 vdr (1.2.6-8) unstable; urgency=low
   * Thomas Schmidt <tschmidt at>
     - Removed patch which fixes the compilation with gcc-4.0 on 
       amd64 as it causes vdr to crash, will have to investigate 
       this further, before the patch can be re-added 
       (closes: #295838)
 vdr (1.2.6-7) unstable; urgency=low
   * Thomas Schmidt <tschmidt at>
     - This is the first upload of vdr, i can do by myself, i want 
       to thank Andreas Müller (amu) and Christoph Martin (chrism) 
       for their help with sponsoring previous uploads
     - Only try to change capabilities when vdr is called by root 
       (closes: #293042)
     - Added patch from Andreas Jochens to fix the FTBFS on amd64
       with gcc-4.0 (closes: #294041)
     - Changed my email-address to the new debian one
     - Make an entry in syslog when someone tries to shutdown vdr
       while the automatic shutdown is disabled
 vdr (1.2.6-6) unstable; urgency=high
   * Urgency high because it includes a fix for CAN-2005-0071
   * Thomas Günther <tom at>
     - new (optional) plugin check (with "vdr -V -P plugin")
     - Extracted patchlevel code to 
     - Installing into vdr-dev package
   * Tobias Grimm <tg at> 
     - fixed small bug in vdr-recordingaction
       PLUGIN_ORDER_FILE, CMDHOOKSDIR, REC_CMD from the default file to 
       the init script
     - fixed bug in shutdown script (OSD messages have to be deferred until
       the shutdown script is finished)
     - removed PLUGIN_ORDER_FILE paramter, order.conf should always be in
     - set default location for to /var/cache/vdr (vdr -E)
     - The default command to shutdown the system when the power-off-key of the
       remote is pressed, can now be configured in /etc/default/vdr.
     - When processing the shutdown hooks, no further hook scripts will be
       processed, if one script requests to delay the shutdown.
     - Extracted loading of VDR daemon config options to separate file for
       later reuse by other start scripts
     - Fixed warning message in generated commands.conf and reccmds.conf  
   * Thomas Schmidt < at>
     - Do not run as user root anymore, the user vdr will be created
       and the video-directory and config-files will be changed, so the
       owner/group is vdr:vdr (closes: #287899)
     - Added 07_not_as_root.dpatch - vdr exists when it should run as
       user or with group-id root (adapted from Darren Salt's patch 
       for vdr 1.3.x)
     - Added 08_security_CAN-2005-0071.dpatch - do not overwrite 
       existing files with the GRAB-Command anymore (CAN-2005-0071)
     - Set default port for SVDRP to 0, users who run vdr from the 
       commandline will have to enable it by using the --port option
       (in the init-script SVDRP will still be enabled and on the default 
       port 2001)
     - Added vdr-shutdown.wrapper with owner/group root:vdr and mode 6750, 
       which calls the normal vdr-shutdown-script so that the user vdr is 
       able to run vdr's shutdown-hooks
     - The automatic shutdown is now disabled by default, to enable it 
       again you have to change ENABLE_SHUTDOWN=0 to 1 in /etc/default/vdr
     - Changed package vdr to Architecture: any, because it now contains
       a binary file
     - Added patch from Ludwig Nussel to be able to syncronize the system-
       time via DVB, even when vdr runs as user
     - Build-depend on libcap-dev
     - Package vdr: depend on adduser
     - Remove some files under /var/lib/vdr and /var/cache/vdr in postrm 
       on purge (closes: #287914)
     - Added german (de.po) debconf-translation from Jens Nachtigall 
       <nachtigall at> (closes: #273643)
     - Added a note to the package description and README.Debian that vdr
       (without special plugins) requires a DVB-Card with an mpeg-decoder
       (Closes: #287428)
     - Improved runvdr-script: when no loaded dvb-modules were found, 
       try to load the module dvb (could be an alias for the real 
     - Added XB-VDR-Patchlevel-field in debian/control to vdr-plugin-sky 
       and vdr-plugin-examples
     - Build-depend on dpatch (>= 2.0.9)
     - Converted existing dpatch-files to the new short format
     - Added newplugin-script as vdr-newplugin to vdr-dev, so 
       plugin-developers can initialize a new plugin-directory without a 
       normal vdr-source-tree
     - Added debianize-vdrplugin-script and the plugin-template-dir from 
     - Added lintian-override to avoid the lintian-warnings for the
     - Default VIDEO_DIR is now /var/lib/video.00, so new harddiscs can
       be added very easy by mounting them to /var/lib/video.0{1,2,...}
       (if the old directory /var/lib/video exists, create 
       /var/lib/video.00 as symlink to the old directory, if it does
       not exist, /var/lib/video will be a symlink to /var/lib/video.00)
     - Removed unnecessary debconf-question about creating the dvb 
       devices, they will now be created without any question when they
       are not existing allready
     - Removed libncurses5-dev from Build-Depends
