      * Dropped changes:
        - d/patches/kernel_3.5_support.patch: Superceded by

      * Apply bug-684057-ovs-ctl-Add-support-for-newer-module-name.patch to
        allow use of the openvswitch kernel module integrated into 3.3 and
        later.  Closes: #684057.
    
    openvswitch (1.4.2+git20120612-8) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * Apply further patches to fix bugs resulting from moving
        /etc/openvswitch/conf.db to /var/lib/openvswitch in -7.
    
        This required applying the following bug fix patches:
    
        bug-681880-3-Make-the-location-of-the-database-separately-configu.patch
        bug-681880-4-tests-Slightly-generalize-utility-function-tests.patch

      * debian/rules: Configure /var/lib/openvswitch as the database directory
        instead of working through symlinks.  (The symlinks are still created
        for compatibility with people and existing software that are
        accustomed to seeing the database in its original location, but the
        Debian packages themselves never use the symlinks.)
    
      * debian/openvswitch-switch.postrm: Also remove
        /ec/openvswitch/system-id.conf and conf.db backups on purge.
    
      * utilities/ovs-pki.in: Use mode 0700 instead of 0733 for
        openvswitch-pki "incoming" directory, by applying
        bug-683665-use-mode-700-for-pki-incoming-dir.patch.  See the patch for
        complete rationale.  Closes: #683665.  Thanks to Andreas Beckmann
        <email address hidden> for reporting this bug.
    
      * debian/openvswitch-pki.postinst: Change mode of existing "incoming"
        directories to 0700 at configure time (see above).
    
    openvswitch (1.4.2+git20120612-7) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * Move /etc/openvswitch/conf.db to /var/lib/openvswitch, using symlinks.
        Closes: #681880.  Thanks to Bastian Blank <email address hidden> for
        reporting this bug.
    
        This required applying the following bug fix patches:
    
        bug-681880-1-lockfile-Fix-hang-locking-through-a-dangling-symlink.patch
        bug-681880-2-ovsdb-Make-ovsdb-tool-create-work-through-a-dangling.patch
    
      * Start the rest of OVS if bridge compatibility is enabled but the
        kernel bridge module cannot be loaded.  Closes: #681955.  Thanks to
        Bastian Blank <email address hidden> for reporting this bug.
    
        This was fixed by applying the following bug fix patch:
    
        bug-681955-ovs-ctl-Start-the-rest-of-Open-vSwitch.patch
    
    openvswitch (1.4.2+git20120612-6) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * utilities/automake.mk: Fix duplicate mention of ovs-vsctl in
        bin_PROGRAMS and bin_SCRIPTS; it should only have been in the former.
        Closes: #682384.  Thanks to Bastian Blank <email address hidden> for
        reporting this bug.
    
    openvswitch (1.4.2+git20120612-5) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * debian/openvswitch-controller.postrm: Remove configuration files in
        /etc/openvswitch-controller on purge.  Closes: #682187.  Thanks to
        Andreas Beckmann <email address hidden> for reporting this bug.

        - d/patches/kernel_3.5_support.patch: Fix openvswitch-switch startup

  • openvswitch (1.4.2+git20120612-2ubuntu2) quantal; urgency=low
    
      * Disable openvswitch-datapath-dkms package (LP: #1018265); it's not
        compatible with the 3.5 kernel (which provides the openvswitch module)
        and if users really required the brcompat module and are using an older
        kernel then they can use openvswitch-datapath-source.

          VCS to align module naming with openvswitch module in 3.5 kernel.

  • openvswitch (1.4.2+git20120612-2) unstable; urgency=low
    
    
      * Apply upstream commit that enables DKMS to automatically build for the
        running kernel, which seems to be common practice in DMS packaging
        (launchpad bug #962189)
    
     -- Ben Pfaff <email address hidden>  Tue, 19 Jun 2012 09:40:53 -0700
  • openvswitch (1.4.2+git20120612-1) unstable; urgency=low
    
    
      * New upstream version fixing the following bugs:

          - ofproto: Fix use after free in ofoperation_complete().
          - odp-util: Update ODPUTIL_FLOW_KEY_BYTES for current kernel flow format.
          - datapath: Check correct return value from skb_gso_segment().
        o Possible serious malfunctions:
          - dpif-netdev: allow for proper destruction of netdev datapaths.
          - datapath: Validation of IPv6 set port action uses IPv4 header.
        o Rare annoying corner case:
          - odp-util: Fix parsing of actions encapsulated within "sample" actions.
        o Bugs with unknown impact:
          - Correctly set destination MAC in mf_set_flow_value().
        o OpenFlow controller compatibility:
          - Allow OFPP_CONTROLLER as the in_port for packet-out messages.
