  ubuntu-drivers-common (1: trusty-proposed; urgency=medium

  * Backport from yakkety version 1:0.4.22: gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Add all the necessary changes for nvidia and hybrid graphics to
      handle the new kernel modules and the EGL alternatives (LP: #1642662).
      Also detect the new amdgpu driver.
    - Leave gdm support disabled, since gdm is still missing a patch.

  * Backport from utopic version 1: debian/tests/system,
    tests/ubuntu_drivers.py, UbuntuDrivers/detect.py:
    - Revert the previous changes that made us switch from bcmwl to
      the open driver, as the latter (in order to be a full replacement)
      seems to require firmware that we cannot include in the Ubuntu
      image because of licensing issues (LP: #1481018).

  * gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Use the amdconfig tool to configure multi-amd PXpress. This
      fixes a problem where the AMD control panel won't show an
      option to switch between power saving mode and performance
      mode on AMD+AMD hybrid systems (LP: #1410801).
    - The tests now reflect a more relaxed approach so that we
      do not overwrite configurations that are not supported (such
      as multiple xscreens set in the xorg.conf).

  * sl-modem plugin: Keep environment for aplay, just ensure it's using the C
    locale. This avoids staring pulseaudio twice and causing races for
    attaching devices to pulseaudio. (LP: #1296425)

Source diff to previous version
1296425 pulseaudio is started twice - effectively making device management impossible.

  * gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Add support for testing core alternatives. This will be needed
      by fglrx.
    - Fix a regression that caused the gpu-manager to switch to mesa
      after enabling fglrx on hybrid systems (LP: #1310489). Also
      add a test case so that we don't regress in the future.
    - Check that either fglrx or nvidia is set in xorg.conf when
      xorg.conf is needed.
    - Check if kernel modules are blacklisted before choosing the
      driver (LP: #1310489).
    - Enable only GPUs with open drivers that have connected outputs.
      Attaching to GPUs that have no connected outputs would result
      in a black screen.
    - Allow RandR offloading even without bbswitch (LP: #1349282).
    - Fall back to mesa when failing to enable prime.
    - Do not try to enable prime if the nvidia driver is older than
    - Do not abort if the settings for prime cannot be found.
      Try to create the file before failing.
