partman-auto 134ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


partman-auto (134ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium

  * Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
    Recipe changes:
    - Adjust default partition and EFI sizes for Ubuntu.
    - Change the x86 atomic recipes to make the minimum swap size be 100% of
      RAM, so that hibernate always works.
    - In addition to EFI partition, reuse existing swap partitions and
      BIOS Boot Partitions, if any, rather than creating new ones.
    - Use fat32 rather than free as a filesystem type for the efi partitions
      for amd64, arm64, i386; otherwise it's seen as an ext2 partition by
      partman-efi, which causes errors or missing settings.

    Automatic Partitioning:
    - Offer resize_use_free autopartitioning method, except on armel/armhf.
    - Add an option to reuse an existing installation.
    - Split out the replace option from resize_use_free.

    Code changes:
    - Accept autopartitioning automatically rather than showing
    - Drop priority of partman-auto/choose_recipe question to medium.
    - Add support for partman-auto/method=loop via partman-auto-loop.
    - Make biggest_free respect the selection made in partman-auto/disk.
    - Exclude devices containing the installation medium from automatic
    - Use new get_real_resize_range function from partman-partitioning
      72ubuntu3, which caches calls to tune2fs and ntfsresize.
    - Support resizing the largest partition on multiple disks.
    - Support formatting the entire partition for any partition that can be
  * Double minimum and maximum sizes for the /boot partitions on amd64, i386,
    and arm (especially for EFI). (LP: #1465050)
