partman-target 64ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


partman-target (64ubuntu1) 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.
    - 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.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Upgrade to debhelper v7.

  [ Max Vozeler ]
  * Revert change that used LABEL in fstab if configured by the user.
    Labels have non-obvious problems that make them unsuitable for use
    as device specifiers in fstab. (

    label was explicitly configured by the user.
