ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.8.4~ focal; urgency=medium

  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py,
    - Avoid triggering test_static.py
      with "E741 ambiguous variable name 'l'" error.
  * ubuntu-drivers:
    - Rework the argument parser to allow passing in
      driver and vendor for the "install" case
      (LP: #1881586).
    - Do not print an error when linux-modules cannot
      be found. This prevents the ubuntu-drivers tools
      from printing misleading warnings, as seen in
    - Add support for the new -server NVIDIA drivers
      (LP: #1881586).
  * debian/control:
    - Depend on python3-click (for the argument
      parsing code).
    - Drop dependency on dpkg-dev (LP: #1880564).
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Add get_system_architecture() (to drop the
      dpkg-dev dependency).

Binary packages built by this source

dh-modaliases: debhelper extension for scanning kernel module aliases

 dh_modaliases is useful for packages that ship third-party kernel modules,
 either in binary form, or as sources (with e. g. DKMS). It extracts the
 modules' modaliases from either the compile .ko files themselves (for packages
 which ship them in compiled form, using modinfo), or from a package file
 This enables software which is looking for missing driver packages (such as
 Jockey or the operating system installer) to identify which package(s) will
 provide a driver for a piece of hardware, identified by its modalias.

fglrx-pxpress: transitional package for ubuntu-drivers-common

ubuntu-drivers-common: Detect and install additional Ubuntu driver packages

 This package aggregates and abstracts Ubuntu specific logic and knowledge
 about third-party driver packages. It provides:
  - a Python API for detecting driver packages for a particular piece of
    hardware or the whole system.
  - an "ubuntu-drivers" command line tool to list or install driver packages
    (mostly for integration in installers).
  - some NVidia specific support code to find the most appropriate driver
    version, as well as setting up the alternatives symlinks that the
    proprietary NVidia and FGLRX packages use.
