Bug Description


these tests require, and modify, grub. That fails on s390x on xenial because it does not use grub.

[test case]

run the autopkgtests for xenial on s390x

[regression potential]

low; only skipping test cases on s390x.

[other info]

in bionic and later, systemd-fsckd has support for zipl (s390x bootloader) and cmdline-upstart-boot is removed.

re: autopkgtests, a few failed, but I re-ran them and they passed on the re-run.

  * d/t/systemd-fsckd, d/t/cmdline-upstart-boot:
    - skip on s390x; requires grub (LP: #1830477)
  * d/p/ask-password-prevent-buffer-overrow-when-reading-fro.patch:
    - prevent buffer overflow when reading keyring (LP: #1814373)

  [ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
  * Specify Ubuntu's Vcs-Git

  [ Balint Reczey ]
  * Append /snap/bin to default PATH.
    Snapd ships snapd-env-generator, but systemd does not not support
    environment generators. Hard-coding /snap/bin is less risky than
    backporting environment generator support and since snaps are considered
    to be first class packages on Ubuntu /snap/bin can safely added to
    the default PATH. (LP: #1771858)

  [ Ioanna Alifieraki ]
  * d/p/systemctl-Replace-check_one_unit-by-get_state_one_un.patch
    - Backport upstream PR#2768 needed for next patch
  * d/p/systemctl-load-unit-if-needed-in-systemctl-is-active.patch
    - Backport upstream PR#7997 to fix alias service reports inactive while
      aliased is active (LP: #1828892)
