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

207 Version 0.63 - 30 September 2008
208
209 - translations updates
210
211 Version 0.62 - 25 September 2008
212
213 - XFdrake:
214 o set "PreferredMode" in Monitor section if the user changes the resolution
215 (we still do not use PreferredMode for the default resolution)

218
219 - keyboarddrake:
220 o fix lithuanian keyboard choices (cf #41031)

232
233 - XFdrake:
234 o use 24dpp by default, even on DRI (needed for kde4)
235 o ensure we don't drop non-main "Device" (when modifying "Options", #41410)
236 o use nvidia-current default settings for nvidia173 as well
237 o no need to force XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps, it is the default now in
238 x11-server
239
240 Version 0.58 - 9 June 2008
241
242 - XFdrake:
243 o Composite is now the default in xserver 1.4 (#35043)

293
294 Version 0.50 - 11 March 2008
295
296 - XFdrake:
297 o if the EDID gives a valid 16/10 preferred resolution (even if duplicated),

382
383 Version 0.36 - 4 October 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

408 let Xorg do things automatically) instead of good_default_monitor.
409 (requires monitor-edid 1.12)
410 - fix typo in 0.30: do not use "Automatic" resolution by default in --auto
411
412 Version 0.31 - 25 September 2007, by Thierry Vignaud

432
433 Version 0.27 - 19 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

435 - for evdev configured mice, specify bustype
436 (useful for "Macintosh mouse button emulation" which has same vendor/product
437 as "AT Translated Set 2 keyboard")
438 (need drakxtools-backend 10.4.203)
439
440 Version 0.26 - 17 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

452 - do not configure XFS, it's useless
453 - fix default_headers (ie allow XFdrake to create xorg.conf from scratch again)
454 - keep the order from MonitorsDB file
455 (allows "Flat Panel 800x600" to be before "Flat Panel 1024x768")
456 (needs a nicely sorted MonitorsDB though)
457
458 Version 0.23 - 6 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

478 Version 0.20 - 3 August 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
479
480 - fix detection of touchpad on some kernels (#31584)
481 (need drakxtools-backend >= 10.4.145)
482 - internal: add many options as having to be used only once, easing their use
483 and fixing setting them
484 (eg #31942 where one can't click "Options" after setting EXA)
485 - drop support for installing/configuring 915resolution
486 (no more needed since x11-driver-video-intel 2.0)
487 - do not configure using xfs anymore (#32051)
488
489 Version 0.19 - 9 July 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

502 - add big standard resolutions (4/3, 16/10, 16/9)
503 - [bugfix] fix test message not translated (#30261)
504 - remove all fglrx options, hopefully default is good enough
