 kernel-package (10.051) unstable; urgency=low
   * Bug fix: "kernel-package: When overwriting modules, bad suggestion on
     moving modules dir", thanks to Dylan Thurston       (Closes: #379434).
   * With this release of kernel package, changes have been made to the
     specification and behaviour of hook scripts for the kernel image,
     source, and header packages. Now relative paths can be used to specify
     the names of scripts, as long as these scripts live in a "safe" path,
     namely, /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin. Also, the sanity checking
     has gotten more rigorous, failure to find a hook script or failure for
     the script to execute correctly is now a fatal error.
   * Bug fix: "forces absolute paths in /etc/kernel-img.conf *_hook
     variables", thanks to Robert Millan. I elected not to use the patch
     provided, since I did not want to blindly trust the PATH variable, and
     wanted also to change the ignoring of the return value of the
     scripts.                                               (Closes: #380338).
   * Bug fix: "linux-image-2.6.16-2-k7-smp: upgrade re-ran lilo", thanks to
     Ross BoylanThe default behaviour of the postinst script has been to
     run the built in default bootloader (typically lilo) -- set at compile
     time, based on the arch. The installed default for Debian, however,
     has since moved on to be grub. However, users who are transitioning to
     grub may not have set the configuration variable in
     /etc/kernel-img.conf --and may still have lilo installed. The trick is
     to figure out whether they really want to run lilo. So, if there is no
     /etc/lilo.conf, we run nothing. If the user has explicitly asked to
     run lilo, we rin lilo. Or if there is no grub, or if there is no
     postinst hook script, we run lilo. Or else, we ask the user.
                                                              (Closes: #380292).
