cryptsetup (2:1.6.6-5ubuntu2.1) xenial; urgency=medium
* d/p/fips-fix-luksformat-with-recent-kernels -- fix luksFormat with recent
FIPS enabled kernels. (LP: #1715010)
2015-08-21 - Andy Whitcroft <>
cryptsetup (2:1.6.6-5ubuntu2) wily; urgency=medium
* Fix stupid typo in Recommends "busybox | busybox-static" inversion.
Fixes binary moves for busybox into main.
2015-07-07 - Andy Whitcroft <>
cryptsetup (2:1.6.6-5ubuntu1) wily; urgency=low
* Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
- debian/control:
+ Bump initramfs-tools Suggests to Depends: so system is not
potentially rendered unbootable.
+ Depend on plymouth.
+ Invert the "busybox | busybox-static" Recommends, as the latter
is the one we ship in main as part of the ubuntu-standard task.
+ Drop explicit libgcrypt11 dependency from libcryptsetup4.
* Dropped changes, now in Debian:
- Remove hardcoded paths to udevadm.
- debian/initramfs/cryptroot-hook:
+ Do not unconditionally include cryptsetup utils in the initramfs.
+ Do not include any modules or utils in the initramfs, unless
rootfs/resume devices are encrypted or CRYPTSETUP is set to 'y' in
the initramfs.conf configuration file.
- debian/cryptsetup.maintscripts:
+ Migrate upstart jobs to new names.

cryptsetup (2:1.6.6-5) unstable; urgency=high
* debian/cryptdisks.functions: fix the precheck for ubuntu+upstart
before invoking 'status cryptdisks-udev'. (closes: #773456)
* debian/cryptdisks.functions: fix the insufficient grep regex for
detecting a running cryptdisks-udev (upstart) init script.
2014-12-17 - Jonas Meurer <>
cryptsetup (2:1.6.6-4) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Simon McVittie ]
* debian/initramfs/cryptroot-script: decrypt /usr as well as / so that
split-/usr will work with initramfs-tools (>= 0.118). (closes: #767832)
[ Jonas Meurer ]
* debian/cryptdisks.funcctions: check for cryptdisks-udev initscript before
actually invoking 'status' on it. It's only useful in ubuntu+upstart
environment anyway. (closes: #764564)
* debian/askpas.c: fix systemd_read() to really strip trailing newline from
input. Thanks to Quentin Lefebvre for report and patch. (closes: #768407)
2014-10-07 - Jonas Meurer <>
cryptsetup (2:1.6.6-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/initramfs/cryptroot-script: fix environment variable $CRYPTTAB_TRIED
to hold the number of actual tries instead of the number of maximum tries.
Thanks to Luc Maisonobe for debugging and the patch. (closes: #758788)
