“util-linux” 2.17.2-0ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

util-linux (2.17.2-0ubuntu1) lucid; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian experimental, remaining changes:
    - Since udev is required in Ubuntu, the hwclock.sh init script is
      not called on startup and the hwclockfirst.sh init script is
      removed.
    - Use wildcards for symbols file, since they use versioned symbols
      properly.
    - Remove /etc/adjtime on upgrade if it was not used.
    - Install custom blkid.conf to use /dev/.blkid.tab since we don't
      expect device names to survive a reboot
    - No lsb_release call in mount.preinst since we'd need Pre-Depends
      (LP: #383697).
    - Do not install initramfs hook, since our initramfs already handles
      including blkid.
    - Mention mountall(8) in fstab(5) manpages, along with its special
      options.

  * For the case where mount is called with a directory to mount, look
    that directory up in mountall's /lib/init/fstab if we couldn't find
    it mentioned anywhere else.  This means "mount /proc", "mount /sys",
    etc. work.

Binary packages built by this source

bsdutils: Basic utilities from 4.4BSD-Lite

 This package contains the bare minimum number of BSD utilities needed
 to boot a Debian system: logger, renice, script, scriptreplay, and wall.
 The remaining standard BSD utilities are provided by bsdmainutils.

cfdisk-udeb: Manually partition a hard drive (cfdisk)
fdisk-udeb: Manually partition a hard drive (fdisk)
libblkid-dev: block device id library - headers and static libraries

 The blkid library which allows system programs like fsck and
 mount to quickly and easily find block devices by filesystem UUID and
 LABEL. This allows system administrators to avoid specifiying
 filesystems by hard-coded device names, but via a logical naming
 system instead.
 .
 This package contains the development environment for the blkid library.

libblkid1: block device id library

 The blkid library which allows system programs like fsck and
 mount to quickly and easily find block devices by filesystem UUID and
 LABEL. This allows system administrators to avoid specifying
 filesystems by hard-coded device names, but via a logical naming
 system instead.

libblkid1-udeb: block device id library

 The blkid library which allows system programs like fsck and
 mount to quickly and easily find block devices by filesystem UUID and
 LABEL. This allows system administrators to avoid specifiying
 filesystems by hard-coded device names, but via a logical naming
 system instead.
 .
 This is a minimal package for debian-installer.

libuuid1: Universally Unique ID library

 The libuuid library generates and parses 128-bit universally unique
 ids (UUIDs). A UUID is an identifier that is unique across both
 space and time, with respect to the space of all UUIDs. A UUID can
 be used for multiple purposes, from tagging objects with an extremely
 short lifetime, to reliably identifying very persistent objects
 across a network.
 .
 See RFC 4122 for more information.

libuuid1-udeb: stripped down universally unique id library, for debian-installer

 libuuid generates and parses 128-bit universally unique ids (UUIDs).
 See RFC 4122 for more information.
 .
 This is a minimal package for debian-installer.

mount: Tools for mounting and manipulating filesystems

 This package provides the mount(8), umount(8), swapon(8),
 swapoff(8), and losetup(8) commands.

util-linux: Miscellaneous system utilities

 This package contains a number of important utilities, most of which
 are oriented towards maintenance of your system. Some of the more
 important utilities included in this package allow you to partition
 your hard disk, view kernel messages, and create new filesystems.

util-linux-locales: Locales files for util-linux

 This package contains the internationalization files of for the util-linux
 package.
 .
 They are needed when you want the programs in util-linux to print their
 messages in other languages than English.

util-linux-udeb: Miscellaneous system utilities

 This is a minimal version of util-linux for debian-installer. It only
 contains the blkid binary at the moment.

uuid-dev: universally unique id library - headers and static libraries

 libuuid generates and parses 128-bit universally unique ids (UUIDs).
 See RFC 4122 for more information.
 .
 This package contains the development environment for the uuid library.

uuid-runtime: runtime components for the Universally Unique ID library

 The libuuid library generates and parses 128-bit universally unique
 ids (UUIDs). A UUID is an identifier that is unique across both
 space and time, with respect to the space of all UUIDs. A UUID can
 be used for multiple purposes, from tagging objects with an extremely
 short lifetime, to reliably identifying very persistent objects
 across a network.
 .
 See RFC 4122 for more information.
 .
 This package contains the uuidgen program and the uuidd daemon.
 .
 The uuidd daemon is used to generate UUIDs, especially time-based
 UUID’s, in a secure and guaranteed-unique fashion, even in the face
 of large numbers of threads trying to grab UUID’s running on
 different CPU’s. It is used by libuuid as well as the uuidgen
 program.
