initramfs-tools 0.92bubuntu32 source package in Ubuntu


initramfs-tools (0.92bubuntu32) karmic; urgency=low

  * Copy in KMS drivers (currently just i915 and the AGP drivers) if we can,
    so that we can load them before starting usplash. NOTE that this whole
    edifice is not intended to be used by default on most systems for
    Karmic, and that the general intent is to make the initramfs smaller
    rather than larger; however, we're still going to need usplash in the
    initramfs for some use cases (e.g. dm-crypt), so we might as well get
    this working now.
  * Fix formatting error in initramfs-tools(8).
  * 'set -e' in initramfs-tools.postrm.
  * Fix handling of resume_offset: if it's set then we need to check in a
    different location for the swap signature.
  * Remove kinit and gzip from the initramfs. The first record I can find of
    this Ubuntu change is in a merge from Debian, and I can't see any
    justification for it since neither binary is actually used by any
    initramfs scripts.
  * Remove klibc utilities if busybox is in use (patch based on Debian
    #338405; LP: #327106). Leave a symlink for /bin/sleep since some scripts
    expect that to exist.
