ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.9.0~ bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Make sure to also search the signed modules (LP: #1931514).
      Credit goes to Bin Li for the first version of this patch.
  * debian/tests/control:
    - Add dependency on alsa-utils, since the autopkgtest requires it
      for the sl-modem detection plugin.
  * ubuntu-drivers:
    - Don't error out when failing to write to /run without
      root privileges (LP: #1913651), since package
      installation will fail later.
    - Restore "--package-list" for list-oem, which was supported
      but accidentally not exposed in the transition to click.
      (LP: #1914051).
    - Do not install recommended dependencies when calling
      "install --gpgpu" (LP: #1898601). The whole point of
      having --gpgpu was to reduce the amount of the
      installed dependencies.
  * tests/test_ubuntu_drivers.py:
    - Add testcase for list-oem --package-list.
  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py:
    - Fix the way we validate the nvidia modules metapackages
      (LP: #1914374).
  * tests/test_ubuntu_drivers.py:
    - Add testcase for list-oem --package-list
  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py:
    - Change metapackage generation.

  [ Michael Hudson-Doyle ]
  * debian/control:
    - Drop dependency on alsa-utils as we want to start using ubuntu-drivers in
      the server installer but do not want alsa-utils there. The code using
      aplay to detect certain kinds of modem will fail to detect them if aplay
      is not installed but will not crash. As alsa-utils is in the
      desktop-common seed there should be no loss of functionality anywhere
      ubuntu-drivers is used today.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: bionic; urgency=medium

  * Backport 1: (LP: #1904583).
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Add PCI_CAP_ID_NULL definition that is missing from

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: bionic; urgency=medium

  * ubuntu-drivers:
    - Make sure that the PATH environment variable is set (LP: #1854472).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py,
    - Provide DKMS fallback for the "install --gpgpu" case
      when no linux-modules-nvidia are available for the driver
      and for a specific kernel (LP: #1843796).
      We have new tests to cover this scenario now.
    - Show provider of kernel modules in list --gpgpu
    - Fix linux metapackage detection.
      This was meant to be driven by the latest kernel version
      But it was only partially implemented.
      Complete the implementation and update the relevant tests.
    - Make sure to install the linux-modules-nvidia package for the
      kernel flavour in use, when passing the --gpgpu argument, so
      that we can deliver a working NVIDIA installation, provided
      that the EULA was accepted.

  [ Jean-Baptiste Lallement ]
  * ubuntu-drivers,
    - Add a --free-only parameter, so as to allow installing only the
     available free drivers. This is a backport of only the
     ubuntu-drivers-common specific part of LP: #1819207, since
     it is tied to the rest of the changes to the test suite.
    - Add support for testing against a fake archive with free and
      non-free components.
    - Add static code checker.
  * debian/control:
    - Add pycodestyle and pyflake8 to build depends.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: bionic; urgency=medium

  * tests/ubuntu_drivers.py,
    - Deprecate the "autoinstall" parameter in favour of
      "install". While "autoinstall" will still work,
      we recommend the latter.
    - Add support to for the --gpgpu parameter (LP: #1819729).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: bionic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Improve pid detection, and restore the default pci
      power control profile in performance mode (LP: #1797147).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: bionic; urgency=medium

  * debian/rules:
    - Make sure to remove "__pycache__" directory.
  * debian/source/options:
    - Ignore the "__pycache__" directory.
  * gpu-manager.(c|py):
    - Set automatic pci power management when the dGPU is disabled (LP: #1778011).
    - Load the nvidia modules when switching to performance mode.
    - Do not skip unbound devices.
    - Make remove_prime_outputclass() void.
    - Report failures in enable_power_management().
    - Look for blacklisted modules in /lib/modprobe.d too.
    - Report failure when the nvidia modules cannot be unloaded,
      kill the main display session created by gdm3, and try
      unloading the nvidia modules once again.
  * gpu-manager.service:
    - Start before oem-config.service (LP: #1789201).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.5.2) bionic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Disable CRT connectors for PRIME, as we used to
      do in 17.10. This solves a problem with phantom
      connectors on hybrid systems (LP: #1762200).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.5.1) bionic; urgency=medium

  * debian/control:
    - Build depend on dh-python.
    - Drop dh-systemd, and use debhelper (>= 9.20160709).
  * tests/ubuntu_drivers.py:
    - Raise time to 40.0 for i386 in
  * NvidiaDetector/nvidiadetector.py:
    - Fix crash with new name scheme of the NVIDIA
      packages (LP: #1054458).
  * gpu-manager.(c|py):
    - Create a xorg.conf.d file for systems with PRIME.
      This way we can drop the PrimaryGpu option from
      the main NVIDIA configuration xorg.conf.d snippet,
      and generate an additional custom snippet on demand
      with that option, to avoid causing problems on systems
      with multiple NVIDIA GPUs (LP: #1756226).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.5) bionic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.{c|py}:
    - Drop all the code to handle driver configuration, which
      stopped working after we moved away from alternatives.
      Only keep telling the system whether PRIME is supported
      or not (LP: #1757180).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.27) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Chris Coulson ]
  * detect-plugins/cpu-microcode.py, UbuntuDrivers/detect.py:
    - Remove the cpu-microcode.py detection plugin (LP: #1738259).
      Kernel metapackages are going to have a hard dependency on the
      {intel,amd64}-microcode packages to ensure that all bare-metal installs
      benefit from microcode updates. This means that microcode packages are
      no longer "additional drivers" and since they won't be able to be removed
      without uninstalling the kernel metapackages, there is no need for them
      to be exposed by ubuntu-drivers.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.26) bionic; urgency=medium

  * tests/gpu-manager.py:
    - It is ok that quirks are still be detected, even though bbswitch
      won't use them, as it's not being loaded. Fixes FTFS.
    - Skip test_system_modaliases_system on s390x.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.25) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Alex Tu ]
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Skip bbswitch, and make sure to unload the nvidia driver when
      the force-dgpu-on option is enabled (LP: #1728547).

  [ Bryan Quigley ]
  * debian/rules,
    - Remove the remaing upstart pieces.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.24) bionic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.{c|py}:
    - Add support for forcing the dGPU on on hybrid systems.
      Creating an empty file named "force-dgpu-on"
      in the /usr/share/gpu-manager.d directory will force the dGPU
      on in power saving mode (LP: #1728547).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.23) artful; urgency=medium

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * gpu-manager.{c|py}:
    - 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.
    - Add support for using custom xorg.confs with the nvidia
      driver (LP: #1667198).
      Custom xorg files can be named "non-hybrid" (for non hybrid
      systems), "hybrid-performance", and "hybrid-power-saving",
      and will have to placed in the /usr/share/gpu-manager.d
      The directory can be overridden by passing another directory
      along with the "--custom-xorg-conf-path" parameter.
    - Add tests for the custom xorg.confs code and for amdgpu-pro
      hybrid support.
  [ Kai-Heng Feng ]
  * debian/control:
    - Add build dependency on libkmod-dev.
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Detect and handle switchable graphics with the amdgpu-pro driver.
      AMDGPU-Pro has its own script to switch between powersaving and
      performance mode.
      Some machines allow enabling switchable graphics, or disabling
      the iGPU completely, thus leaving only the dGPU on. This new code
      simply detects the different profiles supported by AMD, and
      enables powersaving mode when possible.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.22) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - 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.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.21) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Make sure to load and unload the new nvidia-drm module.
      This fixes a problem that prevents the dGPU from being powered off
      in hybrid systems with recent nvidia drivers.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.20) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * Remove PackageKit plugin. This stopped working with packagekit 1.0 as its
    apt backend is gone and aptcc does not support plugins.
  * debian/control: Drop obsolete XS-Testsuite:.
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.8.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.19) yakkety; 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).

  [ 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).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.18) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Pass the arguments in the correct order when getting
      the list of alternatives (LP: #1575960).
      Thanks to Rafał Cieślak for the fix.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.17) xenial; urgency=medium

  * tests/ubuntu_drivers.py: Allow test_system_driver_packages_performance()
    90s on ARM, as 30s is not enough on slow buildds.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.16) xenial; urgency=medium

  * debian/tests/system: Drop test_fglrx() as the fglrx driver is gone.
    Test bcmwl instead.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.15) xenial; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.{c|py}:
    - Add support for managing EGL alternatives.
    - Make sure to load and to unload the new nvidia-modeset module for
  * 71-u-d-c-gpu-detection.rules, u-d-c-print-pci-ids:
    - Fix fglrx detection.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.14) xenial; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.{c|py}:
    - Rely on udev for card detection. This helps detecting if a module
      was unloaded or if a card was disabled on a hybrid system.
      In addition to being more accurate (LP: #1485236), this should also
      be much faster on boot (LP: #1307069).
    - Restrict the search for built modules to the dkms directory. This
      improves performance.
  * debian/rules, setup.py, 71-u-d-c-gpu-detection.rules,
    - Provide a udev rule to detect cards and modules.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.13) xenial; urgency=medium

  * Depend on liblocale-gettext-perl for autopkgtest, forcing it not to be
    dropped during Perl transitions (thereby breaking the fglrx test) due to
    pinning only necessary packages from -proposed.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.12) xenial; urgency=medium

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py:
    - Make modalias matching case insensitive (LP: #1500591).

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * debian/tests/system: Explicitly require version 1.0 of UMockdev, to avoid
    a warning on stderr.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.11) wily; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Rely on /var/log/syslog to get information about unloaded modules.
      This should minimise the current slowdown on boot (LP: #1307069).
    - Switch from intel to modesetting as the default driver on hybrid
      intel/nvidia systems because of a regression in the intel driver
      (LP: #1507676).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.10) wily; urgency=medium

  * debian/tests/system: Drop the nvidia package tests; they are now tested
    through autodep8 on every kernel and dkms change, so we don't have to rely
    on this hard to maintain autopkgtest any more. Also drop most other driver
    package tests for the same reason; just keep the "fglrx" test to get a
    full end-to-end test with "ubuntu-drivers".

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.9) wily; urgency=medium

  * tests/ubuntu_drivers.py: Reset the apt.Cache() cache between tests, as
    this is unreliable with tests that keep switching apt's root directory.
    (LP: #1487223)
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes necessary).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.8) wily; urgency=medium

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * share/hybrid/gpu-manager.c, tests/gpu-manager.py:
    - Use SNA in powersaving mode for pxpress, and keep UXA
      only for performance mode (where it's required). This
      fixes a number of HWE issues (e.g. LP: #1472972).
  * Quirks/quirkreader.py:
    - Set the encoding when opening the file. This fixes a
      crash in Wily.

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * debian/rules: Ensure that $PATH includes /sbin:/usr/sbin, as the tests
    require several programs from that (e. g. modinfo, aptd). Fixes FTBFS due
    to test failures. (LP: #1487223)

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.7) wily; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Check that we have write access to the log. If writing to
      the log fails, we show a warning, and use stdout instead.
      (LP: #1298693)

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.6) wily; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Use the amdconfig tool to configure multi-amd PXpress. This
      fixes a problem where the AMD control panel won't show an
      option to switch between power saving mode and performance
      mode on AMD+AMD hybrid systems (LP: #1410801).
    - The tests now reflect a more relaxed approach so that we
      do not overwrite configurations that are not supported (such
      as multiple xscreens set in the xorg.conf).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.5) vivid; urgency=medium

  * Call dh_systemd_enable after installing gpu-manager.service, so that the
    unit actually gets enabled. Also quiesce the confusing error messages
    about nonexisting binary package directories. (LP: #1443364)

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.4) vivid; urgency=medium

  * debian/tests/system: Re-enable fglrx tests and update them for the
    fglrx-core split.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.3) vivid; urgency=medium

  * debian/tests/system: Don't use --auto-remove on purge, to avoid removing
    our test dependencies.
  * debian/tests/system: Set noninteractive debconf frontend, to avoid debconf
    error messages.
  * debian/tests/system: Mark fglrx tests as expected failures, the current
    fglrx driver is known to be incompatible with current X.org.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.2) vivid; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Do not abort when dealing with sddm. This allows users to get
      partial support for hybrid graphics when using sddm instead of

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4.1) vivid; urgency=medium

  * debian/tests/system:
    - Add test for nvidia-346 and change the ids for nvidia-340.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.4) vivid; urgency=medium

  [ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
  * Add cpu-microcode detect-plugin. (LP: #1386257)

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.3) vivid; urgency=medium

  * debian/tests/system: nvidia-331 is transitional now, so adjust tests to
    use nvidia-340.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: vivid; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Ignore pci passthroughs (LP: #1397124).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: vivid; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.service: Log into /var/log/gpu-manager.log so that we can pick
    this up from apport.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: vivid; urgency=medium

  * Only install systemd unit on architectures where gpu-manager gets built.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: vivid; urgency=medium

  * setup.py: Drop unnecessary glob().
  * tests/ubuntu_drivers.py: Set SYSTEMD_LOG_LEVEL to avoid failing on
    unexpected udevadm debug spew if the kernel gets booted with "debug".
    Fixes FTBFS on our arm64 builders.
  * Add systemd unit for gpu-manager.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: vivid; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Refine checks for blacklisted modules, so that we don't end up
      catching false positives (LP: 1376966).
      Thanks to Pär Lindfors for the patch.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: utopic; urgency=medium

  * debian/tests/system, tests/ubuntu_drivers.py,
    - Revert the previous changes that made us switch from bcmwl to
      the open driver, as the latter (in order to be a full replacement)
      seems to require firmware that we cannot include in the Ubuntu
      image because of licensing issues (LP: #1374126).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: utopic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Add support for "gpumanager_uxa" and "gpumanager_modesetting"
      boot parameters, so that there is an option to force NVIDIA
      Optimus systems (that don't work well with Intel/SNA) to use
      either Intel/UXA or modesetting (LP: #1365695).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: utopic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Be more tolerant with xorg.confs. This fixes the multi AMD
      GPU use case where aticonfig insists on not setting the
      PCI domain in the xorg.conf (LP: #1310489). Also add a test
      with one of the xorg.confs from the bug report so that we
      do not regress in the future.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: utopic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Avoid false positives with blacklisted modules (LP: #1363675).
    - Add regression test for the bug.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.2.98) utopic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Add support for testing core alternatives. This will be needed
      by fglrx.
    - Add the --backup-log parameter. This is only used for debugging
      and disabled by default.
    - Fix a regression that caused the gpu-manager to switch to mesa
      after enabling fglrx on hybrid systems (LP: #1310489). Also
      add a test case so that we don't regress in the future.
    - Check that either fglrx or nvidia is set in xorg.conf when
      xorg.conf is needed.
    - Check if kernel modules are blacklisted before choosing the
      driver (LP: #1310489).
    - Enable only GPUs with open drivers that have connected outputs.
      Attaching to GPUs that have no connected outputs would result
      in a black screen.
    - Allow RandR offloading even without bbswitch (LP: #1349282).
    - Fall back to mesa when failing to enable prime.
    - Do not try to enable prime if the nvidia driver is older than
    - Do not abort if the settings for prime cannot be found.
      Try creating the file before failing.
    - Avoid false positives of unloaded modules.
    - Use the cleanup attribute.
    - Always use snprintf instead of sprintf.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.2.97) utopic; urgency=medium

  * tests/testarchive.py: Organize debs in pool/ structure, for better
  * tests/ubuntu_drivers.py: Drop expected failures, they've succeeded for a
    long time. This needs to be fixed properly if there's a bug.
  * sl-modem plugin: Keep environment for aplay, just ensure it's using the C
    locale. (LP: #1296425)
  * Disable linux-firmware-nonfree autopkgtest for now. bcma does not declare
    any firmware dependencies and linux-firmware-nonfree does not declare
    modaliases, so it either just works now, or the driver needs fixing first.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: utopic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Make sure to unload nvidia-uvm or nvidia won't be
    - Make sure to walk properly the /dev/dri dir. This

      /dev/dri/card1 is available while /dev/dri/card0 is

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.2.96) utopic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Try harder when loading bbswitch (LP: #1310023).
      If loading bbswitch fails try with or without the
      "skip_optimus_dsm=1" option.
    - Switch to intel/SNA for optimus systems (LP: #1326257).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.2.95) utopic; urgency=medium

  [ Tim Lunn ]
  * gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.conf:
    - Use the gpu-manager with GDM too now that support for
      it has landed in Utopic (LP: #1262068).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.2.94) utopic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c, tests/gpu-manager.py:
    - Trim dmi resources or matching will give false positives.
      This should fix LP: #1310516 for good.
    - Re-enable checking alternatives for pxpress.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.2.93) utopic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c, tests/gpu-manager.py:
    - Add support for matching dmi product name (LP: #1310516).

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: utopic; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Revert switch to the intel driver from modesetting until
      some issues are fixed.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1: utopic; urgency=medium

  * debian/tests/system, tests/ubuntu_drivers.py:
    - Fix the relevant tests now that linux-firmware-nonfree
      has replaced bcmwl.

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.2.92) utopic; urgency=medium

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Ignore CRT displays when using PRIME. This works around
      systems whose BIOS provides a ghost output (LP: #1296020).
    - Switch from modesetting to intel for PRIME.
  * tests/gpu-manager.py:
    - Check that we don't remove xorg.confs on 1st boot.
  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py:
    - Do not autoinstall the broadcom driver. The open driver
      should be a better solution now (LP: #1306928).
    - Autoinstall linux-firmware-nonfree. This will help now
      that we no longer autoinstall Broadcom's binary driver.

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - During first boot, don't remove existing xorg.conf (LP: #1307546).

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

  * Force removal of jockey on upgrades. It has been replaced with
    ubuntu-drivers-common two cycles ago, removed from trusty, and now just
    crashes due to API changes in aptdaemon. (LP: #1216193)

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

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Move away the xorg.conf if mesa is selected as a
      fallback and binary drivers are still in use in the
      xorg.conf. This will prevent X from failing when
      users on hybrid systems uninstall a binary driver.

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

  * gpu-manager.c:

    - Also remove the current upstart job from the architectures
      that don't ship gpu-manager.
  * gpu-manager.c, tests/gpu-manager.py:
    - Replace laptop specific hack to detect the need to offload
      rendering to the discrete card with code that opens the
      available drm devices and checks the connected outputs.
      If any outputs are connected to the Intel card, then we
      choose offloading. This also helps when the monitor is
      still connected to Intel on desktop systems with Intel +
      NVIDIA systems.

  * 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).

      header. Also provides a system_driver_packages() function to get all
      driver packages applicable for the system.
    - setup.py: Install the new UbuntuDrivers Python package and register the
      plugin entry point.
    - tests/ubuntu_drivers.py: Add tests cases for UbuntuDrivers.PackageKit,
      using a test aptdaemon instance on a local session bus.
    - debian/control: Add python-aptdaemon.pkcompat dependency. Also specify
      packagekit as an alternative, but conflict to packagekit-backend-aptcc
      for now, as this does not support the MODALIAS what-provides query, nor
      plugins. This means that you cannot currently install this package
      together with packagekit as long as the latter hard-depends on the aptcc
      backend. Also add aptdaemon/dbus build dependencies to be able to run
      the tests during build time.
  * tests/run: Exit with a nonzero code if there are failures or errors.
  * debian/rules: Ensure that our egg-info is built before running the tests,
    and removed again on clean.
  * debian/copyright: Rewrite using copyright 1.0 format.
  * Add ubuntu-drivers: Command line tool to list available driver packages
    for this system and auto-install them. This replaces the functionality of
    "jockey-text --auto-install". This does not use any D-BUS communication,
    so is safe to run in chroots.
  * debian/control: Switch to Architecture: any, we are already building this
    package anywhere but powerpc.
  * setup.py: Remove commented code for updating .mo files. This package is
    not supposed to show user-visible strings, and if we ever get them it
    should rather use python-distutils-extra.
  * setup.py: Only build hybrid-detect on x86 machines.
  * debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3.

nvidia-common (1:0.2.45) quantal; urgency=low

  * Don't write to /usr/share for hybrid graphics
    detection, use /var/lib instead (LP: #976779).

nvidia-common (1:0.2.44) precise; urgency=low

  [ Ricardo Salveti de Araujo ]
  * Make it possible to use nvidia-common with arm/gles
    drivers (LP: #977245).

nvidia-common (1:0.2.43) precise; urgency=low

  * Do not apply multiple quirks when facing multiple values
    for a tag. This was causing nvidia-common to apply quirks
    that are not specific to the hardware in use.
  * Make sure never to add quirks without an id.
  * Improve test 3 and 4 of the test suite:
    - Add testcase for matching multiple products at the same
    - Make sure to parse config files in the quirks directory.
    - Change the name of the handlers used in the tests so
      that they don't conflict with the ones in the quirks

nvidia-common (1:0.2.42) precise; urgency=low

  * Fix broken hybrid-gfx upstart job.

nvidia-common (1:0.2.41) precise; urgency=low

  * Add a test suite and run it at build time with dh_auto_test.
  * Work correctly when the pipe symbol is used in "Match" tags.
    This symbol only worked when used in the "Handler" tag.
    Both test cases are covered in the test suite.

nvidia-common (1:0.2.40) precise; urgency=low

  * Add quirks to get brightness keys to work on Lenovo T420s
    (LP: #773710) and on Dell Latitude E6530 (LP: #914069)
    when using NVIDIA's proprietary driver.

nvidia-common (1:0.2.39) precise; urgency=low

  * Re-enable support for Hybrid Graphics now that the driver
    packages are fixed.

nvidia-common (1:0.2.38) precise; urgency=low

  * Add support for Hybrid graphics, disabled by default for now.

nvidia-common (1:0.2.37) precise; urgency=low

  * Quirks, quirks-handler:
    - Add module and script to create quirks for graphics drivers.

nvidia-common (1:0.2.36) precise; urgency=low

  * NvidiaDetector/alternatives.py:
    - Add optional ignore_pattern argument to get_alternative_by_name.
      This argument allows ignoring a substring in the name. This is
      required in the case of fglrx and fglrx-updates which share the
      same master link name (LP: #873058).

nvidia-common (1:0.2.35) oneiric; urgency=low

  * NvidiaDetector/alternatives.py:
    - Return the correct alternative when dealing with "updates"
      driver flavours in get_alternative_by_name(). This allows
      Jockey to correctly detect the alternatives provided by
      different drivers (LP: #841462).

nvidia-common (1:0.2.34) oneiric; urgency=low

  * debian/nvidia-common.preinst:
    - Use dpkg-maintscript-helper to remove conffiles.

nvidia-common (1:0.2.33) oneiric; urgency=low

  * debian/nvidia-common.preinst:
    - Make sure to remove any leftover kernel hooks from nvidia-common.
  * debian/nvidia-common.postinst:
    - Disable the debconf interface.

nvidia-common (1:0.2.32) oneiric; urgency=low

  * NvidiaDetector/alternatives.py:
    - Remove trailing whitespace.
  * NvidiaDetector/nvidiadetector.py:
    - Remove trailing whitespace.
    - Ignore "-updates" flavours and recommend only stable flavours.
      This fixes a crash in the nvidia detector.
  * setup.py:
    - Disable kernel hooks.

nvidia-common (1:0.2.31) oneiric; urgency=low

  * NvidiaDetector/alternatives.py:
    - Replace __ with _ for private methods.
    - Make Alternatives a new-style class.
    - Add MultiArchUtils class so that Jockey can get the names of
      multi-arch alternatives (LP: #798049).

nvidia-common (1:0.2.30+1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Add epoch to override the sync. The packages in Debian and Ubuntu
    have the same name but different code and scope (LP: #792576).
