106. By St├ęphane Graber on 2013-07-18

Always use grub-efi-amd64-signed on 64bit UEFI systems instead of
relying on SecureBoot detection. (LP: #1184297)

105. By Jonathan Riddell on 2013-07-10

update_grub() used a variable called $update_grub, change name
to $update_grub_cmd to prevent this clash. LP: #1171099

104. By Colin Watson on 2013-02-18

Fix code that transfers user boot parameters into target system to work
even when grub-pc is already installed, as in the case of installing
with a live filesystem (LP: #664526).

103. By Colin Watson on 2012-10-09

* Ensure appropriate package removals if grub-efi-amd64-signed is
* Remove grub-efi-amd64-signed if grub-efi is selected.

102. By Colin Watson on 2012-10-08

If the SecureBoot EFI variable is set, then install
grub-efi-amd64-signed rather than grub-efi, along with shim-signed if

101. By Colin Watson on 2012-09-24

Fix incorrect test for whether to bind-mount /sys (LP: #1054323).

100. By Colin Watson on 2012-09-20

Don't try to use local outside a function (LP: #1053317).

99. By Colin Watson on 2012-09-19

* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - Show the grub menu and raise the menu timeout if other operating
    systems are installed (only for GRUB Legacy right now).
  - Remove splash boot parameter unless debian-installer/framebuffer=true
    and debian-installer/splash=true.
  - If / or /boot are on a removable device, install GRUB there by
  - Support setting OVERRIDE_UNSUPPORTED_OS in the environment to force
    grub-installer to use its default MBR selection method despite there
    being unsupported operating systems on the disk.
  - Handle cases where /boot is bind-mounted.
  - Add support for writing an GRUB Legacy MBR on each disk in an
    mdadm-managed RAID providing /boot. (GRUB 2 can handle this already.)
  - Properly make use of output from os-prober to configure the booting of
    other operating systems on dmraid arrays. Attempt to guess where in
    the device map the array belongs, by substituting the first drive in
    the dmraid array for the dmraid array device node itself, and removing
    any reference to other member disks of the array.
  - Go back to using update-grub -y for GRUB Legacy for now; our grub
    package is a bit old and still requires this.
  - Allow grub/grub2 choice for ext4, though still default to grub2.
  - If /boot is on an MD device and we're using GRUB 2, install GRUB there
    rather than (hd0); GRUB 2 will interpret that as meaning that it needs
    to install to each of the RAID members.
  - If using GRUB 2 and installing to a RAID device any of whose
    components are partitions, then default to installing to the MBRs of
    each of the containing disks, since GRUB 2 will refuse to install to
    the partition devices.
  - On i386/efi and amd64/efi subarchitectures, install grub-efi and purge
    grub, grub-legacy, and grub-pc; elsewhere, purge grub-efi*.
  - Add a preseedable grub-installer/timeout template to adjust the
    initial GRUB timeout.
  - Install GRUB to the SATA RAID or multipath device when /boot is on
    such a device, rather than installing to the first hard disk.
  - Remove grub-gfxpayload-lists in situations where we need to remove
  - Remove 'quiet' from target system command line if
    debian-installer/quiet is set to false.
  - When /boot is on a loopback device (i.e. Wubi), install GRUB there.
  - Simplify /proc and /sys mounting; make sure they're consistently
    mounted for the entire life of grub-installer, and consistently
    unmounted on exit.
  - Only process the output of os-prober into boot menu entries if we're
    actually going to use them; if we're using GRUB 2 and os-prober is
    installed, then it will deal with this itself and do a better job of
* Drop grub-installer/bootdev_directory preseeding. Wubi no longer uses
  this, and we no longer care about grub4dos.

98. By Colin Watson on 2012-04-11

Update Ubuntu-specific translations from Launchpad.

97. By Adam Conrad on 2011-09-29

Remove spurious newline from debian/po/bs.po, fixing ubiquity FTBFS.
