The blkid library allows system programs such as fsck and mount to
quickly and easily find block devices by filesystem UUID or label.
This allows system administrators to avoid specifying filesystems by
hard-coded device names and use a logical naming system instead.

util-linux (2.27.1-6ubuntu3) xenial; urgency=medium
* Add debian/patches/script-use-empty-slave.patch taken from
upstream git (LP: #1553353, Closes: #820843)
2016-03-30 - Martin Pitt <>
util-linux (2.27.1-6ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* Add upstream-lscpu-powerpc.patch: lscpu: Fix model and model name on Power
Systems. (Backported from upstream trunk). (LP: #1563514)
2016-03-14 - Martin Pitt <>
util-linux (2.27.1-6ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
- Regularly trim SSDs automatically (core-1311-ssd-trimming):
+ Add debian/fstrim-all.cron: Call fstrim --all. Installed as
- Upstart support:
+ Add hwclock{-save}.upstart, and install them in debian/rules.
+ Drop debian/hwclock.rules and hwclock.default.
- Add sulogin-fallback-static-sh.patch: Add support for /bin/static-sh as
fallback if the regular shell fails to execute. Patch ported from
sysvinit. (see LP #505887)
- Add sulogin-lockedpwd.patch: Make sure file systems can be fixed on
machines with locked root accounts (as Ubuntu does by default). Don't
require --force for sulogin.
- Make util-linux Breaks old {p,}mac-fdisk for the fdisk binary takeover.
- Drop debian/util-linux.preinst: Unconditionally deleting files
is wrong, and dpkg will overwrite symlinks with real files anyway.
- Drop debian/util-linux.preinst: Unconditionally deleting files
is wrong, and dpkg will overwrite symlinks with real files anyway.
- Adjust the Breaks: cloud-utils to 0.27-0ubuntu16 (the Ubuntu version
that works with util-linux 2.26), and also move it to cloud-guest-utils.
- Add debian/libblkid1.maintscript to clean up /etc/blkid.conf on upgrade.
This needs to be kept until after Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
* Debian changes fix upgrade failure. (LP: #1556539)
2016-03-12 - Andreas Henriksson <>
util-linux (2.27.1-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Drop (versioned) init-system-helpers dependency to avoid dep loop.
- initscripts is guaranteed to be installed in stable/jessie, the file
is additionally a conffile so initscripts will need to be purged to
cause a problem for us with i-s-h << 1.29 and purging initscripts is
not possible until after the upgrade anyway. (Closes: #817857)
* Temporarily move sysvinit-utils back from Breaks to Depends.
- again seems to confuse apt and we apparently need a synchronized
upload with sysvinit to move things to how it should (and now can be
since initscripts dependency was dropped from u-l) be described.

util-linux (2.27.1-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Completely drop (versioned) tzdata dependency (Closes: #817371)
- the alternative on systemd-sysv causes (pre-)dependency loops which
dpkg can't handle (see example in #817780)
- the reason for the dependency in the first place seems to have been
ensuring /etc/localtime is a real file. Later the use of
/etc/localtime seems to have been removed (see #660365).
Thanks to Felipe Sateler for digging this information up.
- tzdata itself is Priority: required so should always be around in a
regular install even without any dependency on it. (i.e. unless it has
explicitly been removed.)
