* Wed Feb 11 2015 puzelAATTsuse.com- Update to parted-3.2; Notable changes: - Added new partition type flag, esp, to set the type to 0xEF on MS-DOS. Also aliased to boot on GPT to set the UEFI ESP GUID. - You can now choose to ignore errors about partitions that overlap, or are longer than the disk. This allows you to use parted to repair the problem. - When attempting to manipulate a mounted partition, parted now issues a warning that you can choose to ignore, instead of an error. - When creating a loop label, it automatically comes with a partition using the whole disk. - parted -l no longer lists device-mapper devices other than dmraid whole disks. - Added new Linux-specific partition GUID type code (0FC63DAF-8483-4772-8E79-3D69D8477DE4) for Linux filesystem data on GPT disks. This type code is now assigned as the default partition type code for new partitions holding Linux filesystems. - Added new \"msftdata\" flag to identify partitions holding NTFS or FAT filesystems on GPT disks. This flag corresponds to a GPT type code of EBD0A0A2-B9E5-4433-87C0-68B6B72699C7 (\"Microsoft Basic Data\"). Since Linux filesystem partitions formerly used this type code, this flag may optionally be set on Linux partitions to make the partition table type codes match former configurations in case the new Linux filesystem type code causes problems with some utility. Note that this flag cannot be removed from NTFS or FAT partitions within parted except by setting a competing flag, such as \"boot\" (which sets the type code used by EFI System partitions) or \"msftres\" (which sets the \"Microsoft Reserved\" type code). - Many bugfixes (see /usr/share/doc/packages/parted/NEWS)- merge parted-fix-cciss-partition-naming.patch, libparted-fix-mmcblk-partition-name.patch, fix-dm-partition-name.patch into libparted-partition-naming.patch- Add parted-resize-alias-to-resizepart.patch- Add libparted-avoid-libdevice-mapper-warnings.patch- drop patches (in upstream): - fix-error-informing-the-kernel.patch - Fix-help-text-for-disk_-set-toggle.patch - libparted-Avoid-dasd-as-default-disk-type-while-probe.patch - libparted-add-support-for-EAV-DASD-partitions.patch - libparted-add-support-for-implicit-FBA-DASD-partition.patch - libparted-copy-pmbr_boot-when-duplicating-GPT-disk.patch - libparted-initialize-dasd-part-type.patch - libparted-mklabel-to-support-EAV-DASD.patch - libparted-mklabel-to-support-EDEV-DASD.patch - parted-Add-Intel-Rapid-Start-Technology-partition.patch - parted-GPT-add-support-for-PReP-GUID.patch - parted-btrfs-support.patch - parted-resize-command.patch- drop do-not-create-dm-nodes.patch: Not needed anymore since parted DM handling has been reworked.- modified more-reliable-informing-the-kernel.patch: No longer call \'udevadm settle\' as it was causing issues.- add patches from upstream (post-3.2): - lib-fs-resize-prevent-crash-resizing-FAT16.patch - libparted-device-mapper-uses-512b-sectors.patch - parted-dont-crash-in-disk_set-when-disk-label-not-found.patch- refresh patches

* Wed Jan 08 2014 puzelAATTsuse.com- update to parted-3.1 (fate#316110)- changes in parted-3.1:
* Changes in behavior - Floppy drives are no longer scanned on linux: they cannot be partitioned anyhow, and some users have a misconfigured BIOS that claims to have a floppy when they don\'t, and scanning gets hung up. - parted: the mkpart command has changed semantics with regard to specifying the end of the partition. If the end is specified using units of MiB, GiB, etc., parted subtracts one sector from the specified value. With this change, it is now possible to create partitions like 1MiB-2MiB, 2MiB-3MiB and so on.
* Many bugfixes (see changelog)- changes in parted-3.0:
* Changes in behavior - Remove all FS-related (file system-related) sub-commands; these commands are no longer recognized because they were all dependent on parted \"knowing\" too much about file system: mkpartfs, mkfs, cp, move, check. - \'resize\' command changed semantics: it no longer resizes the filesystem, but only moves end sector of the partition- libparted-devel contains libparted-fs-resize library- add ability to change size of the partition (ignoring contained filesystem) with \'resize\' command; this command has different semantics than the former \'resize\' command which upstream decided to drop - parted-resize-command.patch (fate#316110)- when using syncmbr on POWER, make the first partition type 0x41 (PReP boot) (bnc#797485) - add libparted-ppc-prepboot-in-syncmbr.patch- support for PReP GUID (bnc#797485) - parted-GPT-add-support-for-PReP-GUID.patch- Build requires makeinfo- drop fix-function-def.patch (not needed)- drop parted-stdio.h.patch (not needed)- drop parted-use-ext-range.patch (upstream)- drop fix-nilfs2-probe-function.patch (upstream)- drop parted-improve-loop-support.patch (upstream)- drop always-resize-part.dif (FS support removed)- merged following hybrid pMBR patches: parted-gpt-mbr-sync.patch, parted-gpt-sync-mbr-label.patch, parted-fix-gpt-sync-on-BE-systems.patch

* Thu May 19 2011 puzelAATTnovell.com- update to parted-2.4
* Bug fixes - parted no longer allows the modification of certain in-use partitions. In particular, before this fix, parted would permit removal or modification of any in-use partition on a dmraid and any in-use partition beyond the 15th on a regular scsi disk. - Improve support of DASD devices on the s390 architecture. Parted now supports all DASD types (CKD and FBA), DASD formats (CDL, LDL, CMS non-reserved, and CMS reserved), and DASD drivers (ECKD, FBA, and DIAG) in all combinations supported by the Linux kernel. As before, only CDL format on CKD DASD using the ECKD driver is supported for read-write operations (create, delete, move, re-size, etc.). However, the implicit partition present on LDL- and CMS-formatted disks is now correctly recognized for read-only operations. In detail: - parted now correctly handles LDL-format disks with a block size other than 4096 (bug fix) - parted now recognizes the CMS disk format, both reserved and non-reserved (enhancement) - parted now supports FBA DASD devices (enhancement) - parted now supports the DIAG driver when running in a virtual machine under z/VM (enhancement) - libparted: raise the limit on the maximum start sector and the maximum number of sectors in a \"loop\" partition table from 2^32 to 2^64. - libparted once again recognizes a whole-disk FAT partition - libparted now recognizes scsi disks with a high major (128-135) as scsi disks - an msdos partition table on a very small device (smaller than one cylinder) is now recognized. - libparted: zero-length devices (other than files) are ignored rather than throwing an exception. - libparted: gpt label creation can no longer divide by zero with a defective device or when a concurrent writer modifies the PE-size bytes in the small interval between the write and subsequent read of the primary GPT header.
* Changes in behavior - \"parted $dev print\" now prints information about the device (model, size, transport, sector size) even when it fails to recognize the disk label. - specifying partition start or end values using MiB, GiB, etc. suffixes now makes parted do what I want, i.e., use that precise value, and not some other that is up to 500KiB or 500MiB away from what I specified. Before, to get that behavior, you would have had to use carefully chosen values with units of bytes (\"B\") or sectors (\"s\") to obtain the same result, and with sectors, your usage would not be portable between devices with varying sector sizes. This change does not affect how parted handles suffixes like KB, MB, GB, etc.- drop always_print_geom.diff (merged upstream)
* Thu Dec 09 2010 puzelAATTnovell.com- add more-reliable-informing-the-kernel.patch (bnc#657360)
* Tue Nov 09 2010 puzelAATTnovell.com- updated always_print_geom.diff to print also physical/logical sector size (patch by Arvin Schnell)

* Wed Aug 11 2010 puzelAATTnovell.com- update parted-type.patch (bnc#630009)
* Thu Jul 08 2010 puzelAATTnovell.com- update to parted-2.3 - parted now recognizes ATA over Ethernet (AoE) devices - parted now recognizes Linux Software RAID Arrays - libparted has a new partition flag to check for diagnostic (aka recovery or reserved) partitions: PED_PARTITION_DIAG - When libparted deferenced a /dev/mapper/foo symlink, it would keep the resulting /dev/dm-N name and sometimes use it later, even though it had since become stale and invalid. It no longer stores the result of dereferencing a /dev/mapper symlink. - libparted\'s msdos_partition_is_flag_available function now always reports that the \"hidden\" flag is not available for an extended partition. Similarly, msdos_partition_get_flag(p,PED_PARTITION_HIDDEN) always returns 0 for an extended partition. - libparted uses a more accurate heuristic to distinguish between ext4 and ext3 partitions. - libparted now properly checks the return value of dm_task_run when operating on devicemapper devices. - allow using ped_device_cache_remove(dev) followed by a (later) ped_device_destroy() without corrupting the device cache. - when creating an ext2 file system, Parted no longer creates an invalid one when its size is 2TiB or larger.- drop etherd_support.diff (included upstream)- drop parted-remove-experimental-warning.patch (included upstream)- drop make-align-check-work-in-interactive-mode.patch (included upstream)- drop parted-no-inttypes-include (not needed)- refresh all remaining patches
* Wed Jun 30 2010 puzelAATTnovell.com- update make-align-check-work-in-interactive-mode.patch to be consistent with upstream
* Mon Jun 28 2010 jengelhAATTmedozas.de- use %_smp_mflags

* Fri Apr 02 2010 puzelAATTnovell.com- add parted-remove-experimental-warning.patch- refresh always_print_geom.diff to apply at correct function
* Fri Feb 26 2010 puzelAATTnovell.com- update to parted-2.2 - Changes in behavior - The default alignment (--align option) for newly created partitions has been changed to optimal. - New features - The ped_device_get_
*_alignment() functions now return a sane default value instead of NULL when the so called topology information is incomplete. The default minimum alignment aligns to physical sector size, the default optimal alignment is 1MiB, which is what vista and windows 7 do. - Bug fixes - Parted no longer uses a physical sector size of 0 or of any other value smaller than the logical sector size. - dos: creating an HFS or HFS+ partition in an msdos partition table used to set the partition type to 0x83. That is wrong. The required number is 0xaf, and that is what is used now. - gpt: read-only operation could clobber MBR part of hybrid GPT+MBR table [bug introduced in parted-2.1] - gpt: a read-only operation like \"parted $dev print\" would overwrite $dev\'s protective MBR when exactly one of the primary and backup GPT tables was found to be corrupt. [bug introduced prior to parted-1.8.0] - sun: the version, sanity and nparts VTOC fields were ignored by libparted. Those fields are properly initialized now. The nparts (number of partitions) field is initialized to 8 (max. number of sun partitions) rather that to a real number of partitions. This solution is compatible with Linux kernel and Linux fdisk. - libparted: try harder to inform kernel of partition changes. Previously when editing partitions, occasionally the kernel would fail to be informed of partition changes. When this happened future problems would occur because the kernel had incorrect information. For example, if this problem arose when resizing or creating a new partition, then an incorrect partition size might be displayed or a user might encounter a failure to format or delete a newly created partition, respectively. - libparted: committing a disk that was returned by ped_disk_duplicate would always result in ped_disk_clobber being called (and thus the first and last 9KiB of the disk being zeroed), even if the duplicated disk, was not returned by ped_disk_fresh().- drop do-not-install-test-programs.patch (fixed in upstream)
* Wed Feb 17 2010 puzelAATTnovell.com- add do-not-install-test-programs.patch - avoid deleting this in specfile
* Mon Feb 01 2010 puzelAATTnovell.com- update to parted-2.1 (noteworthy changes)
* New features - new --align= commandline option which can have the following values: - none: Use the minimum alignment allowed by the disk type - cylinder: Align partitions to cylinders (the default) - minimal: Use minimum alignment as given by the disk topology information - optimal: Use optimum alignment as given by the disk topology information The minimal and optimal values will use layout information provided by the disk to align the logical partition table addresses to actual physical blocks on the disks. The minimal value uses the minimum alignment needed to align the partition properly to physical blocks, which avoids performance degradation. Where as the optimal value uses a multiple of the physical block size in a way that guarantees optimal performance. The min and opt values will only work when compiled with libblkid >= 2.17 and running on a kernel >= 2.6.31, otherwise they will behave as the none --align value. - Parted now supports disks with sector size larger than 512 bytes. Before this release, parted could operate only on disks with a sector size of 512 bytes. However, disk manufacturers are already making disks with an exposed hardware sector size of 4096 bytes. Prior versions of parted cannot even read a partition table on such a device, not to mention create or manipulate existing partition tables. Due to internal design and time constraints, the following less-common partition table types are currently disabled: - amiga, bsd, aix, pc98 - new command \"align-check TYPE N\" to determine whether the starting sector of partition N is TYPE(minimal|optimal)-aligned for the disk. The same libblkid and kernel version requirements apply as for --align
* Bug fixes - parted can once again create partition tables on loop devices. - improved >512-byte sector support - gpt tables are more rigorously checked - improved dasd disk support - handle device nodes created by lvm built with udev synchronisation enabled properly. - when printing tables, parted no longer truncates flag names - Partitions in a GPT table are no longer assigned the \"microsoft reserved partition\" type. Before this change, each partition would be listed with a type of \"msftres\" by default.
* Notice - Parted stopped using BLKPG_
* ioctls to inform the kernel about changes of the partition table. The consequence of this change is that parted alone can no longer inform the kernel about changes to partition table on a disk where some of the partitions are mounted.- build requires check-devel and pkg-config- drop parted-1.8.3.dif - fixed by adding pkg-config and check-devel to BuildRequires- drop parted.tty.patch, parted.no-O_DIRECT.patch, do-not-discard-bootcode-in-extended-partition.patch, avoid-unnecessary-open-close.patch, do-not-unnecessarily-open-part-dev.patch - fixed upstream- drop fix-tests.sh - make check disabled in specfile- drop fix-error-informing-the-kernel.patch, fix-race-call-udevadm-settle.patch, retry-blkpg-ioctl.patch, use-ext-range.patch - affected code removed as part of the BLKPG to BLKRRPART switch- clean up specfile
* Mon Feb 01 2010 jengelhAATTmedozas.de- package baselibs.conf
* Mon Jan 25 2010 puzelAATTnovell.com- use-ext-range.patch (bnc#567652)
* Thu Dec 03 2009 puzelAATTnovell.com- avoid-unnecessary-open-close.patch, do-not-unnecessarily-open-part-dev.patch, fix-race-call-udevadm-settle.patch, retry-blkpg-ioctl.patch (bnc#539521)
* Wed Oct 07 2009 puzelAATTnovell.com- do-not-create-dm-nodes.patch (bnc#501773)
* Fri Jul 31 2009 puzelAATTnovell.com- update to parted-1.9.0
* parted now preserves the protective MBR (PMBR) in GPT type labels.
* gpt_read now uses SizeOfPartitionEntry instead of the size of GuidPartitionEntry_t. This ensures that
* of the partition entries are correctly read.
* mklabel (interactive mode) now correctly asks for confirmation, when replacing an existent label, without outputting an error message.
* resize now handles FAT16 file systems with a 64k cluster. This configuration is not common, but it is possible.
* parted now ignores devices of the type /dev/md
* when probing. These types of devices should be handled by the device-mapper capabilities of parted.
* The parted documentation now describes the differences in the options passed to mkpart for the label types.
* changes in behavior
* In libparted, the linux-swap \"filesystem\" types are now called \"linux-swap(v0)\" and \"linux-swap(v1)\" rather than \"linux-swap(old)\" and \"linux-swap(new)\" as in parted 1.8, or \"linux-swap\" as in older versions; \"old\" and \"new\" generally make poor names, and v1 is the only format supported by current Linux kernels. Aliases for all previous names are available.- drop following patches as they were merged upstream/are no longer needed:
* parted-fdasd-compile-fixes- remove FAT16 stuff from fat16_hfs_fix.dif, rename it hfs_fix.dif- add fix-tests.sh
* adjust testsuite so that it succeeds with our patchset- update all patches to remove fuzz, renumber patches- change license to GPL v3- parted-type.patch: fix output of flags
* Wed Jul 01 2009 puzelAATTnovell.com- add libsepol-devel to BR: (fix build)
* Wed Jun 17 2009 puzelAATTsuse.cz- add fix-make-install-failure.patch (fix build)- add fix-array-overflow.patch (fixes warning)- split -lang subpackage
* Tue Apr 07 2009 crrodriguezAATTsuse.de- remove static libraries
* Tue Mar 10 2009 puzelAATTsuse.cz- fix-multipath-part-name.patch replaced with fix-dm-partition-name.patch (bnc#471440)
