ubuntu-drivers-common 1:0.7.6 source package in Ubuntu


ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.7.6) eoan; urgency=medium

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Drop prime_is_action_on() (now that it isn't on/off any more)
      and update the description.
  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py,
    - Provide DKMS fallback for the "install --gpgpu" case
      when no linux-modules-nvidia are available for the driver
      and for a specific kernel (LP: #1843796).
      We have new tests to cover this scenario now.
    - Show provider of kernel modules in list --gpgpu
    - Fix linux metapackage detection.
      This was meant to be driven by the latest kernel version
      But it was only partially implemented.
      Complete the implementation and update the relevant tests.

  [ Daniel Dadap ]
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Enable power management in NVIDIA on-demand mode:
      The NVIDIA driver can suspend the GPU when it's being used as a
      PRIME render offload source and it isn't actively being used.
      disable_power_management() sets the NVIDIA GPU's power/control
      mode to "on", which prevents the GPU from suspending when it
      might otherwise be possible to do so.
    - Increase string storage on stack for path names. This fixes
      the warnings that gcc emits when building up path names.

Binary packages built by this source

dh-modaliases: debhelper extension for scanning kernel module aliases

 dh_modaliases is useful for packages that ship third-party kernel modules,
 either in binary form, or as sources (with e. g. DKMS). It extracts the
 modules' modaliases from either the compile .ko files themselves (for packages
 which ship them in compiled form, using modinfo), or from a package file
 This enables software which is looking for missing driver packages (such as
 Jockey or the operating system installer) to identify which package(s) will
 provide a driver for a piece of hardware, identified by its modalias.
