  • a/pkgtools-14.2-noarch-9.txz
    In setup.80.make-bootdisk, create a first bootable active primary partition
    rather than using a filesystem on the unpartitioned device. Some BIOSes
    won't boot it otherwise. Thanks to Richard Narron.

  • a/grub-2.00-x86_64-5.txz
    Use correct GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY option in /etc/default/grub.new.
    Thanks to Eugen Wissner.
  • a/mkinitrd-1.4.8-x86_64-7.txz
    Fixed detecting USB partition in init, added proper USB storage modules
    to mkinitrd, and added missing USB keyboard modules to
    mkinitrd_command_generator.sh to fix entering LUKS password with some
    newer USB keyboards. Thanks to Eric Hameleers.
  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.0-noarch-33.txz
    rc.S: In cryptsetup script, support supplying a password of “none”
    (interactive entry) for non-swap partitions to allow specifying additional
    options. Support a new option “discard” to pass the –allow-discards option
    to cryptsetup when unlocking a volume, which can potentially improve
    performance and longevity on some SSDs. Thanks to Nathan Wallace.
  • ap/lxc-2.0.1-x86_64-4.txz
    Merged rc.S changes.
  • n/NetworkManager-1.2.2-x86_64-2.txz
    Install udev rules in the correct directory. Thanks to gmgf.
  • n/samba-4.4.4-x86_64-3.txz
    When installing, move any files existing in /etc/samba/private to
    /var/lib/samba/private, not just *.tdb files.
    Thanks to Maciej Goluchowski.
  • n/vsftpd-3.0.3-x86_64-3.txz
    Patched to handle NULL returns from recent glibc crypt(). Thanks to nixi.
