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

215
216 - translations updates
217
218 Version 0.62 - 25 September 2008
219
220 - XFdrake:
221 o set "PreferredMode" in Monitor section if the user changes the resolution

239
240 - XFdrake:

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

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

459 - do not configure XFS, it's useless
460 - fix default_headers (ie allow XFdrake to create xorg.conf from scratch again)
461 - keep the order from MonitorsDB file
462 (allows "Flat Panel 800x600" to be before "Flat Panel 1024x768")
463 (needs a nicely sorted MonitorsDB though)
464

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