51. By Chris Halse Rogers on 2012-01-25

Oops! This driver does not actually support Xserver 1.11. Rebuild,
manually specifying video ABI 10. This will prevent Jockey from
automatically installing it.

50. By Chris Halse Rogers on 2012-01-19

Rebuild against Xserver 1.11 to pick up new dependencies.

[ Daniel van Vugt ]
* debian/dkms.conf{.in}:
  - Fix failure to install with kernel 3.2 (LP: #576648).
  - Drop non-functional OBSOLETE_BY variable.

[ Alberto Milone ]
* debian/nvidia-$flavour.prerm.in:
  - Use the right path to remove the alternative for the
    other architecture (LP: #915461).

48. By Alberto Milone on 2011-10-10

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

47. By Alberto Milone on 2011-09-30

* debian/rules:
  - 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 Nvidia cards so that Grub doesn't set a framebuffer
    which prevents recovery mode from working (LP: #854967).

46. By Alberto Milone on 2011-09-07

* debian/rules:
  - Remove trailing spaces.
  - Blacklist the updates flavours in modprobe.conf.
  - Add an initramfs hook to make sure that nothings else loads
    open graphics drivers in the initramfs (LP: #839524).

45. By Alberto Milone on 2011-08-30

* debian/nvidia-173.postinst{.in}:
  - Make sure to create and use X.Org's multiarch extra modules
    path (LP: #807209).
  - Share the same name for grub's blacklist file for all
    drivers.
* debian/rules:
  - Fix issues with pbuild.
  - Do not provide the X abi any longer. Depending on the ABI is
    enough.

44. 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.

43. By Alberto Milone on 2011-06-23

  debian/nvidia-173.postinst{.in}:
