casper 1.376 source package in Ubuntu


casper (1.376) xenial; urgency=medium

  * scripts/casper-bottom/13swap: Don't add detected swap partitions to the
    live system's fstab, just swapon it. This avoids creating *.swap units for
    those which automatically trigger whenever partman re-creates swap
    partitions, as this races with partman's own swapon (while it's
    indistinguishable from a hotplug/early boot event in systemd). By
    disabling the fstab entries we disable that automatic start of swap
    partitions, as a relatively unintrusive bandaid for the final release.
    (LP: #1552539)
  * hooks/casper: Copy swapon into the casper initrd for the above.
