  • PartialVolume (10 May 24)

    Request change man/nwipe.1 to man/nwipe.8 Manpage is named nwipe.1 which would be correct but manpage contains section 8 which forms a mismatch(warning) in Debian. # Man sections 1 Executable programs or shell commands 2 System calls (functions provided by the kernel) 3 Library calls (functions within program libraries) 4 Special files (usually found in /dev) 5 File formats and conventions, e.g. /etc/passwd 6 Games 7 Miscellaneous (including macro packages and conventions), e.g. man(7), groff(7), man-pages(7) 8 System administration commands (usually only for root) 9 Kernel routines [Non standard] (requested by MvB)

    Merge pull request #574 from Polynomial-C/configure_ac_fix configure.ac: Fix check for parted

  • Lars Wendler (29 Apr 24)

    configure.ac: Fix check for parted PKG_CHECK_MODULES needs all modules in a single list or else the following error message appears during configure run: ./configure: 6807: libconfig: not found because the macro interprets "[libconfig]" as the action that needs to be done if parted was found. Removed superfluous check for libconfig as requested by PartialVolume

  • PartialVolume (08 Apr 24)

    Merge pull request #571 from PartialVolume/Fix_conditional_jump_or_move_on_unitialised_value Fix conditional jump on uninitialised value

  • PartialVolume (08 Apr 24)

    Fix conditional jump on unitialised value This fixes a valgrind detected error. We check that the number of real max sectors is greater than zero before incrementing the value by 1. However ocassionaly the ioctl call may not be able to obtain the dco and therefore the ioctl data block is never populated. By zeroing the data block prior to use and if it is not populated by the ioctl call then the calculated real max sectors will be zero and no increment will occur which is what we want.
