Changelog

Version: 1:0.9.0~0.20.04.7 2022-05-03 20:06:22 UTC

  ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.9.0~0.20.04.7) focal; urgency=medium

  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py:
    - Handle Production branches (PB) (LP: #1964747).
    - Always prefer PB and LTSB, and pick the highest of the two
      whenever possible.
  * tests/test_ubuntu_drivers.py:
    - Add test_system_driver_packages_chroot_support_branch_pb and
      test_system_driver_packages_chroot_support_branch_pb_1, to
      keep track of our policy on PB and LTSB releases.

  * 71-u-d-c-gpu-detection.rules,
    gpu-manager.c:
    - Wait for the nvidia-drm module to be loaded. This works around
      a race condition, where nvidia-drm is loaded after gdm, and
      this causes gdm to hang (LP: #1958488).

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Make sure to also search the signed modules (LP: #1931514).
      Credit goes to Bin Li for the first version of this patch.
  * debian/tests/control:
    - Add dependency on alsa-utils, since the autopkgtest requires it
      for the sl-modem detection plugin.
  * ubuntu-drivers:
    - Do not install recommended dependencies when calling
      "install --gpgpu" (LP: #1898601). The whole point of
      having --gpgpu was to reduce the amount of the
      installed dependencies.

  [ Michael Hudson-Doyle ]
  * debian/control:
    - Drop dependency on alsa-utils as we want to start using ubuntu-drivers in
      the server installer but do not want alsa-utils there. The code using
      aplay to detect certain kinds of modem will fail to detect them if aplay
      is not installed but will not crash. As alsa-utils is in the
      desktop-common seed there should be no loss of functionality anywhere
      ubuntu-drivers is used today.

1898601 'ubuntu-drivers --gpgpu install' installs a lot of unnecessary packages, including a full desktop environment on Ubuntu Server
