This is a major update, fixing most of the important bugs in the Debian bug tracker. Due to the scope of these changes and potential for regressions, I've labelled this a release candidate, 0.121~rc2. (If you're wondering what happened to rc1, that had 'unstable' as the distribution, which I didn't notice until after pushing the tag.)
This is currently only available in git and at <https://people.debian.org/~benh/packages/>, as the Debian upload is stuck in binary-NEW. The major changes are: - Split initramfs-tools binary packages into core and automation hooks, to allow for coinstallation of the core with other initramfs builders - Fail at build-time if busybox is wanted but not found - Rewrite build-time block device sysfs lookup to be generic - Include modules for all components of a multi-disk device - Use blkid to resolve LABEL=, UUID=, PARTLABEL= and PARTUUID= block device IDs at boot time, and do this much later - Change file copying to distinguish executables from other file types and to preserve symlinks - Run panic scripts just before dropping to a shell Ben. And the git shortlog: Andy Whitcroft (2): Add 2>&1 to the run-init line. When adding i8042 also add psmouse as some keyboards are behind the mouse.
