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

205
206 - translations updates
207
208 Version 0.62 - 25 September 2008
209
210 - XFdrake:
211 o set "PreferredMode" in Monitor section if the user changes the resolution
212 (we still do not use PreferredMode for the default resolution)

215
216 - keyboarddrake:
217 o fix lithuanian keyboard choices (cf #41031)

229
230 - XFdrake:
231 o use 24dpp by default, even on DRI (needed for kde4)
232 o ensure we don't drop non-main "Device" (when modifying "Options", #41410)
233 o use nvidia-current default settings for nvidia173 as well
234 o no need to force XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps, it is the default now in
235 x11-server
236
237 Version 0.58 - 9 June 2008
238
239 - XFdrake:
240 o Composite is now the default in xserver 1.4 (#35043)

291 Version 0.50 - 11 March 2008
292
293 - XFdrake:
294 o if the EDID gives a valid 16/10 preferred resolution (even if duplicated),

379
380 Version 0.36 - 4 October 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

404 monitor-get-edid-using-vbe failed), defaults to "Plug'n Play" monitor (ie
405 let Xorg do things automatically) instead of good_default_monitor.
406 (requires monitor-edid 1.12)
407 - fix typo in 0.30: do not use "Automatic" resolution by default in --auto

429
430 Version 0.27 - 19 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

432 - for evdev configured mice, specify bustype
433 (useful for "Macintosh mouse button emulation" which has same vendor/product
434 as "AT Translated Set 2 keyboard")
435 (need drakxtools-backend 10.4.203)
436
437 Version 0.26 - 17 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

449 - do not configure XFS, it's useless
450 - fix default_headers (ie allow XFdrake to create xorg.conf from scratch again)
451 - keep the order from MonitorsDB file
452 (allows "Flat Panel 800x600" to be before "Flat Panel 1024x768")
453 (needs a nicely sorted MonitorsDB though)
454

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

499 - add big standard resolutions (4/3, 16/10, 16/9)
500 - [bugfix] fix test message not translated (#30261)
501 - remove all fglrx options, hopefully default is good enough
502 (and at least MonitorLayout option is depreacated as reported on cooker)
503
504 Version 0.17 - 9 May 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
505
