10. By Alberto Milone on 2010-09-23

* ati/patches/5-detect-compat-alloc-user-space.patch:
  - Suppress errors from grep in the Makefile when it doesn't find
    compat.h because $srctree hasn't been set yet (DKMS builds the
    module correctly afterwards). This is just a cosmetic change
    (LP: #642518). Thanks to Jean-Baptiste Lallement for spotting
    the annoying message.

* Add ati/patches/5-detect-compat-alloc-user-space.patch:
  - Work around the lack of compat_alloc_user_space() in asm/compat.h
    after the fix for CVE-2010-3081 (LP: #642518). Thanks to Evan Broder
    and Stefan Bader for the patch.

8. By Alberto Milone on 2008-10-16

Fix (LP: #261816) Backport fix from Intrepid for
nvidia-FLAVOUR-kernel-source.postinst so as to clean up /var/lib/dkms/nvidia
and replace "remove" with "remove|upgrade" in the case loop in
nvidia-FLAVOUR-kernel-source.prerm so that older versions of the drivers are
removed from the dkms tree in case of upgrade.

    containing an ATI FireGL X1 series of product and running X.
  * Running the X server generations test no longer results in the
    operating system failing to respond or a Kernel panic to occur after
    first server generation on SuSE 10.3 64 bit.

4. By Alberto Milone on 2008-05-11

* Fix (LP: ##227717) Look for diversions in xorg-driver-fglrx-envy.preinst and remove them
* touch envy-dkms directly into the package
* Be more tolerant when diversions of 32bit compatibility libraries no
  longer exist
* Check diversions in nvidia-glx-dev in a more sensible way

3. By Alberto Milone on 2008-05-09

* Create and remove envy-dkms in the rules
* Fix (LP: #228649) xorg-driver-fglrx-dev conflicted with
  xorg-driver-fglrx

2. By Alberto Milone on 2008-05-07

* Sync with the fixes in linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24 (2.6.24.12-17.36)
  * nvidia: Do not divert libwfb.so, because if the xserver provides one
      it should be used. This caused at least problems with some websites
      crashing on certain pages (see #212648), and pink shadows with compiz.
      (see: #186382)
  * fglrx: Patch authatieventsd.sh to search for xauth files in
      /var/run/xauth/. Otherwise the session would freeze on logout for KDM
      users. Thanks Ilja Pavkovic! (see: #118605)
* Remove previous diversions of libwfb.so in the postinst. Thanks Timo
  Aaltonen.
* Make sure that any previous module of fglrx and nvidia built by DKMS are
  removed before the new module is built and installed.

1. By Alberto Milone on 2008-05-05

* Removed ~envy in the package version
* nvidia-glx{-new, -legacy}-envy all provide nvidia-glx-dev
* Removed version from Conflicts of all the packages
