procps 1:3.2.8-11ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


procps (1:3.2.8-11ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian testing, remaining changes:
    - debian/rules (Ubuntu-specific):
      + use upstart for init script.
      + install sysctl files from new sysctl.d directory.
      + set init script to S17.
    - debian/sysctl.d (Ubuntu-specific):
      + 10-console-messages.conf: stop low-level kernel messages on console.
      + 10-kernel-hardening.conf: add the kptr_restrict setting
      + 10-keyboard.conf.powerpc: mouse button emulation on PowerPC.
      + 10-network-security.conf: enable rp_filter and SYN-flood protection.
      + 10-ptrace.conf: describe new PTRACE setting.
      + 10-zeropage.conf: safe mmap_min_addr value for graceful fall-back.
      + README: describe how this directory is supposed to work.
    - debian/upstart (Ubuntu-specific): upstart configuration to replace old
      style sysv init script.
  * Dropped changes, included in Debian:
    - debian/patch/ubuntu-handle-short-kernel-versions.patch -- quiet
      warning when kernel version are less than 3 digits.
    - pmap.c: pmap -x correctly reports Kbytes column and prints
      summaries for RSS and Dirty
  * Other dropped changes:
    - specifying '--error-handler=:': the correct way to avoid starting jobs
      in a schroot is by configuring policy-rc.d or by diverting invoke-rc.d;
      we should not silently ignore errors.
  * Mark procps multiarch: foreign.

libproc-dev: library for accessing process information from /proc

 These are the header files for libproc. Some packages using libproc
 to access process information from /proc need these to compile.

procps: /proc file system utilities

 This package provides command line and full screen utilities for browsing
 procfs, a "pseudo" file system dynamically generated by the kernel to
 provide information about the status of entries in its process table
 (such as whether the process is running, stopped, or a "zombie").
 It contains free, kill, pkill, pgrep, pmap, ps, pwdx, skill, slabtop,
 snice, sysctl, tload, top, uptime, vmstat, w, and watch.
