80. By Alberto Milone on 2011-10-10

Re-enable grub fb and drop the initramfs hook in favour of
"alias radeon/lbm_radeon off" (LP: #864149).

79. By Alberto Milone on 2011-09-30

* debian/rules, debian/modaliases/fglrx_supported:
  - Make sure that the module alias is always correct and
    uses underscores instead of hyphens (LP: #855396).
  - Make the grub-gfxpayload file a template and blacklist
    all AMD cards so that Grub doesn't set a framebuffer
    which prevents recovery mode from working (LP: #854967).

78. By Alberto Milone on 2011-09-08

* debian/rules:
  - Add an initramfs hook to make sure that nothing else loads
    open graphics drivers in the initramfs (LP: #839524).

77. By Alberto Milone on 2011-08-24

* New upstream release 8.881 (11-8).
* debian/rules:
  - Make sure to use LICENSE instead of ATI_LICENSE, as it
    has been renamed by AMD.
  - Add a hack for pbuild which would otherwise fail to call
    execstack when trying to build.
  - Rename the grub_fb_blacklist link, so that it has a name
    shared with all the other proprietary drivers.

76. By Alberto Milone on 2011-08-16

* debian/fglrx.prerm.in:
  - Remove trailing whitespace.
  - Make sure to remove the alternatives for PXpress on
    uninstallation (LP:# 827046).

75. By Alberto Milone on 2011-08-11

* New upstream release 8.872 (11-7).
* debian/rules:
  - Further improvements on files generation from templates.
  - Make sure to ship an empty ld.so.conf for the other arch for
* debian/fglrx.postinst.in:
  - Make amdconfig point at aticonfig.
* debian/control, debian/README:
  - Replace "ATI" with "AMD".
* debian/control:
  - Add conflicts/replaces to deal with fglrx-updates.
  - Add fglrx-amdcccle to Replaces in fglrx.
* debian/fglrx.install.in:
  - Make sure to always install PXpress scripts in /usr/lib/fglrx
    (LP: #815322).
* debian/fglrx-amdcccle.install.in:
  - Do not install the PXpress scripts in amdcccle.
* debian/pxpress/switchlib{glx|GL):
  - Fix issue when setting the alternative for the other arch.
* Disable replace-global-lock-with-a-driver-specific-mutex.patch.

74. By Alberto Milone on 2011-07-24

* debian/fglrx.dirs.in:
  - Create some extra directories, usually made by mesa, to fix
    the installation in chroots (LP: #807347).

73. By Alberto Milone on 2011-07-20

* debian/fglrx.dirs.in:
  - Make sure to create the /usr/lib/dri directory (LP: #807347).
* debian/fglrx.postrm.in:
  - Do not fail when trying to remove only the files in
    /usr/lib/fglrx (LP: #807092). We don't want to remove the
    /usr/lib/fglrx/etc directory unless we're using --purge
    remove, otherwise user settings will be lost.
* debian/rules:
  - Make sure that the copyright file is installed after it's
    generated. On some systems this wasn't guaranteed to happen.
    Thanks to Felix Kuehling and Mabel Lee for reporting the
    problem and for debugging the issue on the affected systems.
  - Use the multi-arch path for xorg extra-modules (LP: #807209).

72. By Alberto Milone on 2011-06-27

Use an empty ld.so.conf when installing alternative for the
non-native arch, otherwise it would be impossible to switch
to mesa without installing mesa for the same architecture.

71. By Alberto Milone on 2011-06-23

* New upstream release 8.861 (11-6).
* Add scripts to support for PXpress (see debian/pxpress) and
  install an additional alternative to switch between libraries.
* Deep rework of the packaging scripts, so as to make it possible
  to generate more files from templates.
* Add initial support for multi-arch (LP: #798049).
