Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

The attached branches adds support for ubiquity to use partman-uboot on armel+dove. partman-uboot adds checks to confirm the partitioning layout is acceptable for boards using uboot to properly startup during manual partitioning and also properly passes options to mkfs.ext2 so that u-boot will be able to read the resulting filesystem in all cases. In addition, changes to partman-auto are desired to have it use uboot filesystem over pure ext2.

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.0.1

ubiquity (2.0.1) karmic; urgency=low

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Check to see whether X crashed or ubiquity crashed before attempting
    to bail into the noninteractive frontend from only-ubiquity mode
    (LP: #444901).
  * Wrap the format warning label while working around GTK+ label layout
    problems (LP: #364617).

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Rewrite X_LOADTEMPLATEFILE commands in case they refer to template files
    in the /target chroot (LP: #452118).
  * Install -generic-pae kernels if necessary; this requires some custom
    hacks since -generic-pae isn't in the live filesystem (LP: #413135).
  * Don't do kernel installation/removal in oem-config.
  * Skip partition_too_small check during Wubi installs, as Wubi does some
    of its own checks and the delay imposed by this check looks particularly
    weird in Wubi. This may or may not be the cause of apparent hangs
    towards the end of partitioning, but I suspect that it will at least get
    rid of some conflated reports and make testing quicker.
  * Update translations from Launchpad.
  * Automatic update of included source packages: clock-setup 0.98ubuntu3,
    flash-kernel 2.13ubuntu13, grub-installer 1.43ubuntu6, partman-auto
    89ubuntu2, partman-target 64ubuntu4.

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * Mythbuntu: Don't allow "removing" LIRC as it's not supported with install.

  [ Roman Shtylman ]
  * Fixed India timezone map (LP: #453009)

  [ Michael Casadevall ]
  * Added support for partman-uboot in ubiquity (LP: #455713)
