  [ Andreas Beckmann ]
  * Rename source package to nvidia-common.
  * Add debconf/po-debconf infrastructure to interactively resolve conflicts
    with previous usage of the nvidia-installer.
  * Add nvidia-common package that cleans up old installations that were done
    using nvidia-installer and prevents using nvidia-installer again.  Using
    nvidia-installer and Debian packages at the same time does not work.
  * The nvidia-common package is intended to be added to the Pre-Depends of
    most other nvidia-graphics-drivers packages, including the legacy drivers,
    nvidia-settings and nvidia-xconfig.
  * When configuring nvidia-common check for /usr/bin/nvidia-installer and ask
    the user whether to run 'nvidia-installer --uninstall'.  If that fails,
    offer to just delete the remaining files.  If the user chooses to do the
    cleanup himself, the configuration fails as long as nvidia-installer is
    still found on the system, blocking installation of nvidia-glx and related
  * Install a pre-install hook for the nvidia-installer, giving a warning to
    users running a NVIDIA-Linux-*.run file directly while Debian packages
    providing the driver are installed.  This hook fails intentionally, but
    unfortunately the default choice if the hook failed is to continue anyway.
    Therefore try to kill the nvidia-installer process.
  * Add to nvidia-common the new script check-for-conflicting-opengl-libraries
    to be called from the postinst of nvidia-glx{,-legacy-*} to clean up
    conflicting ancient copies of the OpenGL libraries.  ldconfig usually
    picks up these old variants and breaks the libGL.so.* symlinks.
    (Currently the conflicting libraries are moved to
    /var/lib/nvidia-backup.XXXXXX instead of deleting them.)
  * nvidia-kernel-common.postinst: run update-initramfs -u to activate
    blacklisting of nouveau module.  (Closes: #613951)
  * nvidia-kernel-common.postrm: run update-initramfs -u after purging to
    remove the nouveau blacklisting from the initrd.
  * Switch to debhelper 8.1 to get support for package.maintscript files.

nvidia-kernel-common (20100522+2) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Andreas Beckmann ]
  * Switch to dpkg-maintscript-helper for renaming config files.
  * Put the common rename/remove conffile code fragment into
    debian/nvidia-kernel-common.dpkg-maintscript-helper and copy it to
  * Add Vcs-* URLs.
  * Update Standards-Version to 3.9.1, no changes needed.
  * Switch to debhelper compat level 8.

  [ Russ Allbery ]
  * Add Andreas Beckmann to Uploaders.

nvidia-kernel-common (20100522+1) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Andreas Beckmann ]
  * Remove Randall Donald from Uploaders per his request.
  * Add Russ Allbery to Uploaders.
  * Blacklist the nouveau kernel module. (Closes: #580894)
  * Simplify package build.
  * Rename modprobe config to nvidia-kernel-common.conf and use
    dh_installmodules for installation.
  * Adjust transition code in maintainer scripts to take cake of both old
    names nvidia-kernel-nkc and nvidia-kernel-nkc.conf.

  [ Russ Allbery ]
  * Expand the package long description.
  * Rewrite debian/copyright in the DEP-5 format and clarify that the
    package is licensed under the GPL version 2 or later.  Add the
    Policy-requested disclaimer explaining why the package is in contrib.
