12. By Stephen Kitt on 2014-01-29

Fully detach the sub-processes waiting to remove the OSS modules, and
stop waiting if rmmod disappears. (Closes: #737054.)

11. By Stephen Kitt on 2014-01-26

* Stop using "rmmod -w" which is no longer supported. (Closes: #736584.)
* Standards-Version 3.9.5, no change required.

10. By Stephen Kitt on 2013-08-21

* Remove oss-compat.conf when removing the package, so it doesn't load
  the OSS modules when configured but not installed. (Closes: #718241.)
* Remove the OSS modules when removing the package. If anything is using
  the modules, they are queued for removal as soon as they are freed.
* Switch to debhelper compat level 9.
* Only recommend osspd on Ubuntu and derivatives; suggest it on Debian
  for now (we need to get the updated prerm or drop the OSS modules from
  the kernel before transitioning to osspd).

9. By Stephen Kitt on 2013-06-18

* Use softdep directives in the modprobe configuration. (Closes:
* Switch to my Debian address.
* Use canonical VCS URIs.
* Drop obsolete Lintian override for module-init-tools dependency.
* Recommend osspd, which provides OSS emulation using ALSA or PulseAudio
  (LP: #659024, #983707).
* Standards-Version 3.9.4, no further change required.

8. By Christoph Egger on 2012-03-05

[ Stephen Kitt ]
* Add VCS information.

[ Christoph Egger ]
* Team upload

* Do not depend on module-init-tools
  * On linux it's transitional for kmod anyway
  * on kfreebsd it got uninstallable due to changes in module-init-tools
    recently (and there's nothing needed on kfreebsd)
* Make package arch:any so we can simplify Depends: to kmod [linux-any]

7. By Stephen Kitt on 2012-01-15

* Switch to single-component versions.
* Declare the package is "Multi-Arch: foreign", thanks to Steve Langasek
  for the hint! (Closes: #651335.)
* Make /etc/modprobe.d/oss-compat.conf a file, handling the various
  upgrade cases, and only removing it on purge. (Closes: #649507.)
  (LP: #340873)
* Add kmod as an alternative dependency to avoid preventing
  module-init-tools' removal.

6. By Bruno "Fuddl" Kleinert <email address hidden> on 2011-06-08

* Team upload.
* Re-upload without changes, because the last binary upload changed the
  Maintainer field to myself by accident, which made the package look

5. By Stephen Kitt on 2011-06-06

* New maintainer. (Closes: #594376.)
* Only modprobe snd. (Closes: #390747.)
* Update copyright file, switch to DEP-5 format.
* Drop obsolete modutils dependency.
* Switch to dh7 short form.
* Specify source format "3.0 (native)".
* Override depends-on-essential-package-without-using-version
  explicitly; the dependencies allow this package to be installed on
* Standards-Version 3.9.2, no further change required.

4. By Michael Biebl on 2009-03-18

* Non-maintainer upload.
* debian/{postinst,prerm}
  - Update the symlink in /etc/modprobe.d/ to have a .conf suffix as
    is required now by module-init-tools. (Closes: #518149)

3. By Martín Ferrari on 2008-12-19

[ Frank Lichtenheld ]
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Add the "install snd-{mixer,pcm,seq}" items alsa-base previously
  had. Also remove the "install snd" item, we have no guarantee
  that is is used anyway (see #397765). (Closes: #500460)

[ Martín Ferrari ]
* Uploading Frank's changes.
