1 anssi 958 - disable debug output of display_driver_helper by default
2 anssi 959 - fix ahead-of-X-server loading of proprietary and fglrx kernel modules
3 anssi 958
4 anssi 914 Version 0.93 - 17 April 2011
5    
6 anssi 912 - add display_driver_helper script (used by XFdrake, udev, drakx, dkms)
7     - add/remove nokmsboot boot option as needed
8 anssi 913 - ask for reboot instead of X server restart, as it is commonly needed
9 anssi 912
10 dmorgan 866 Version 0.92 - 10 April 2011
11 anssi 914
12 dmorgan 866 - fix runned program in Keyboard.pm (#750)
13    
14 ennael 760 Version 0.91 - 30 March 2011
15    
16     - evdev needs to be loaded before calling getInputDevices_and_usb
17     else it will lead to a crash (pterjan)
18 dmorgan 391 - use UseEdid instead of IgnoreEDID with nvidia96xx since the latter is
19     obsolete (#40006)
20     - remove "3D hardware acceleration" from the UI, it will always be enabled
21     by default since we unconditionnally add the "dri" module to xorg.conf now
22     (#58933)
23    
24     Version 0.90 - 26 May 2010
25    
26     - translation updates
27    
28     Version 0.89 - 11 May 2010
29    
30     - mouse:
31     o remove imwheel support
32    
33     Version 0.88 - 25 February 2010
34    
35     - rename wacom driver package to its current name
36     - remove obsoleted video drivers from video driver list, add some new ones
37    
38     Version 0.87 - 9 February 2010
39    
40     - XFdrake:
41     o use -X option for ldconfig when switching alternatives, we only need the
42     cache rebuilt (Anssi Hannula)
43     o do not disable Composite extension by default when using fglrx driver
44     (Anssi Hannula)
45     o do not disable loading of dri module for non-glx drivers, as KMS drivers
46     require it as well
47     o do not disable loading of glx module for fbdev, in order to allow AIGLX
48     to work in software rasterizer mode
49     o do not add dbe and extmod modules to xorg.conf anymore, they are loaded
50     by default anyway
51    
52     Version 0.86 - 26 November 2009
53    
54     - keyboarddrake:
55     o make sure to properly init the console keymap before dumping it during
56     initial configuration, should fix console keymap setting in finish-install
57    
58     Version 0.85 - 22 October 2009
59    
60     - mousedrake:
61     o fix input module path on 64 bit machines
62     o don't install input drivers if X isn't here
63     - XFdrake:
64     o enable ctrl+alt+backspace by default
65    
66     Version 0.84 - 9 October 2009
67    
68     - run ldconfig after update-alternatives during installer too
69     (psb alternative does not have a higher priority than standard
70     alternative, and ldconfig was run by the installer only before
71     manually setting the alternative, which was not enough)
72    
73     Version 0.83 - 8 October 2009
74    
75     - use 28.8kHz as lower HorizSync (for 800x480)
76    
77     Version 0.82 - 23 September 2009
78    
79     - don't consider xorg.conf files with no InputDevice sections as invalid, fixes bug reported on cooker mailing list
80    
81     Version 0.81 - 23 September 2009
82    
83     - add psb driver support (for Poulsbo chipset)
84    
85     Version 0.80 - 22 September 2009
86    
87     - XFdrake:
88     o don't write sections in xorg.conf for USB wacom tablets, Synaptics
89     touchpads, mouses using "evdev" or "mouse" and keyboards
90    
91     Version 0.79 - 14 September 2009
92    
93     - XFdrake:
94     o fix DontZap option issue with old xorg.conf files
95     - allow to skip framebuffer setup (and thus splash removal) for newer
96     harddrake releases
97    
98     Version 0.78 - 9 September 2009
99    
100     - XFdrake:
101     o added "Disable Ctrl-Alt-Backspace" option
102    
103     Version 0.77 - 22 July 2009
104    
105     - XFdrake:
106     o correctly detect proprietary drivers that are located in
107     /usr/lib/drivername/xorg (#52384)
108    
109     Version 0.76 - 25 June 2009
110    
111     - keyboarddrake:
112     o update the xkb HAL keys when the keyboard layout is changed so that it
113     persists after a X server restart. Bug #49725
114     - XFdrake:
115     o when probing for video cards, ignore cards which are not in the VIDEO_VGA
116     PCI class (it is pretty common for dual-head ATI cards to have a
117     VIDEO_OTHER device for example). This has the potential of breaking
118     dual head setups, so it needs careful testing in Cooker ;) See bug #48028
119     o fix crash when both monitor and driver can not be probed (in
120     harddrake service or XFdrake --auto), for example with some Quanta
121     IL1 netbooks using Chrome9 IC3
122    
123     Version 0.74 - 22 April 2009
124    
125     - mousedrake:
126     o fix vmmouse configuration for vmware (#49654)
127    
128     Version 0.73 - 21 April 2009
129    
130     - tweak Intel driver accel methods in xorg.conf so that it's more consistent
131     with what the new Intel driver expects.
132    
133     Version 0.72 - 15 April 2009
134    
135     - XFdrake:
136     o fix selecting proprietary drivers with xdriver=DRIVER boot option
137     o do not add Load "freetype" to xorg.conf as the module does not exist
138     anymore
139     o use Plug'n'Play monitor when in vbox and don't specify any default
140     resolution, fixes #49642
141    
142     Version 0.71 - 2 April 2009
143    
144     - XFdrake:
145     o add support for xdriver=DRIVER kernel boot option that affects
146     non-interactive device autodetection, e.g. One boot
147     (special value xdriver=free disables proprietary drivers)
148     o add nouveau driver into the driver list
149    
150     Version 0.70 - 20 March 2009
151    
152     - mousedrake:
153     o configure input driver as 'vmmouse' if running in vmware (#29106)
154     o test if the file is there before trying to install the packages, that saves
155     a rpm -q in harddrake service after adding/removing/changing a mouse
156     - XFdrake:
157     o adapt for recent changes in proprietary driver alternatives
158    
159     Version 0.69 - 29 January 2009
160    
161     - XFdrake:
162     o use option -noAutoAddDevices when testing X
163     (useful during installation, #47237)
164    
165     Version 0.68 - 28 January 2009
166    
167     - keyboarddrake:
168     o bug fix: overwrite previous /etc/sysconfig/keyboard Xkb information when
169     changing keyboard
170    
171     Version 0.67 - 8 January 2009
172    
173     - mousedrake:
174     o synaptics driver in now in package x11-driver-input-synaptics (#45531)
175    
176     Version 0.66 - 18 December 2008
177    
178     - keyboarddrake:
179     o do not configure hal directly, but write in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard Xkb
180     information so hal can get them
181     o new option "--migrate" which adds Xkb information in
182     /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
183     o correctly handle default XkbModel
184     (so that we do not force pc105 when we should not)
185    
186     Version 0.65 - 8 December 2008
187    
188     - keyboarddrake:
189     o configure hal so Xorg can get xkb info
190     (nb: for now, you must "service haldaemon restart" to be taken into account)
191     - XFdrake:
192     o generic flat planel must allow "800x480 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 29.82 kHz"
193     so "HorizSync 31.5-90" is too strict, generating "HorizSync 29.5-90"
194     o have Option "PanelGeometry" "XXxYY" on geode driver
195     o do not display the weird ratios 128/75, 85/48 (for 1024x600 and 1360x768)
196     o do not load "Type1" module by default (disabled in xserver-1.5.x)
197     o special hack for gdium: the "default monitor" is "Plug'n Play" instead of
198     good_default_monitor() (it will work since the resolution is passed to the
199     kernel on gdium)
200     o there is no reason "automatic" resolution should imply "automatic" color
201     depth
202     - mousedrake, XFdrake:
203     o do not use /dev/mouse symlink (in xorg.conf)
204     - mousedrake
205     o do not propose to test the chosen mice
206     (it doesn't handle evdev/synaptics and so is quite obsolete nowadays)
207    
208     Version 0.64 - 1 October 2008
209    
210     - XFdrake:
211     o explicitly Load or Disable module "dri"

218     Version 0.62 - 25 September 2008
219    
220     - XFdrake:
221     o set "PreferredMode" in Monitor section if the user changes the resolution
222     (we still do not use PreferredMode for the default resolution)

247     Version 0.58 - 9 June 2008
248    
249     - XFdrake:

251     o do not create symlink /etc/X11/X to ../../usr/bin/Xorg (#41363)
252     o drop support for /etc/X11/XF86Config (replaced by xorg.conf for some time now)
253     - mousedrake:
254     o evdev and imwheel handle orthogonal things, so do use imwheel even if we
255     need evdev (#40088)
256    
257     Version 0.57 - 2 April 2008
258    
259     - XFdrake:

272     o in drakx-finish-install, keyboard is asked after asking country, so have a
273     good default based on country too (was done for pt_BR but not fr_XX)
274     (#39221)
275    
276     Version 0.53 - 21 March 2008
277    
278     - XFdrake:

296     o "ro" really is "ro(std_cedilla)"
297     (to be more standard on unpatched xkeyboard-config)
298     o "ro(us)" is wrong and not qwerty, use "ro(winkeys)" which is the only
299     qwertz from symbols/ro
300    
301     Version 0.50 - 11 March 2008
302    
303     - XFdrake:
304     o if the EDID gives a valid 16/10 preferred resolution (even if duplicated),
305     but no HorizSync/VertRefresh, use a generic flat panel
306     HorizSync/VertRefresh (needed for edid.lcd.dell-inspiron-6400, #37971)
307     o handle DRIVER2_NO_SSE (from Cards+), needed by nvidia-current requiring SSE
308    
309     Version 0.49 - 28 February 2008
310    
311     - XFdrake: background images are now jpeg files
312    
313     Version 0.48 - 28 February 2008

341    
342     - XFdrake:
343     o if the EDID gives a valid EISA_ID, a valid 16/10 preferred resolution, but

358    
359     - mousedrake:

361    
362     Version 0.40 - 10 December 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
363    
364     - XFdrake:
365     o never write a ModeLine when using fglrx driver (#30934)

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

412    
413     - monitor-probe-using-X can now return EDIDs. if Xorg find an EDID (whereas
414     monitor-get-edid-using-vbe failed), defaults to "Plug'n Play" monitor (ie
415     let Xorg do things automatically) instead of good_default_monitor.
416     (requires monitor-edid 1.12)
417     - fix typo in 0.30: do not use "Automatic" resolution by default in --auto
418    
419     Version 0.31 - 25 September 2007, by Thierry Vignaud
420    
421     - updated translation

434     Version 0.28 - 20 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
435    
436     - when using evdev for mice, ensure it doesn't match a keyboard
437     (eg: in case of a mouse+keyboard combo) (#32905)
438     - fix regression in 0.24: remove bogus duplicates in monitors tree (#33778)
439    
440     Version 0.27 - 19 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
441    
442     - for evdev configured mice, specify bustype
443     (useful for "Macintosh mouse button emulation" which has same vendor/product
444     as "AT Translated Set 2 keyboard")
445     (need drakxtools-backend 10.4.203)
446    
447     Version 0.26 - 17 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
448
