palo (1.94) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Helge Deller ]

aCC can be used.
* Use printf("0x%08x") instead of printf("%p"), which is not
supported on HP-UX.
* Provide endianess byteswapping functions for HP-UX.
* Provide pre-built README file to avoid dependency on lynx.

palo (1.15) unstable; urgency=low
[ Kyle McMartin ]
* Make the message when using the -U option on an unformatted
volume slightly more helpful.
[ Jeff Bailey ]
* Drop dependency on linux-kernel-headers, the new package
linux-libc-dev is an indirect dependency of build-essential.
* Depend on debhelper >= 5, set compat file to 5.
* Drop obsolete headers:
- asm/elf.h
- asm/posix_types.h
- asm/ptrace.h
- asm/types.h
- linux/elf.h

shows up on 64-bit machines on Ubuntu.
* 64-bit pointer casting fixes.
-- LaMont Jones <lamont@debian.org> Thu, 5 Jan 2006 10:08:58 -0700
palo (1.12) unstable; urgency=low
* Work around differences in linux-kernel-headers between
Debian and Ubuntu. Test build on sid and dapper on hppa
and sid/i386.
* Use userspace-sanitized ext2_fs.h file from e2fsprogs; we still
need to include some kernel headers for per-arch types and endian
conversions.
-- Kyle McMartin <kyle@debian.org> Mon, 2 Jan 2006 12:16:36 -0500
palo (1.11) unstable; urgency=low
* Flush Instruction Cache insn now requires space register to be
specified. Previously it would assume %sr0.
* Fix include of ext2_fs.h by stubbing out some definitions it
requires. Patch from Richard Hirst. (Closes: #336346)
* Fix FTBFS from previous version a different way. Checked that it
properly works on i386 and hppa. Patch from Andreas Jochens.

build, so removed lots of dependencies on copies and references
to linux header files, but added a dep on linux-kernel-headers.
* Fix a couple of lintian complaints.
-- Paul Bame <bame@debian.org> Wed, 20 Jul 2005 12:31:06 -0600

palo (1.1) unstable; urgency=low
[Carlos O'Donell]
* Change argument checking in palo.c: Originally you could specify
a kernel command line of up to 255 characters, but in reality the
firstblock structure could only hold 127 characters. The check in
palo.c has been adjusted to 127.
* Change PALO to build without kernel headers:
- Remove conditional header includes depending on
kernel version
- Remove the #include directive for fs.h in ipl/ext2.c.
- Remove the #include directive for time.h in /ipl/ipl.c.
- Add ./include/asm and ./include/linux/byteorder to accomodate
for all the new asm/* and linux/byteorder/* header files that
are required to build PALO without kernel headers.
-- Paul Bame <bame@debian.org> Tue, 6 Aug 2002 08:47:57 -0600
palo (1.0) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix package override so debian/rules changes should now
be honored, causing PALO to be built on all architectures.
priority optional. (Closes: #140580)

palo (0.97) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix lintian complaints.
* Minor makefile tweaks.
* Optimize boot device reads for better performance.
* Adopt/adapt aboot-0.9 ext2 code (was from aboot-0.5).

* Increment PALO version in lib/common.h.
-- Matt Taggart <taggart@debian.org> Tue, 16 Oct 2001 18:34:45 -0600
palo (0.94) unstable; urgency=low
* Add support for symlinks so we can reference /boot/vmlinux in palo.conf
and not have to rerun palo on every kernel upgrade.(Richard Hirst)
* Move iplboot into /usr/share/palo. (Richard Hirst)
* Only generate iplboot if building on hppa machines. debian-cd needs
PALO, and is likely to be run on i386. (Richard Hirst)
* --bootloader now defaults to /usr/share/palo/iplboot, so it is usually
not required. Adjust documents slightly to accomodate.
* Add postinstall/prerm scripts to handle changed iplboot location.
-- Paul Bame <bame@debian.org> Sat, 8 Sep 2001 12:32:21 -0600
palo (0.93) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix boot loader "guess" logic to be smarter on dual-width-capable
machines when only one kernel is available.
* Remove a couple of gratuitous printfs.
* Archive link PALO. Not a bad idea otherwise but required because
dpkg-shlibdeps started whining. I'm sure I'll get grief for this.
-- Paul Bame <bame@debian.org> Wed, 11 Jul 2001 11:00:17 -0600
palo (0.92) unstable; urgency=low
* Remove SOM loader code.
* If the user hasn't specified one, PALO/ipl adds the correct console=
to the command line based on whether the boot console is full
(ttyS0, serial) or half (tty0, graphics) duplex. Also adds sti=
and sti_font= if they're missing.
* PALO header version is now 3. Can store both a 32 and a 64-bit kernel
in the F0/sequential/CDROM formats.
* When booting from F0/sequential/CDROM PALO guesses the 32/64-ness
by asking firmware if the user doesn't specify 0/vmlinux64 or 0/vmlinux32.
On boxes which support both 32 and 64, 32 is chosen.
* If no TERM= in kernel cmd line, when guessing serial/sti, add TERM=vt102
for former and TERM=linux for latter.
* Print boot command line even in non-interactive mode.
* Place kernels and ramdisks on 2k boundaries on sequential media to help
avoid reverse seeks during boot.
-- Paul Bame <bame@debian.org> Wed, 20 Jun 2001 10:21:06 -0600
palo (0.91) unstable; urgency=high
* Fix check which causes some narrow IPL loads to fail.
-- Paul Bame <bame@debian.org> Tue, 29 May 2001 11:39:23 -0600
palo (0.90) unstable; urgency=low
* Add support for calling PDC/IODC in wide mode (i.e., for
Superdome). PALO ipl continues to run in narrow mode on all
platforms, except that PDC/IODC calls are made in the mode
that ipl was started in.
-- Bjorn Helgaas <bjorn_helgaas@hp.com> Tue, 15 May 2001 13:17:21 -0600
palo (0.89) unstable; urgency=high
* PALO can now prepare disks >2G on 32-bit kernels, even though it
is not using large file I/O calls, which are not useful yet
anyway. Fixes bugs.parisc-linux.org #125.
* Fix bugs.parisc-linux.org #89.
-- Paul Bame <bame@debian.org> Fri, 11 May 2001 19:07:18 -0600
palo (0.88) unstable; urgency=high
* Fix several lintian bugs by uncommenting 2 lines in debian/rules.
* No longer ship /etc/palo.conf as config file -- expect installer
to provide one now. Example in /usr/share/doc/palo. Should have
some post-install magic to offer to run palo if /etc/palo.conf
exists, and a complaint if /etc/palo.conf doesn't exist because
you should have one from running the installer.
* Change palo to a native Debian package since it's maintained
as one.
-- Paul Bame <bame@debian.org> Fri, 11 May 2001 16:07:18 -0600
palo (0.86-1) unstable; urgency=high
