC to ll, and set lang to include
      country part by default so that Chinese works (LP: #686788).
  * Remove grub-mknetdir from grub-emu.
  * Exit silently from zz-update-grub kernel hook if update-grub does not
    exist (e.g. if grub-pc has been removed but not purged; closes:
    #606184).
