GRUB is a GPLed bootloader intended to unify bootloading across x86
operating systems.  In addition to loading the Linux kernel,
it implements the Multiboot standard, which allows for flexible loading
of multiple boot images (needed for modular kernels such as the GNU Hurd).

grub (0.97-29ubuntu68) xenial; urgency=medium
* No-change rebuild for ncurses6 transition.
2015-10-05 - Colin Watson <>
grub (0.97-29ubuntu67) wily; urgency=medium
* Port to modern Automake versions and use dh-autoreconf (closes:
* Build with -fno-combine-stack-adjustments, since that optimisation pass
confuses the stack games played by GRUB itself (closes: #768135).
* Stop linking statically on amd64, which was a holdover from a long time
ago when we couldn't just depend on biarch libraries (closes: #769349).

grub (0.97-29ubuntu66) precise; urgency=low
* When we replace the /etc/kernel-img.conf hook with the
/etc/kernel/postinst.d hook on upgrade, also call update-grub manually;
otherwise if the kernel was upgraded before grub itself, update-grub may
only be called before update-initramfs (due to triggerization of the
latter), giving us an unbootable default entry in menu.lst.
LP: #957262.
2011-12-27 - Colin Watson <>
grub (0.97-29ubuntu65) precise; urgency=low
* Set LDFLAGS to empty as well as unexporting it, fixing an
Ubuntu-specific build failure on i386.
2011-09-26 - Colin Watson <>
grub (0.97-29ubuntu64) oneiric; urgency=low
* Build stage2 with -fno-reorder-functions to prevent
unlikely-to-be-executed functions being reordered before _start with GCC
4.6 (LP: #837815).
2011-09-23 - Colin Watson <>
grub (0.97-29ubuntu63) oneiric; urgency=low
* Handle comparisons involving two-digit kernel versions (LP: #809401).
* Backport from Debian 0.97-39 (LP: #720558):
- Support for Xen style xvd[a-z] devices.  Thanks Ian Campbell.
(Closes: #456776)
* Don't use UUIDs for expressing xvd* devices as GRUB drives, as PV-GRUB
can't handle it.
2011-07-21 - Michael Vogt <>
grub (0.97-29ubuntu62) oneiric; urgency=low
* cherry pick the zz-update-grub fix from debians revision
-62, -63, -64
2011-03-17 - Colin Watson <>
grub (0.97-29ubuntu61) natty; urgency=low
* Refine detection of Xen-only kernels: kernels with both CONFIG_XEN=y and
CONFIG_PARAVIRT=y are now given both Xen entries (if a hypervisor is
present) and non-Xen entries (LP: #692691).
2010-02-26 - Colin Watson <>
grub (0.97-29ubuntu60) lucid; urgency=low
* Backport from Debian 0.97-32 (we should really merge this properly!):
[ Robert Millan ]
- Split grub-doc in multiboot-doc and grub-legacy-doc (LP: #493968).
... and from Debian 0.97-59:
- Rename to to avoid conflict with upcoming
GRUB 2 manual.
2009-10-20 - Colin Watson <>
grub (0.97-29ubuntu59) karmic; urgency=low
* Conflict with grub-pc, grub-coreboot, grub-efi-ia32, grub-efi-amd64, and
grub-ieee1275; this upload ensures that /usr/sbin/update-grub is put
back on systems that erroneously had both grub and grub-pc installed
(LP: #455619).
