Import cleaned drakx-kbd-mouse-x11
1 dmorgan 391 - use UseEdid instead of IgnoreEDID with nvidia96xx since the latter is
2     obsolete (#40006)
3     - remove "3D hardware acceleration" from the UI, it will always be enabled
4     by default since we unconditionnally add the "dri" module to xorg.conf now
5     (#58933)
6    
7     Version 0.90 - 26 May 2010
8    
9     - translation updates
10    
11     Version 0.89 - 11 May 2010
12    
13     - mouse:
14     o remove imwheel support
15    
16     Version 0.88 - 25 February 2010
17    
18     - rename wacom driver package to its current name
19     - remove obsoleted video drivers from video driver list, add some new ones
20    
21     Version 0.87 - 9 February 2010
22    
23     - XFdrake:
24     o use -X option for ldconfig when switching alternatives, we only need the
25     cache rebuilt (Anssi Hannula)
26     o do not disable Composite extension by default when using fglrx driver
27     (Anssi Hannula)
28     o do not disable loading of dri module for non-glx drivers, as KMS drivers
29     require it as well
30     o do not disable loading of glx module for fbdev, in order to allow AIGLX
31     to work in software rasterizer mode
32     o do not add dbe and extmod modules to xorg.conf anymore, they are loaded
33     by default anyway
34    
35     Version 0.86 - 26 November 2009
36    
37     - keyboarddrake:
38     o make sure to properly init the console keymap before dumping it during
39     initial configuration, should fix console keymap setting in finish-install
40    
41     Version 0.85 - 22 October 2009
42    
43     - mousedrake:
44     o fix input module path on 64 bit machines
45     o don't install input drivers if X isn't here
46     - XFdrake:
47     o enable ctrl+alt+backspace by default
48    
49     Version 0.84 - 9 October 2009
50    
51     - run ldconfig after update-alternatives during installer too
52     (psb alternative does not have a higher priority than standard
53     alternative, and ldconfig was run by the installer only before
54     manually setting the alternative, which was not enough)
55    
56     Version 0.83 - 8 October 2009
57    
58     - use 28.8kHz as lower HorizSync (for 800x480)
59    
60     Version 0.82 - 23 September 2009
61    
62     - don't consider xorg.conf files with no InputDevice sections as invalid, fixes bug reported on cooker mailing list
63    
64     Version 0.81 - 23 September 2009
65    
66     - add psb driver support (for Poulsbo chipset)
67    
68     Version 0.80 - 22 September 2009
69    
70     - XFdrake:
71     o don't write sections in xorg.conf for USB wacom tablets, Synaptics
72     touchpads, mouses using "evdev" or "mouse" and keyboards
73    
74     Version 0.79 - 14 September 2009
75    
76     - XFdrake:
77     o fix DontZap option issue with old xorg.conf files
78     - allow to skip framebuffer setup (and thus splash removal) for newer
79     harddrake releases
80    
81     Version 0.78 - 9 September 2009
82    
83     - XFdrake:
84     o added "Disable Ctrl-Alt-Backspace" option
85    
86     Version 0.77 - 22 July 2009
87    
88     - XFdrake:
89     o correctly detect proprietary drivers that are located in
90     /usr/lib/drivername/xorg (#52384)
91    
92     Version 0.76 - 25 June 2009
93    
94     - keyboarddrake:
95     o update the xkb HAL keys when the keyboard layout is changed so that it
96     persists after a X server restart. Bug #49725
97     - XFdrake:
98     o when probing for video cards, ignore cards which are not in the VIDEO_VGA
99     PCI class (it is pretty common for dual-head ATI cards to have a
100     VIDEO_OTHER device for example). This has the potential of breaking
101     dual head setups, so it needs careful testing in Cooker ;) See bug #48028
102     o fix crash when both monitor and driver can not be probed (in
103     harddrake service or XFdrake --auto), for example with some Quanta
104     IL1 netbooks using Chrome9 IC3
105    
106     Version 0.74 - 22 April 2009
107    
108     - mousedrake:
109     o fix vmmouse configuration for vmware (#49654)
110    
111     Version 0.73 - 21 April 2009
112    
113     - tweak Intel driver accel methods in xorg.conf so that it's more consistent
114     with what the new Intel driver expects.
115    
116     Version 0.72 - 15 April 2009
117    
118     - XFdrake:
119     o fix selecting proprietary drivers with xdriver=DRIVER boot option
120     o do not add Load "freetype" to xorg.conf as the module does not exist
121     anymore
122     o use Plug'n'Play monitor when in vbox and don't specify any default
123     resolution, fixes #49642
124    
125     Version 0.71 - 2 April 2009
126    
127     - XFdrake:
128     o add support for xdriver=DRIVER kernel boot option that affects
129     non-interactive device autodetection, e.g. One boot
130     (special value xdriver=free disables proprietary drivers)
131     o add nouveau driver into the driver list
132    
133     Version 0.70 - 20 March 2009
134    
135     - mousedrake:
136     o configure input driver as 'vmmouse' if running in vmware (#29106)
137     o test if the file is there before trying to install the packages, that saves
138     a rpm -q in harddrake service after adding/removing/changing a mouse
139     - XFdrake:
140     o adapt for recent changes in proprietary driver alternatives
141    
142     Version 0.69 - 29 January 2009
143    
144     - XFdrake:
145     o use option -noAutoAddDevices when testing X
146     (useful during installation, #47237)
147    
148     Version 0.68 - 28 January 2009
149    
150     - keyboarddrake:
151     o bug fix: overwrite previous /etc/sysconfig/keyboard Xkb information when
152     changing keyboard
153    
154     Version 0.67 - 8 January 2009
155    
156     - mousedrake:
157     o synaptics driver in now in package x11-driver-input-synaptics (#45531)
158    
159     Version 0.66 - 18 December 2008
160    
161     - keyboarddrake:
162     o do not configure hal directly, but write in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard Xkb
163     information so hal can get them
164     o new option "--migrate" which adds Xkb information in
165     /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
166     o correctly handle default XkbModel
167     (so that we do not force pc105 when we should not)
168    
169     Version 0.65 - 8 December 2008
170    
171     - keyboarddrake:
172     o configure hal so Xorg can get xkb info
173     (nb: for now, you must "service haldaemon restart" to be taken into account)
174     - XFdrake:
175     o generic flat planel must allow "800x480 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 29.82 kHz"
176     so "HorizSync 31.5-90" is too strict, generating "HorizSync 29.5-90"
177     o have Option "PanelGeometry" "XXxYY" on geode driver
178     o do not display the weird ratios 128/75, 85/48 (for 1024x600 and 1360x768)
179     o do not load "Type1" module by default (disabled in xserver-1.5.x)
180     o special hack for gdium: the "default monitor" is "Plug'n Play" instead of
181     good_default_monitor() (it will work since the resolution is passed to the
182     kernel on gdium)
183     o there is no reason "automatic" resolution should imply "automatic" color
184     depth
185     - mousedrake, XFdrake:
186     o do not use /dev/mouse symlink (in xorg.conf)
187     - mousedrake
188     o do not propose to test the chosen mice
189     (it doesn't handle evdev/synaptics and so is quite obsolete nowadays)
190    
191     Version 0.64 - 1 October 2008
192    
193     - XFdrake:
194     o explicitly Load or Disable module "dri"
195     (to be independent of Xorg's default choice)

200    
201     Version 0.62 - 25 September 2008
202    
203     - XFdrake:
204     o set "PreferredMode" in Monitor section if the user changes the resolution
205     (we still do not use PreferredMode for the default resolution)
206    
207     Version 0.61 - 11 September 2008

225     o ensure we don't drop non-main "Device" (when modifying "Options", #41410)
226     o use nvidia-current default settings for nvidia173 as well
227     o no need to force XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps, it is the default now in

230     Version 0.58 - 9 June 2008
231    
232     - XFdrake:

234     o do not create symlink /etc/X11/X to ../../usr/bin/Xorg (#41363)
235     o drop support for /etc/X11/XF86Config (replaced by xorg.conf for some time now)
236     - mousedrake:
237     o evdev and imwheel handle orthogonal things, so do use imwheel even if we
238     need evdev (#40088)

240     Version 0.57 - 2 April 2008
241    
242     - XFdrake:

255     o in drakx-finish-install, keyboard is asked after asking country, so have a
256     good default based on country too (was done for pt_BR but not fr_XX)
257     (#39221)
258    
259     Version 0.53 - 21 March 2008
260    
261     - XFdrake:

278     o default romanian keyboard is qwerty (cf #38450)
279     o "ro" really is "ro(std_cedilla)"
280     (to be more standard on unpatched xkeyboard-config)
281     o "ro(us)" is wrong and not qwerty, use "ro(winkeys)" which is the only
282     qwertz from symbols/ro
283    
284     Version 0.50 - 11 March 2008
285    
286     - XFdrake:
287     o if the EDID gives a valid 16/10 preferred resolution (even if duplicated),
288     but no HorizSync/VertRefresh, use a generic flat panel
289     HorizSync/VertRefresh (needed for edid.lcd.dell-inspiron-6400, #37971)
290     o handle DRIVER2_NO_SSE (from Cards+), needed by nvidia-current requiring SSE
291    
292     Version 0.49 - 28 February 2008
293    
294     - XFdrake: background images are now jpeg files

347     - XFdrake:
348     o never write a ModeLine when using fglrx driver (#30934)

372    
373     Version 0.36 - 4 October 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

390     - add support for x11-driver-input-vboxmouse when inside a VirtualBox guest
391     - fix typo in 0.32: don't wrongly default to "automatic" resolution when

395    
396     - monitor-probe-using-X can now return EDIDs. if Xorg find an EDID (whereas
397     monitor-get-edid-using-vbe failed), defaults to "Plug'n Play" monitor (ie
398     let Xorg do things automatically) instead of good_default_monitor.
399     (requires monitor-edid 1.12)
400     - fix typo in 0.30: do not use "Automatic" resolution by default in --auto
401    
402     Version 0.31 - 25 September 2007, by Thierry Vignaud
403    
404     - updated translation

418    
419     - when using evdev for mice, ensure it doesn't match a keyboard
420     (eg: in case of a mouse+keyboard combo) (#32905)
421     - fix regression in 0.24: remove bogus duplicates in monitors tree (#33778)
422    
423     Version 0.27 - 19 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
424    
425     - for evdev configured mice, specify bustype
426     (useful for "Macintosh mouse button emulation" which has same vendor/product
427     as "AT Translated Set 2 keyboard")
428     (need drakxtools-backend 10.4.203)
429    
430     Version 0.26 - 17 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
431

439    
440     Version 0.24 - 7 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
441    
442     - do not configure XFS, it's useless
443     - fix default_headers (ie allow XFdrake to create xorg.conf from scratch again)
444     - keep the order from MonitorsDB file
445     (allows "Flat Panel 800x600" to be before "Flat Panel 1024x768")
446     (needs a nicely sorted MonitorsDB though)
447    
448     Version 0.23 - 6 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
449    
450     - do not start xfs for the test (#33219)
