Import cleaned drakx-kbd-mouse-x11
1 - 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)
196
197 Version 0.63 - 30 September 2008
198
199 - translations updates
200
201 Version 0.62 - 25 September 2008
202

222
223 - XFdrake:

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
228 x11-server
229
230 Version 0.58 - 9 June 2008
231
232 - XFdrake:
233 o Composite is now the default in xserver 1.4 (#35043)

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),

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

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

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

470 - fix detection of touchpad on some kernels (#31584)
471 (need drakxtools-backend >= 10.4.145)
472 - internal: add many options as having to be used only once, easing their use
473 and fixing setting them
474 (eg #31942 where one can't click "Options" after setting EXA)
475 - drop support for installing/configuring 915resolution
476 (no more needed since x11-driver-video-intel 2.0)

492 - add big standard resolutions (4/3, 16/10, 16/9)
493 - [bugfix] fix test message not translated (#30261)
494 - remove all fglrx options, hopefully default is good enough
495 (and at least MonitorLayout option is depreacated as reported on cooker)
496
497 Version 0.17 - 9 May 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
498
499 - fix using proprietary driver (remove debug code) (thanks to Michael Altizer)
