  1. Check that directory path is not too long (found by Coverity).

    rwmjones committed Feb 29, 2012
    Since we copy dirname + "/" + path to a fixed buffer of size PATH_MAX,
    we need to check that the buffer cannot overflow.

  1. Eliminate duplicate entries from package list

    hillu committed Feb 11, 2012
    "apt-cache depends --recurse -i ..." on Ubuntu 12.04 (apt
    0.8.16~exp12ubuntu3) outputs duplicate entries which broke the code
    that checks whether all package files have been successfully
    downloaded. I am not sure if this is a bug in apt.

  1. helper: fix no-op add_link function

    Jim Meyering committed Jan 10, 2012
    * helper/ext2cpio.c (add_link): Don't leak just-allocated buffer.
    Instead, link it into links_head list.
  2. helper: plug two small leaks

    Jim Meyering committed Jan 10, 2012
    * helper/ext2initrd.c (read_module_deps): Don't leak filename.
    (ext2_make_initrd): Don't leak "outfile".
    * helper/utils.c (load_file): Don't leak a file pointer.

    Yet Another Bug caused by lack of strong typing and nullable types in
    this sad excuse for a programming language.

  2. ubuntu: Remove '*:i386' (multiarch?) packages.

    rwmjones committed Oct 18, 2011
    This is a hack.  Unclear if this is really needed or what it does, but
    it fixes Ubuntu 11.10 builds for me.
  3. debian: Fix Debian package handler when --use-installed not given.

    rwmjones committed Oct 18, 2011
    If there is no --use-installed option, then it didn't download all the
    packages (only the ones not installed).  But this failed later when it
    tried to unpack the packages that hadn't been downloaded.
    Thus download all the packages if !use_installed.
  4. debian: Get installed package list in the ph_init handler.

    rwmjones committed Oct 18, 2011
    Use the Debian ph_init handler to get the list of installed
  5. Don't pass use_installed to every package handler function.

    rwmjones committed Oct 18, 2011
    use_installed is a global variable (defined in febootstrap_cmdline.mli)
    so there's not much point in passing it around to every function that
    needs it.  This commit removes the optional argument in favour of just
    using the global variable in each package handler.
    However we still need a place where we can bail if the --use-installed
    flag is used for package handlers which don't support this yet.
    Thus add a ph_init function is called after the right package handler
    has been detected but before it is used.  This is a convenient place
    to put the --use-installed checking and any other initialization that
    is required.

  1. debian: Don't always try to run dpkg-query command.

    rwmjones committed Oct 14, 2011
    Delay calling this until after debian_detect() has been called and
    we've decided to use the Debian backend.  Otherwise this breaks
    non-dpkg backends.
    This fixes commit b8cea46.
  2. Version 3.11.

  3. Find package dependencies fix for pacman.

    eriknolte committed with rwmjones Oct 6, 2011
    Since the pactree utility only accepts one package name, we must iterate
    through the packages rather than specify them all on the command line.
    To avoid errors when febootstrap is run on a system with outdated packages,
    use ls and awk on the febootstrap package cache directory rather than using
    the host's outdated pacman database.
  4. Replace ArchLinux module detection with generic method.

    eriknolte committed with rwmjones Oct 6, 2011
    ArchLinux used to keep its kernel in /boot/vmlinuz26 but, with
    Linux 3.0, now uses /boot/vmlinuz-linux.  Instead of just changing the
    kernel filename and module directory, this change removes the ArchLinux
    specific code, lets febootstrap find a kernel, and then computes the
    module directory from the version string extracted from the actual kernel
  5. helper/init: Handle compressed modules transparently.

    eriknolte committed with rwmjones Oct 6, 2011
    Detect libz and, if present, define HAS_LIBZ and add -lz to Makefile's
    LIBS variable.
    Add entry on optional zlib package requirement.
    Detect both uncompressed and gzipped kernel modules.
    Some Linux distros (like ArchLinux) use gzipped kernel modules with
    filenames like ext2.ko.gz.  This change modifies the filename pattern
    from (e.g.) "ext2.ko" to "ext2.ko*".
    When available, use libz to read the module.
    The init_module system call requires uncompressed kernel module bytes.
    On some systems (e.g. ArchLinux) the modules are gzipped on disk.
    Libz is used to read and uncompress gzipped disk files (*.ko.gz) or
    transparently read uncompressed modules (*.ko).

  1. Use ext2fs_close2 API if available to avoid unnecessary fsync.

    rwmjones committed Sep 23, 2011
    This saves over 5 seconds during the slow path construction of the
    The ext2fs_close2 API is present in the e2fsprogs 'next' branch and
    will be in a later e2fsprogs release (thanks Ted Ts'o).
