open-vm-tools (2:10.3.5-7~ubuntu0.18.04.1) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Backport recent open-vm-tools (LP: #1813944)
    - also adresses handling of quiesced snapshot failures (LP: #1814832)
    - also adresses issues with resolutionKMS plugins sometimes fails to
      load at boot (LP: #1818473)

  * [71b468f] make vgauth service execution more reliable.
    Since d3d47039 "Start vgauth before vmtoolsd" there is a potential race
    of starting vgauth so early that it might have issues. This was
    discussed back in the day in [1] to [2], but confirmed to be ok by
    We were all somewhat convinced by this, but a bad feeling remained not
    only with me but also with Bernd [4].
    A recent SRU review denial made me rethink all of it and I think we can
    make it safer without thwarting the purpose of the original change.
    Note: Disambiguation of service names used below:
    vgauth     - open-vm-tools.vgauth.service
    vmtoolsd   - open-vm-tools.service
    fs         - systemd-remount-fs.service
    tmp        - systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service
    cloud-init - cloud-init-local.service
    Currently we have these dependency requirements:
    - vgauth should be before vmtoolsd
    - cloud init should be before vmtoolsd
    - cloud init has to be really early in general
      - therefore this is using DefaultDependencies=No
    That lead to this graph:
     fs / tmp -> vmtoolsd -> cloud-init
    And d3d47039 added it to be like:
     fs / tmp -> vmtoolsd -> cloud-init
     vgauth      --|
    But there is no need to have vgauth without any pre-dependencies at all.
    It is only needed to be "before" vmtoolsd, therefore we can make it:
     fs / tmp -> vgauth -> vmtoolsd -> cloud-init
    That will make execution of vgauth much less error-prone (even though I
    have no hard issue to report) while at the same time holding up all
    known required ordering constraints.

open-vm-tools (2:10.3.5-6) unstable; urgency=medium

  * [43ec618] Correct and/or improve handling of certain quiesced
    snapshot failures.
    Thanks to Oliver Kurth (Closes: #921470)

open-vm-tools (2:10.3.5-5) unstable; urgency=medium

  * [54cce3e] Start vmtoolsd after apparmor.service.
    Github issue #17

open-vm-tools (2:10.3.5-4) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Alf Gaida ]
  * [e13792d] udevadm trigger should not fail (Closes: #917642)

open-vm-tools (2:10.3.5-3) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Christian Ehrhardt ]
  * [d3d4703] Start vgauth before vmtoolsd.
    VGAuthService needs to be ready when vmtoolsd runs. Certain cases - e.g.
    Site Recovery Manager failover - will need vgauth to be up.
    Therefore add an After=vgauth.service dependency to open-vm-tools.service
    To have vgauth be able start early - and not pull cloud-init back late - it
    is also required to drop default dependencies which according to VMware is
    fine to do so.
    (LP: #1804287)

open-vm-tools (2:10.3.5-2) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Raphaël Hertzog ]
  * [db2a364] Ensure vmwgfx module is loaded before start of vmtoolsd.
    This avoids a failure to start the resolutionKMS plugin and it's
    achieved through a drop-in snippet extending open-vm-tools.service
    adding an ExecStartPre directive loading the module prior to
    the start of the service. (Closes: #915031)

  [ Christian Ehrhardt ]
  * [e6e0ab8] d/rules: fix dangling symlink of vmware-user.
    Back in 2:9.4.0-1280544-6 vmware-user* was moved to the
    open-vm-tools-desktop package and some follow on fixes moved bits that
    were forgotten like the man page.
    (LP: #1807441)
    There still is a symlink in /usr/bin/vmware-user that is forgotten in
    the base package and broken unless open-vm-tools-desktop is installed.
    Change d/rules to move the symlink as well.
