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

214
215 - translations updates
216
217 Version 0.62 - 25 September 2008
218
219 - XFdrake:

241 o ensure we don't drop non-main "Device" (when modifying "Options", #41410)
242 o use nvidia-current default settings for nvidia173 as well
243 o no need to force XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps, it is the default now in
244 x11-server
245
246 Version 0.58 - 9 June 2008
247
248 - XFdrake:
249 o Composite is now the default in xserver 1.4 (#35043)

301
302 - XFdrake:
303 o if the EDID gives a valid 16/10 preferred resolution (even if duplicated),

458 - do not configure XFS, it's useless
459 - fix default_headers (ie allow XFdrake to create xorg.conf from scratch again)
460 - keep the order from MonitorsDB file
461 (allows "Flat Panel 800x600" to be before "Flat Panel 1024x768")
462 (needs a nicely sorted MonitorsDB though)
463

489 and fixing setting them
490 (eg #31942 where one can't click "Options" after setting EXA)
491 - drop support for installing/configuring 915resolution
492 (no more needed since x11-driver-video-intel 2.0)
