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

211 Version 0.63 - 30 September 2008
212
213 - translations updates
214
215 Version 0.62 - 25 September 2008
216
217 - XFdrake:
218 o set "PreferredMode" in Monitor section if the user changes the resolution

222
223 - keyboarddrake:
224 o fix lithuanian keyboard choices (cf #41031)

236
237 - XFdrake:
238 o use 24dpp by default, even on DRI (needed for kde4)
239 o ensure we don't drop non-main "Device" (when modifying "Options", #41410)
240 o use nvidia-current default settings for nvidia173 as well
241 o no need to force XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps, it is the default now in
242 x11-server
243
244 Version 0.58 - 9 June 2008
245
246 - XFdrake:
247 o Composite is now the default in xserver 1.4 (#35043)
248 o do not create symlink /etc/X11/X to ../../usr/bin/Xorg (#41363)

293 o "ro" really is "ro(std_cedilla)"
294 (to be more standard on unpatched xkeyboard-config)
295 o "ro(us)" is wrong and not qwerty, use "ro(winkeys)" which is the only

297
298 Version 0.50 - 11 March 2008
299
300 - XFdrake:
301 o if the EDID gives a valid 16/10 preferred resolution (even if duplicated),

386
387 Version 0.36 - 4 October 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

412 let Xorg do things automatically) instead of good_default_monitor.
413 (requires monitor-edid 1.12)
414 - fix typo in 0.30: do not use "Automatic" resolution by default in --auto
415
416 Version 0.31 - 25 September 2007, by Thierry Vignaud

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

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