Version: 2.02~beta2-9ubuntu1.8 2016-06-21 09:06:26 UTC

  grub2 (2.02~beta2-9ubuntu1.8) trusty; urgency=medium

  * debian/prep-bootdev.c: add prep-bootdev for use in postinst (and to help
    detecting the prep partition on ppc64el in general).
  * debian/rules: build the prep-bootdev binary for grub-ieee1275.
  * debian/control: add libparted-dev to Build-Depends for prep-bootdev.
  * debian/grub-ieee1275-bin.install.ppc64el.in: ship prep-bootdev.
  * debian/clean: clean up prep-bootdev.
  * debian/postinst.in: (LP: #1549064)
    - run prep-bootdev to have a device to point grub-ieee1275 to to install
      the new bootloader data to when calling grub-install.
    - run grub-install with --no-nvram to avoid clobbering the boot-device
      variable every time grub is updated.
