This package provides the source for the NVIDIA Xorg binary kernel module
needed by nvidia-legacy-96xx-driver in a form suitable
for use by module-assistant or kernel-package.
The NVIDIA binary drivers provide optimized hardware acceleration of
OpenGL applications via a direct-rendering X Server for graphics cards
using NVIDIA chip sets.  AGP, PCIe, SLI, TV-out and flat panel displays
are also supported.
PLEASE read /usr/share/doc/nvidia-legacy-96xx-kernel-source/README.Debian.gz
for building information.  If you want the kernel module to be automatically
installed via DKMS, install nvidia-legacy-96xx-kernel-dkms instead.

There are several "more modern" GPUs supported by this package, too, but the
updated drivers in the newer legacy packages or the current nvidia-driver
package usually provide more features and better support.
See /usr/share/doc/nvidia-legacy-96xx-kernel-source/README.txt.gz
for a complete list of supported GPUs and PCI IDs.

nvidia-graphics-drivers-legacy-96xx (96.43.23-7~bpo70+1) wheezy-backports; urgency=low
* Rebuild for wheezy-backports.
2013-09-15 - Andreas Beckmann <anbe@debian.org>
nvidia-graphics-drivers-legacy-96xx (96.43.23-7) unstable; urgency=low
* Synchronize packaging with nvidia-graphics-drivers 304.108-2:
- Change the virtual package name providing the kernel module to follow
the renamed module.
* Synchronize packaging with nvidia-graphics-drivers 304.108-3:
- Rework patching after unpack: rename
debian/patches-manual => debian/patches, series => series-postunpack.
- conftest.h:
+ Implement new conftest.sh function get_num_physpages (173.14.38).
- Bump glx-alternative-nvidia dependency to 0.4.
* Synchronize packaging with nvidia-graphics-drivers-legacy-173xx
* Regenerate linux-3.11.patch by backporting the 173.14.38 upstream fix.
