X-Video Bitstream Acceleration (XvBA), designed by AMD for its (ATI) Radeon GPU
and Fusion APU, is an arbitrary extension of the X video extension (Xv) for the
X Window System on Linux operating-systems. XvBA API allows video programs to
offload portions of the video decoding process to the GPU video-hardware.
Currently, the portions designed to be offloaded by XvBA onto the GPU are
motion compensation (MC) and inverse discrete cosine transform (IDCT), and
variable-length decoding (VLD) for MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) and VC-1 encoded
This package contains the runtime libraries.

fglrx-legacy-driver ( wheezy-backports; urgency=low
* Rebuild for wheezy-backports.
2013-05-11 - Andreas Beckmann <>
fglrx-legacy-driver ( unstable; urgency=low
* Rename the binary packages that are currently not built from this source
to avoid the potential conflict that prevented autobuilding.
(Closes: #707694)
2013-05-05 - Andreas Beckmann <>
fglrx-legacy-driver ( unstable; urgency=low
* Merged from fglrx-driver:
- Add patch 06-stub-for-agpless-kernel to add stub for missing symbol for
kernels built without CONFIG_AGP.
- Add new script.
- Drop Conflicts/Breaks/Replaces that are satisfied in wheezy.
- Drop versioned Pre-Depends on dpkg. We only support installing on and
upgrading from wheezy or newer.
- Use canonical Vcs-* URLs.
- Simplify importing signature files.
* Upload to unstable.
2013-02-15 - Andreas Beckmann <>
fglrx-legacy-driver ( experimental; urgency=low
* New Catalyst Legacy 13.1 Release (2013-01-21).
* Merged from fglrx-driver:
- Update my email address.
- Debconf translation updates.
- Add patch 04-linux-3.7 to fix a FTBFS with Linux 3.7.  (Closes: #697515)
- Add patch 05-linux-3.8 to add Linux 3.8 support.
- Add new script.
- Bump glx-alternative-fglrx dependency for new blacklist handling.
- Purging fglrx-driver is no longer required for switching to Radeon.
- debian/rules get-orig-source: Adjust for upstream changing the naming
and versioning scheme.
- Repack into .xz.
- Switch .deb compression to xz.
- libgl1-fglrx-legacy-glx:i386: Breaks: ia32-libs (<< 1:0).
- Remove DM-Upload-Allowed control field, it is obsolete.
- Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.4 (no changes needed).
* debian/watch, debian/rules: Adjust for new upstream release naming scheme.
2012-09-10 - Andreas Beckmann <>
fglrx-legacy-driver ( experimental; urgency=low
* New Catalyst Legacy 12.6 Release (2012-07-24).
- Upstream changed zipfile content but neither name nor internal version.
- Comes with a proper signature.  (Closes: #684702)
* Update Homepage to point to the legacy driver.
* Merged from fglrx-driver:
- fglrx-source: Add Built-Using attribute to the generated module packages
to record the exact versions of linux and fglrx-driver that were used
during the build.
- libgl1-fglrx-glx:i386: Add Breaks: ia32-libs (<< 20120701) because that
is still shipping /usr/lib32/ which gets no longer diverted
- fglrx-atieventsd: Add Depends: glx-alternative-fglrx to ensure the
triggers are processed and the glx alternative is properly setup before
the atieventsd is started.  (Closes: #684000)
- Check for "UNSIGNED" in /etc/ati/signature during package build to
prevent reappearence of bugs like #684702.
- README.Debian: Add link to unofficial bugzilla for upstream bug reports.
