partman-target 60ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


partman-target (60ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
    - Disable automatic mounting of USB removable devices.
    - Mount CD-ROMs and floppies with 'exec' and 'utf8'.
    - Use the path of the file associated with a loop device in /etc/fstab,
      rather than the filesystem's UUID or the loop device path.
    - Always set the loop option for loop devices.
    - Remove critical system files from the existing filesystem before
    - Preserve the UID and GID of the initial user, if possible.  Requires a
      patch to user-setup.
    - Check that /media is on the root file system, since the installer
      relies on being able to mount things like /media/cdrom during
    - Fix disk_containing function to use its argument rather than relying
      on $dev.
    - Rather than pretending that partitions have no longer been formatted
      after the partitioner is complete, reset their intended state from
      "format the partition" to "keep and use the existing data". This still
      solves the original problem reported in Debian bug #256090 while also
      stopping partitions from being needlessly reformatted if you go back to
      the partitioner after base system installation and then forward again.
    - Don't clear partitions or complain about them not being formatted if
      they've already been formatted by a previous partitioner run.
    - Recommend blkid rather than vol_id in /etc/fstab.

  * Merge from Ubuntu:
    - Escape spaces, tabs, newlines, and backslashes in fstab according to
      the procedure described in getmntent(3) (LP: #38224).
    - Issue an error message if two file systems are assigned the same label
      (LP: #320872).
    - Revamp filesystem mounting. We now default to using UUID= fstab syntax
      for all partitions if a UUID is available; this is controllable by
      preseeding partman/mount_style (choices: traditional, label, uuid).
      Add a comment above each label or UUID fstab entry to indicate the
      corresponding device at install time (closes: #225802).
  * Don't display the Back button while checking partitioning and displaying
    errors as a result, since we ignore backup there anyway (closes:
  * Fix proper_mountpoints check to cope with mountpoints containing commas.
  * Use block-attr from di-utils 1.68.

  * Use udevadm instead of udevinfo if available (closes: #530904).
