af98f3b... by Alberto Milone on 2018-04-20

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.5.2 to ubuntu/bionic-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 031dcc28d9bd22a220f6104e3beb7126be12eec1

New changelog entries:
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Disable CRT connectors for PRIME, as we used to
      do in 17.10. This solves a problem with phantom
      connectors on hybrid systems (LP: #1762200).

031dcc2... by Alberto Milone on 2018-04-12

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.5.1 to ubuntu/bionic-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: fb450c8eddf9290225e198ce92123e4fff346589

New changelog entries:
  * debian/control:
    - Build depend on dh-python.
    - Drop dh-systemd, and use debhelper (>= 9.20160709).
  * tests/ubuntu_drivers.py:
    - Raise time to 40.0 for i386 in
      test_system_driver_packages_performance().
  * NvidiaDetector/nvidiadetector.py:
    - Fix crash with new name scheme of the NVIDIA
      packages (LP: #1054458).
  * gpu-manager.(c|py):
    - Create a xorg.conf.d file for systems with PRIME.
      This way we can drop the PrimaryGpu option from
      the main NVIDIA configuration xorg.conf.d snippet,
      and generate an additional custom snippet on demand
      with that option, to avoid causing problems on systems
      with multiple NVIDIA GPUs (LP: #1756226).

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.5 to ubuntu/bionic-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: e9df556c897f0020f1d3fef1810800e192c1fa6f

New changelog entries:
  * gpu-manager.{c|py}:
    - Drop all the code to handle driver configuration, which
      stopped working after we moved away from alternatives.
      Only keep telling the system whether PRIME is supported
      or not (LP: #1757180).

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.4.27 to ubuntu/bionic-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 9747b9e764c3044bb0894018aa1e4c3e41575650

New changelog entries:
  [ Chris Coulson ]
  * detect-plugins/cpu-microcode.py, UbuntuDrivers/detect.py:
    - Remove the cpu-microcode.py detection plugin (LP: #1738259).
      Kernel metapackages are going to have a hard dependency on the
      {intel,amd64}-microcode packages to ensure that all bare-metal installs
      benefit from microcode updates. This means that microcode packages are
      no longer "additional drivers" and since they won't be able to be removed
      without uninstalling the kernel metapackages, there is no need for them
      to be exposed by ubuntu-drivers.

9747b9e... by Alberto Milone on 2018-02-01

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.4.26 to ubuntu/bionic-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 9a995973fc737922dec8e13bbf3d48f1af69f5e4

New changelog entries:
  * tests/gpu-manager.py:
    - It is ok that quirks are still be detected, even though bbswitch
      won't use them, as it's not being loaded. Fixes FTFS.
    - Skip test_system_modaliases_system on s390x.

9a99597... by Alberto Milone on 2018-01-03

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.4.25 to ubuntu/bionic-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 5d92575837a4d3751540108ede0296845c444085

New changelog entries:
  [ Alex Tu ]
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Skip bbswitch, and make sure to unload the nvidia driver when
      the force-dgpu-on option is enabled (LP: #1728547).
  [ Bryan Quigley ]
  * debian/rules,
    debian/ubuntu-drivers-common.install,
    setup.py,
    share/hybrid/gpu-manager.conf:
    - Remove the remaing upstart pieces.

5d92575... by Alberto Milone on 2017-10-30

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.4.24 to ubuntu/bionic-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 519d513e7c3037199f5dc5bd0568ac651ac9efbb

New changelog entries:
  * gpu-manager.{c|py}:
    - Add support for forcing the dGPU on on hybrid systems.
      Creating an empty file named "force-dgpu-on"
      in the /usr/share/gpu-manager.d directory will force the dGPU
      on in power saving mode (LP: #1728547).

519d513... by Alberto Milone on 2017-05-11

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.4.23 to ubuntu/artful-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 03c9b9cb6ddd3cf18e0a3e7ad02e2d2437b59342

New changelog entries:
  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * gpu-manager.{c|py}:
    - Disable persistence mode before powering down the dGPU.
      If persistence mode is not disabled, gpu-manager will not be
      able to unload the nvidia module.
    - Add support for using custom xorg.confs with the nvidia
      driver (LP: #1667198).
      Custom xorg files can be named "non-hybrid" (for non hybrid
      systems), "hybrid-performance", and "hybrid-power-saving",
      and will have to placed in the /usr/share/gpu-manager.d
      directory.
      The directory can be overridden by passing another directory
      along with the "--custom-xorg-conf-path" parameter.
    - Add tests for the custom xorg.confs code and for amdgpu-pro
      hybrid support.
  [ Kai-Heng Feng ]
  * debian/control:
    - Add build dependency on libkmod-dev.
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Detect and handle switchable graphics with the amdgpu-pro driver.
      AMDGPU-Pro has its own script to switch between powersaving and
      performance mode.
      Some machines allow enabling switchable graphics, or disabling
      the iGPU completely, thus leaving only the dGPU on. This new code
      simply detects the different profiles supported by AMD, and
      enables powersaving mode when possible.

Import patches-unapplied version 1:0.4.21 to ubuntu/yakkety-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: f38da331fd6a212662fabe2c7495668e203428fb

New changelog entries:
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Make sure to load and unload the new nvidia-drm module.
      This fixes a problem that prevents the dGPU from being powered off
      in hybrid systems with recent nvidia drivers.
