Bug Description

ogra's wireless connection drops during partitioning, and is reproducible. It is assumed that this is caused by udevadm trigger; udevadm settle in update-dev. The suggested fix is to add --subsystem-nomatch for the network subsystem.

The required change cannot be made in debian-installer-utils as it would potentially break netcfg. This is ok, as the bug does not exist in d-i, however it means that we'll have to hack --subsystem-nomatch=net on the end of the calls to udevadm trigger / udevtrigger in update-dev in ubiquity's build system.

  * Filter out the net subsystem when calling update-dev to prevent the
    network connection from resetting (LP: #276383).
  * If ubiquity is installing from a disk, such as a USB drive, then default
    to writing grub to the disk that /boot or / is to be written to, as (hd0)
    will most likely be the installation medium (LP: #282037).
  * Automatic update of included source packages: apt-setup
    1:0.37ubuntu5, partman-auto 78ubuntu3, partman-base 121ubuntu7,
    partman-target 55ubuntu4, user-setup 1.20ubuntu9.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Fix typo in architecture detection for ntfsprogs dependency.
  * Work around lpia having DEB_HOST_ARCH_CPU=i686 (!).
  * Disable window minimise buttons if the installer is running in
    standalone mode (LP: #249045).
  * Update imported translations from gtk+2.0 2.14.3-0ubuntu3.
  * Update translations from Launchpad (LP: #144741, #218636, #277451).

  [ Emmet Hikory ]
  * Honor preseeded passwd/allow-password-empty (LP: #280014)
