Hi devfsd was essentially unmaintained until I adopted it. It was already frozen at that point. My upload fixed lots of bugs and the package has stabilized in unstable now (apart from localisations which keep dripping in). I uploaded something to t-p-u a while ago, it can be ignored, i didn't know what to do to get devfsd updated in testing when I made that upload. Changes relative to version in testing: devfsd (1.3.25-19) unstable; urgency=low * added po-debconf i18n for my single template, closes: #271943 - build depend on debhelper (>= 4.1.16) - run debconf-updatepo in clean target * added german l13n. -- Arthur Korn <firstname.lastname@example.org> Thu, 16 Sep 2004 16:02:03 +0200 devfsd (1.3.25-18) unstable; urgency=high * Fixed another [ a -a b ] in init.d (=> #148945) * fix upgrades, closes: #269299, #269393 - revert to alt default/devfsd (MOUNT=no) - dont stop devfsd in prerm * make people aware that they are _not_ using devfs just by installing devfsd - added section on the ways to mount devfs on boot to README.Debian - display a notice with debconf on install pointing this out. * fix update-devfsd - update-devfsd does a force-reload (reload) with -n and a restart with -f - update-devfsd uses invoke-rc.d instead of calling the init-script directly * made the Description more helpful to avoid that people install devfsd who don't need it at all (which obviously is the case now). * tried to fix up purges. Purges can't really work since there seems to be no way to unmount devfs (it is being used). So until the user reboots his system is a bit broken (mainly wrt new devices by newly loaded modules). * spell-checked a couple of files (README.Debian, control, templates) * init.d: handle the case a bit better where there is no devfs mounted -- Arthur Korn <email@example.com> Wed, 1 Sep 2004 15:10:17 +0200 devfsd (1.3.25-17) unstable; urgency=high **** Fixes lots of issues with module auto loading **** I couldn't test all of this, untested stuff marked with "!" * Took over package, thanks Russell for your work. * include modprobe.devfs as /etc/modprobe.d/devfs, closes: #218258, #186752, #187681, #205459 * added debhelper token to debian/preinst * corrected build-dependency on debhelper to version >= 3 !* MKOLDCOMPAT: don't restrict fixing devname for ida/ devices to part* closes: #257675 * usind dh_installinit to put the init script into place. Installing start links in every runlevel, so devfsd should always be running. Removed duplicate calls to update-rc.d in maintainer scripts. closes: #136751, #147127, #241704 * changed perms of RTC to root.root 0664, closes: #173223 !* modutils/1devfs: added aliases for new-style SCSI devices (/dev/scsi/*), closes: #200043 * added alias /dev/misc/psaux => psmouse, closes: #202810 * rewrote init script, closes: #151620, #200479 !* in modules.devfs and modprobe.devfs added "ide-detect" alongside "ide-probe-mod", hope this fixes ide probing on kernels >=2.4.22, else reopen please, closes: #211912 * modprobe.devfs: opening input/mice triggers probe of all available input drivers that are not hotplugged (ie usb and bluetooth devices are not in the probe), closes: #218316 * compat_symlinks: workaround for microcode driver, cpu/microcode -> misc/microcode * restricted vc/* devices to root.tty 660, closes: #226755 * changed group of agpgart devices to video (was audio), closes: #241718 * don't use "[ a -a b ]" and "[ a -o b ]" anymore, closes: #261474 !* added sonipy to modprobe, modules and perms, closes: #148945 !* added usb/rio500 to perms, closes: #157231 !* added scsigenericperms.so which keeps the access mode of sg devices in sync with the master device. Thanks a lot to Steve Haslam who did the work closes: #161235 !* properly set the permissions for the /dev/cciss/disc[0-9]+/ directories, closes: #238496 * don't set symlinks from symlinks.d anymore. !* fixed a type on modules.devfs (s/hic/hid/), hid is probed when mice are requested now. closes: #164373 -- Arthur Korn <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sun, 29 Aug 2004 20:27:32 +0200 ciao, 2ri -- Secure email, spread GPG, clearsign all mail. http://www.gnupg.org .
