partman-prep 27ubuntu1.14.04.1 source package in Ubuntu


partman-prep (27ubuntu1.14.04.1) trusty; urgency=medium

  * Better handle PReP partitions created for RAID installs (or in other cases
    where there are multiple partitioning passes): (LP: #1487365)
    - Check filesystem too for a valid PReP partition, in case method was wiped
      in a previous run of partman.
    - Set filesystem to prep in init.d/prep.
    - Remove mountpoints file when setting up a prep partition.
    - Never write the prep flag if we're working on a partition for which the
      parent device is a mdadm array.
    - Enforce the fact that the PReP partition can't be on RAID; also update
      the template accordingly.

 boot loader used on IBM pSeries systems requires a special
 bootstrap partition, created by this method.
