Proposed updates for discover1 (mostly from Ubuntu)
During the debian-edu devcamp this weekend, I finally found time to
sit down and have a look at the discover1 patches from ubuntu. I've
integrated the vendor default driver patch, and also started to use
the LSB functions in the init.d script. I also applied the sbus fix
from BTS, and hope this will improve sparc support.
These are the latest changelog entries:
discover1 (1.7.9) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
* Petter Reinholdtsen
- Add vendor fallthroughs for PCI cards; use a given driver for
all cards from a given vendor we don't already have an explicit
entry for. Only pick defaults of the same class as the device
at hand. Patches from Daniel Stone and Ubuntu. (Closes: #313072)
- Add support for several sbus root notes. Patch from Jurij Smakov.
- Convert init.d script to use Linux Software Base functions. Add
dependency on lsb-base. Based on patches from Nathaniel
McCallum and Ubuntu.
- Fix bug in init.d script, making get_aliases_regexp() handle
modules with several aliases properly, and also handle device
path aliases better.
Any comments to these changes? I am a bit unsure if the added
lsb-base dependency will affect the installation system (do
debootstrap need to change?). I do not think so, but would like to
get a second opinion before I upload the new version.
Any comments? Any more fixes to include before I upload a new version
in the next few days?
