Description:

This update for autoyast2 and yast2-storage fixes the following issues:
autoyast2:

  • When using Btrfs but without subvolumes, export an empty list instead of removing them from the profile. (bsc#1059617)
  • Add default subvolumes to the root partition only if the user has not defined any root partition in the autoyast configuration file. (bsc#1059617)
  • Make sure ask-scripts and their corresponding log files are saved to /var/adm/autoinstall. (bsc#1049473)
  • Handle packages that are missing a PGP signature although digests are valid. (bsc#1054969)
  • Clone system: Reverting wrong fix for adding not used devices to the skip list. (bsc#1167596)
  • Report shrinked partitions if there is not enough space. (bsc#1039528)
  • Fix subvolumes schema definition. (bsc#1013047)
  • Remove dependency on insserv. (bsc#1026027)
  • Allow install_recommended to be set by the control.xml file (clone_install_recommended_default). Default is true. (fate#321764)
  • Add support to enable copy-on-write for Btrfs subvolumes. (fate#320342)
  • Add support to omit the Btrfs default subvolume name. (fate#317775)
  • Fix running autoyast2 on installed systems by writing the init scripts to /var/adm/autoinstall/init.d. (bsc#1052145)
  • Shrink needed disks size automatically in order to handle rounding inaccuracies in LVM installations. (bsc#1057597)
  • ayast_setup: Restarting autoyast-initscripts.service in order to run init-scripts too. (bsc#1057597)
  • Report packages which cannot be select for installation, except those packages not included in the AutoYaST profile. (bnc#1077292)
  • Consider extended partitions when trying to figure out whether the partitioning layout described in the profile fits. (bsc#1156567)

yast2-storage:
  • Fix Btrfs default subvolume name detection. (bsc#1044434, bsc#1044250)
  • Read default subvolume name for Btrfs filesystems when using the expert partitioner. (bsc#1040154)
  • Make filesystem type for home and root configurable in control.xml. (bsc#1051762)
  • Fixed check whether snapshots are proposed. (bsc#1049108)
  • Allow different mount point for home partition. (fate#323532)
  • Dropped /etc/init.d/boot.crypto* invocations amd calls to /sbin/insserv. (bsc#1026027)
  • In simple_mode, block installation unless snapshots are enabled. (bsc#1019652)
  • Implement simple_mode -> label_proposal. (fate#322328)
  • Fix initialization of partitioning/btrfs_default_subvolume product feature. (bsc#1011541)
  • Increased dependency on yast2-storage to 3.1.110 (or newer) after merged with CAASP.
  • Don't show the Edit Proposal Settings button if disabled in control.xml. (fate#321736)
