partman-auto 103ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


partman-auto (103ubuntu1) quantal; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
    - Adjust default partition sizes for Ubuntu.
    - Accept autopartitioning automatically rather than showing
    - Drop priority of partman-auto/choose_recipe question to medium.
    - Offer resize_use_free autopartitioning method, except on armel/armhf.
    - Add support for partman-auto/method=loop via partman-auto-loop.
    - Drop the bootable flag from i386/amd64 recipes; it can break existing
      Windows installations when autopartitioning only free space rather
      than a whole disk.
    - Make biggest_free respect the selection made in partman-auto/disk.
    - Exclude devices containing the installation medium from automatic
    - Add armel/dove recipes.
    - Use new get_real_resize_range function from partman-partitioning
      72ubuntu3, which caches calls to tune2fs and ntfsresize.
    - Add i386/efi (and amd64/efi, kfreebsd-i386/efi, and
      kfreebsd-amd64/efi) recipes that create an EFI System Partition.
    - Support resizing the largest partition on multiple disks.
    - Support formatting the entire partition for any partition that can be
    - Change the x86 atomic recipes to make the minimum swap size be 100% of
      RAM, so that hibernate always works.
    - Add an option to reuse an existing installation.
    - Split out the replace option from resize_use_free.
    - Signal to clear_partitions in partman-target that it should not notify
      the user about the unformatted partitions we have set up.
    - Add $reusemethod internal specifier, which excludes the partition if a
      partition with the same method already exists.
    - Reuse existing swap partitions, BIOS Boot Partitions, and EFI System
      Partitions, if any, rather than creating new ones.
    - Increase minimum size of EFI System Partitions to 100MB.
    - Add a hack to stop EFI System Partitions showing up as to-be-formatted
      in the confirm-changes screen when there's an existing filesystem that
      would cause partman-efi to skip them.
    - Temporarily back out changes to recipes/atomic and recipes/home from
      partman-auto 94.
