ubuntu-drivers-common 1: source package in Ubuntu


ubuntu-drivers-common (1: trusty; urgency=low

  * tests/gpu-manager.py:
    - Remove leftover print that caused tests to fail in -proposed.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.2.89) trusty; urgency=low

  * debian/control:
    - Breaks: nvidia-prime (<< 0.6). We don't want the gpu-manager
      to compete with the old nvidia-prime on hybrid systems.
  * share/hybrid/gpu-manager.c:
    - Fix memory leaks and complete the different test cases.
  * tests/gpu-manager.py:
    - Add test suite for gpu-manager to reproduce different
      hardware/software scenarios.
  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py, tests/ubuntu_drivers.py:
    - Enable installing graphics drivers on laptops with hybrid
      graphics (LP: #1126234), and on desktop systems where the
      BIOS doesn't disable the integrated GPU when a discrete
      card is available (LP: #1126234). This is now possible
      thanks to the gpu-manager (now enabled by default).
  * Replace the deprecated hybrid-detect program with gpu-manager (now
    enabled by default). In case of problems with the gpu-manager, it
    can be disabled by passing "nogpumanager" as a boot parameter.

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).
  - a PackageKit plugin for WhatProvides() for types MODALIAS and
    HARDWARE_DRIVER, to do the same queries as above through the PackageKit API
    (for using in non-distro specific GUIs). This works with aptdaemon's
    PackageKit compatibility layer (python3-aptdaemon.pkcompat) and with
    PackageKit's apt backend, but _not_ with the PackageKit aptcc backend.
  - 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.
