ubuntu-drivers-common 1:0.4.17.2 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.17.2) xenial-proposed; urgency=medium

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Fix memory leak in get_alternatives(). Make sure to always free
      alternatives->current_core and alternatives->current_egl.
    - Partially drop the drm code, and get information about connectors
      from sysf. This fixes a long standing performance issue (LP: #1586933).
    - Disable persistence mode before powering down the dGPU.
      If persistence mode is not disabled, gpu-manager will not be able to
      unload the nvidia module (LP: #1619306).
    - Make sure to load and unload nvidia-drm. This fixes a problem that
      prevents the dGPU from being powered off in hybrid systems with
      recent nvidia drivers (LP: #1619306).

  [ Ying-Chun Liu (PaulLiu) ]
  * Quirks/quirkinfo.py:
    - Catch and ignore UnicodeDecodeErrors in dmi info, as some machines
      may report board_name as ffffffffffff0a to mean empty, and this
      causes an error in python 3 (LP: #1320868).

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
 debian/packagename.modaliases.
 .
 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

 This is a transitional package for ubuntu-drivers-common. You can remove it
 after upgrading.

nvidia-common: transitional package for ubuntu-drivers-common

 This is a transitional package for ubuntu-drivers-common. You can remove it
 after upgrading.

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.
