Bug Description

Binary package hint: dpkg

dpkg 1.15 has some bug fixes that I'd very much like to see make it into Karmic.

Is there any chance of this happening this release cycle, or is it too late?

I've just merged dpkg 1.15.2; I'd had the merge in progress for some time and it was fairly complicated. I see now that there's a .3, so I'll merge that too.

This bug was fixed in the package dpkg - 1.15.3ubuntu1

dpkg (1.15.3ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian (LP: #393280). Remaining changes:
    Ubuntu-specific adjustments (probably):
    - Use i686 for lpia in cputable and triplettable.
    - Hack Dpkg::Arch to return i686 for lpia.
    - Move various Conflicts to Breaks, since upgrades from stable Ubuntu
      releases support Breaks.

    Miscellaneous bug fixes:
    - Avoid duplicate attempts to [f]close in obscure error situations which
      might conceiveably close wrong fds.
    - Revert change to stop outputting a newline after a postinst is run
      (Debian #392317).
    - Use the two-arg form of open in Dpkg::Control so that "-" can be
      passed to parse stdin as a control file (Debian #465340).

    Launchpad integration:
    - Add Launchpad-Bugs-Fixed handling in a few more places.

    Build options:
    - Point to from
    - Set default LDFLAGS to -Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions. (We've already taken
      this hit in Ubuntu.)
    - Implement handling of hardening-wrapper options via DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS.

dpkg (1.15.3) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * Unset TAR_OPTIONS when extracting .deb archives.
  * Use default compressor values in dpkg-source from Dpkg::Source::Compressor.
  * Fix dpkg-scanpackages to properly detect spurious overrides.
  * Rewrite dpkg-name in perl.
  * Do not close already closed files in some error conditions in libdpkg.
  * Use the correct units (KiB) in dpkg-split when referring to partsize.
  * Document in dpkg-statoverride(8) that mode needs to be specified in
    octal. Closes: #534551
  * Mark argument names in dpkg-statoverride.1 in italic.
  * Explicitly pass field argument to Dpkg::ErrorHandling::unknown().
  * Move unknown() from Dpkg::ErrorHandling to Dpkg::Fields.

  [ Raphael Hertzog ]
  * Unset TAR_OPTIONS when creating/extracting tar archives for source
    packages. Closes: #530860
  * Add cleanup of all invalid (master) alternatives in preinst script.
    Closes: #530633, #531611, #532739, #521760
  * Let update-alternatives fix a manual alternative with a dangling symlink
    by switching it to automatic mode. Closes: #529999

    Andersson <email address hidden>. Closes: #532769
  * Fix english mistake (“as you request” → “as you requested”) in several
    places. Thanks to David Stansby for the patch. Closes: #533171
  * Support tags before symbols in symbols file contained in source packages.
    The first two tags are "optional" (use it to not fail if the symbol might
    disappear from the library without breaking the ABI) and "arch" to
    restrict the set of architectures where the symbol is supposed to exist.
    Thanks to Modestas Vainius <email address hidden> for the patch.
    See dpkg-gensymbols(1) for more information. Closes: #521551
  * Do not include #MISSING lines in symbols files integrated in binary
    packages. Closes: #526251
  * Assume an implicit version of "Base" for all unversioned symbols
    that are merged into a SymbolFi...
