74. By Colin Watson on 2010-04-13

Add armel/omap subarchitecture.

73. By Colin Watson on 2010-03-30

Handle armel metapackages in ordering hack (imx51, dove, and omap).

72. By Colin Watson on 2010-03-19

Add support for preempt kernel flavour on amd64 (LP: #541625).

71. By Colin Watson on 2010-02-23

Add base-installer/kernel/backports-modules template, which may be
preseeded to install selected linux-backports-modules-packages
(LP: #526422).

70. By Colin Watson on 2010-02-04

* Backport from trunk:
  - Ensure that Acquire::cdrom::AutoDetect is disabled when running
    apt-cdrom. We bind-mount /target/cdrom, so apt's new libudev-based
    autodetection isn't needed during installation.

69. By Colin Watson on 2009-12-04

Explicitly ignore Recommends while installing the kernel. We don't want
to install bootloaders at this point.

68. By Colin Watson on 2009-12-03

* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - Use and depend on the Ubuntu keyring.
  - Enable the restricted component by default, unless
    apt-setup/restricted is preseeded to false.
  - Set up the default sources.list to look in -updates and -security (the
    latter from apt-setup/security_host) as well as the unadorned suite;
    also -proposed if apt-setup/proposed is true.
  - Use Ubuntu kernel image names.
  - Allow preseeding base-installer/kernel/override-image to force a given
    kernel to be used.
  - Install busybox-initramfs rather than busybox.
  - Revert Joey's patch to call base-installer.d hooks after running
    debootstrap, which broke console-setup's expectation of being able to
    insert its configuration file into /target before console-setup is
    installed by debootstrap.
  - Add armel/imx51 and armel/dove subarchitectures.
  - Prefer PAE kernels on machines with >3GB of RAM.
  - Install kernel headers to match the kernel. This may be overridden by
    setting base-installer/kernel/headers to false.
* Remove all traces of lpia, which is being decommissioned (see
  https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/mobile-lucid-lpia-future).

67. By Colin Watson on 2009-10-13

Install kernel headers to match the kernel (LP: #413135). This may be
overridden by setting base-installer/kernel/headers to false.

66. By Colin Watson on 2009-09-23

* Resynchronise with Debian (STANZAS addition fixes LP: #435376).
  Remaining changes:
  - Use and depend on the Ubuntu keyring.
  - Enable the restricted component by default, unless
    apt-setup/restricted is preseeded to false.
  - Set up the default sources.list to look in -updates and -security (the

    also -proposed if apt-setup/proposed is true.
  - Use Ubuntu kernel image names.

  - Add armel/imx51 and armel/dove subarchitectures.
  - Prefer PAE kernels on machines with >3GB of RAM.

65. By Colin Watson on 2009-09-23

Use DMI information if possible to determine memory size (LP: #413135).
