37. By Alberto Milone on 2011-01-07

* debian/nvidia-173.prerm{.in}:
  - Call dpkg-trigger with --by-package=$PACKAGE_NAME.
* Add support for blacklisting card ids from GRUB gfxpayload=keep:
  - In Natty gfxpayload=keep is set by default so as to provide a framebuffer
    early in the boot process. Some cards don't play nicely with it, therefore
    we need to blacklist them in a file. The format is a sequence of lines of
    the following form:
    Blacklist lines are regex-matched against a corresponding PCI ID string.
    In practice this means that you can replace any part of the ID string
    with .* to match anything.

36. By Martin Pitt on 2010-12-18

* Move from separate modalias file package to using a package header:
  - debian/control.in, debian/rules: Drop -modaliases package.
  - debian/control.in: Add XB-Modaliases header and dh-modaliases build
  - debian/rules: Build the modalias list to
    debian/nvidia-173.modaliases, where dh_modaliases picks it up, and
    invoke dh_modaliases.
  - debian/control.in: Add Conflicts:/Replaces: to nvidia-173-modaliases, so
    that the obsolete modaliases package gets cleaned up on upgrade.

33. By Alberto Milone on 2010-04-09

* debian/nvidia-$flavour.{dirs|postinst}.in, rules:
  - Install the blacklist file in /lib/nvidia-$flavour instead
    of /usr/lib/nvidia-$flavour so that the file is available
    early in the boot process when /usr is on a different
    partition (LP: #538071).
  - Ignore errors when trying to update the initramfs
    with -k $CURRENT_KERNEL which is known to fail when
    using chroots (LP: #556653).

* debian/nvidia-$flavour.{postinst|prerm}.in:
  - Call gmenucache trigger so that the icon of nvidia-settings
