39. By Alberto Milone on 2011-02-28

* debian/control{.in}:
  - Depend on ${xviddriver:Depends}.
* debian/rules:
  - Manually set video ABI compatibility to 8 so that the driver is not
    installable in applications such as Jockey or manually.
  - Correct comment about what the file is based on.

38. By Alberto Milone on 2011-01-07

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:
      vVENDORdDEVICEsvSUBVENDORsdSUBDEVICEbcBASECLASSscSUBCLASS
    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
    dependency.
  - 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.

35. By Alberto Milone on 2010-10-04

* New upstream release:
  - Add support for X.Org xserver 1.9 (LP: #626918).
* debian/rules:
  - Switch to new xsfbs variables to get the server ABI
    (LP: #616214).
* debian/nvidia-173.postinst{.in}:
  - Call dpkg-trigger with "--by-package".
* debian/dkms/patches/nvidia-2.6.36-ioctl.patch:
  - Add compatibility with kernel 2.6.36.

34. By Alberto Milone on 2010-07-16

* New upstream release:
  - Fixed a bug in the XvMC driver that prevented it from working on
    systems with AGP graphics cards.
  - Added support for X.Org xserver 1.8.
  - Fixed a bug that could cause X.Org xserver >= 1.7 to hang when
    restarted.

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).

32. By Alberto Milone on 2010-03-16

* debian/nvidia-$flavour.{postinst|prerm}.in:
  - Call gmenucache trigger so that the icon of nvidia-settings
    shows up in the menu (LP: #522969).
