silo-installer 1.12ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


silo-installer (1.12ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low

  * Merge from debian unstable, remaining changes:
    - Ship device2obp shell script that uses new kernel /sysfs obppath
      attribute to determine the OBP path of a certain device.
    - Use UUID instead of real devices for root=.
    - Handle case in which root or boot are on a device that is not part
      of the default set that's created in /target/dev.
    - Generated silo.conf:
      + Add quiet and splash boot option.
      + Move root= partition= and append= from global section to stanza.
      + Automatically generate label=*-rescue to boot without quiet splash
        into single user mode.
      + Detect and add stanzas for other Linux installations.
      + Detect and add stanzas for Solaris installations.
    - If we can detect the OBP alias for our boot disk, make it the default
      for boot-device (via eeprom) and make sure to reboot into it (via
      /proc interface).
