Debian Installer Stretch rc2 release

Beitrag von KBDCALLS » 02.02.2017 10:35:56

Der Stretch Installer ist als rc2 am 2. Februar 2017 erschienen.
The Debian Installer team[1] is pleased to announce the second release
candidate of the installer for Debian 9 "Stretch".

Important change in this release of the installer

* A major update of os-prober was included in this release. This
component is responsible for finding other operating systems so
that entries can be added to the bootloader's menu. This update
should fix serious bugs, some of which leading to file system
corruption, but might also trigger some regressions. As usual,
running "reportbug os-prober" from the installed system lets you
report any issues.

Improvements in this release

* debian-installer:
- Bump Linux kernel version from 4.8.0-2 to 4.9.0-1.
- Adjust *.so files handling (Debian Bugreport851790).
* os-prober:
- Improve logging of mounting and setting partitions to ro/rw.
- Use a read-only device-mapper entry when appropriate.
- Skip partition when FS type is LVM2_member (Debian Bugreport853277).
- Make os-prober-udeb depend on grub-mount-udeb, and make
os-prober depend on grub-common, so that grub-mount is
consistently available (Debian Bugreport776275).
- Fix detection of /usr partition as a GNU/Linux root partition
when /lib* directories are moved to /usr completely (Debian Bugreport698733).
- Make the yaboot parser more tolerant (Debian Bugreport674561).
- Call dmraid only once.
- Add os-release support (Debian Bugreport794409).
- Work harder to avoid trying to mount extended partitions
(Debian Bugreport784709).
- Drop " (loader)" suffixes on Microsoft operating systems
(Debian Bugreport787418).
- For more improvements, see: Debian Bugreport698598, Debian Bugreport694668, Debian Bugreport803155, Debian Bugreport801631,
Debian Bugreport851983.

Hardware support changes

* debian-installer:
- Drop armel/versatile flavour since kernel support was removed.
- mips*: install all NIC modules in the netbood initrd.
* flash-kernel:
- Add machine db entry for Pine64+.
* linux:
- udeb: Add switch (DSA) drivers to nic-modules (Debian Bugreport845075).

Localization status

* 75 languages are supported in this release.
* Full translation for 12 of them.
