drakx-kbd-mouse-x11 0.94
1 Version 0.94 - 20 April 2011
2
3 - disable debug output of display_driver_helper by default
4 - fix ahead-of-X-server loading of proprietary and fglrx kernel modules
5 - try unloading unconfigured drivers in "display_driver_helper --check-loaded"
6
7 Version 0.93 - 17 April 2011
8
9 - add display_driver_helper script (used by XFdrake, udev, drakx, dkms)
10 - add/remove nokmsboot boot option as needed
11 - ask for reboot instead of X server restart, as it is commonly needed
12
13 Version 0.92 - 10 April 2011
14
15 - fix runned program in Keyboard.pm (#750)
16
17 Version 0.91 - 30 March 2011
18
19 - evdev needs to be loaded before calling getInputDevices_and_usb
20 else it will lead to a crash (pterjan)
21 - use UseEdid instead of IgnoreEDID with nvidia96xx since the latter is
22 obsolete (#40006)
23 - remove "3D hardware acceleration" from the UI, it will always be enabled
24 by default since we unconditionnally add the "dri" module to xorg.conf now
25 (#58933)
26
27 Version 0.90 - 26 May 2010
28
29 - translation updates
30
31 Version 0.89 - 11 May 2010
32
33 - mouse:
34 o remove imwheel support
35
36 Version 0.88 - 25 February 2010
37
38 - rename wacom driver package to its current name
39 - remove obsoleted video drivers from video driver list, add some new ones
40
41 Version 0.87 - 9 February 2010
42
43 - XFdrake:
44 o use -X option for ldconfig when switching alternatives, we only need the
45 cache rebuilt (Anssi Hannula)
46 o do not disable Composite extension by default when using fglrx driver
47 (Anssi Hannula)
48 o do not disable loading of dri module for non-glx drivers, as KMS drivers
49 require it as well
50 o do not disable loading of glx module for fbdev, in order to allow AIGLX
51 to work in software rasterizer mode
52 o do not add dbe and extmod modules to xorg.conf anymore, they are loaded
53 by default anyway
54
55 Version 0.86 - 26 November 2009
56
57 - keyboarddrake:
58 o make sure to properly init the console keymap before dumping it during
59 initial configuration, should fix console keymap setting in finish-install
60
61 Version 0.85 - 22 October 2009
62
63 - mousedrake:
64 o fix input module path on 64 bit machines
65 o don't install input drivers if X isn't here
66 - XFdrake:
67 o enable ctrl+alt+backspace by default
68
69 Version 0.84 - 9 October 2009
70
71 - run ldconfig after update-alternatives during installer too
72 (psb alternative does not have a higher priority than standard
73 alternative, and ldconfig was run by the installer only before
74 manually setting the alternative, which was not enough)
75
76 Version 0.83 - 8 October 2009
77
78 - use 28.8kHz as lower HorizSync (for 800x480)
79
80 Version 0.82 - 23 September 2009
81
82 - don't consider xorg.conf files with no InputDevice sections as invalid, fixes bug reported on cooker mailing list
83
84 Version 0.81 - 23 September 2009
85
86 - add psb driver support (for Poulsbo chipset)
87
88 Version 0.80 - 22 September 2009
89
90 - XFdrake:
91 o don't write sections in xorg.conf for USB wacom tablets, Synaptics
92 touchpads, mouses using "evdev" or "mouse" and keyboards
93
94 Version 0.79 - 14 September 2009
95
96 - XFdrake:
97 o fix DontZap option issue with old xorg.conf files
98 - allow to skip framebuffer setup (and thus splash removal) for newer
99 harddrake releases
100
101 Version 0.78 - 9 September 2009
102
103 - XFdrake:
104 o added "Disable Ctrl-Alt-Backspace" option
105
106 Version 0.77 - 22 July 2009
107
108 - XFdrake:
109 o correctly detect proprietary drivers that are located in
110 /usr/lib/drivername/xorg (#52384)
111
112 Version 0.76 - 25 June 2009
113
114 - keyboarddrake:
115 o update the xkb HAL keys when the keyboard layout is changed so that it
116 persists after a X server restart. Bug #49725
117 - XFdrake:
118 o when probing for video cards, ignore cards which are not in the VIDEO_VGA
119 PCI class (it is pretty common for dual-head ATI cards to have a
120 VIDEO_OTHER device for example). This has the potential of breaking
121 dual head setups, so it needs careful testing in Cooker ;) See bug #48028
122 o fix crash when both monitor and driver can not be probed (in
123 harddrake service or XFdrake --auto), for example with some Quanta
124 IL1 netbooks using Chrome9 IC3
125
126 Version 0.74 - 22 April 2009
127
128 - mousedrake:
129 o fix vmmouse configuration for vmware (#49654)
130
131 Version 0.73 - 21 April 2009
132
133 - tweak Intel driver accel methods in xorg.conf so that it's more consistent
134 with what the new Intel driver expects.
135
136 Version 0.72 - 15 April 2009
137
138 - XFdrake:
139 o fix selecting proprietary drivers with xdriver=DRIVER boot option
140 o do not add Load "freetype" to xorg.conf as the module does not exist
141 anymore
142 o use Plug'n'Play monitor when in vbox and don't specify any default
143 resolution, fixes #49642
144
145 Version 0.71 - 2 April 2009
146
147 - XFdrake:
148 o add support for xdriver=DRIVER kernel boot option that affects
149 non-interactive device autodetection, e.g. One boot
150 (special value xdriver=free disables proprietary drivers)
151 o add nouveau driver into the driver list
152
153 Version 0.70 - 20 March 2009
154
155 - mousedrake:
156 o configure input driver as 'vmmouse' if running in vmware (#29106)
157 o test if the file is there before trying to install the packages, that saves
158 a rpm -q in harddrake service after adding/removing/changing a mouse
159 - XFdrake:
160 o adapt for recent changes in proprietary driver alternatives
161
162 Version 0.69 - 29 January 2009
163
164 - XFdrake:
165 o use option -noAutoAddDevices when testing X
166 (useful during installation, #47237)
167
168 Version 0.68 - 28 January 2009
169
170 - keyboarddrake:
171 o bug fix: overwrite previous /etc/sysconfig/keyboard Xkb information when
172 changing keyboard
173
174 Version 0.67 - 8 January 2009
175
176 - mousedrake:
177 o synaptics driver in now in package x11-driver-input-synaptics (#45531)
178
179 Version 0.66 - 18 December 2008
180
181 - keyboarddrake:
182 o do not configure hal directly, but write in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard Xkb
183 information so hal can get them
184 o new option "--migrate" which adds Xkb information in
185 /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
186 o correctly handle default XkbModel
187 (so that we do not force pc105 when we should not)
188
189 Version 0.65 - 8 December 2008
190
191 - keyboarddrake:
192 o configure hal so Xorg can get xkb info
193 (nb: for now, you must "service haldaemon restart" to be taken into account)
194 - XFdrake:
195 o generic flat planel must allow "800x480 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 29.82 kHz"
196 so "HorizSync 31.5-90" is too strict, generating "HorizSync 29.5-90"
197 o have Option "PanelGeometry" "XXxYY" on geode driver
198 o do not display the weird ratios 128/75, 85/48 (for 1024x600 and 1360x768)
199 o do not load "Type1" module by default (disabled in xserver-1.5.x)
200 o special hack for gdium: the "default monitor" is "Plug'n Play" instead of
201 good_default_monitor() (it will work since the resolution is passed to the
202 kernel on gdium)
203 o there is no reason "automatic" resolution should imply "automatic" color
204 depth
205 - mousedrake, XFdrake:
206 o do not use /dev/mouse symlink (in xorg.conf)
207 - mousedrake
208 o do not propose to test the chosen mice
209 (it doesn't handle evdev/synaptics and so is quite obsolete nowadays)
210
211 Version 0.64 - 1 October 2008
212
213 - XFdrake:
214 o explicitly Load or Disable module "dri"
215 (to be independent of Xorg's default choice)
216
217 Version 0.63 - 30 September 2008
218
219 - translations updates
220
221 Version 0.62 - 25 September 2008
222
223 - XFdrake:
224 o set "PreferredMode" in Monitor section if the user changes the resolution
225 (we still do not use PreferredMode for the default resolution)
226

228
229 - keyboarddrake:
230 o fix lithuanian keyboard choices (cf #41031)

242
243 - XFdrake:
244 o use 24dpp by default, even on DRI (needed for kde4)
245 o ensure we don't drop non-main "Device" (when modifying "Options", #41410)
246 o use nvidia-current default settings for nvidia173 as well
247 o no need to force XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps, it is the default now in
248 x11-server
249
250 Version 0.58 - 9 June 2008
251
252 - XFdrake:
253 o Composite is now the default in xserver 1.4 (#35043)
254 o do not create symlink /etc/X11/X to ../../usr/bin/Xorg (#41363)

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

303
304 Version 0.50 - 11 March 2008
305
306 - XFdrake:
307 o if the EDID gives a valid 16/10 preferred resolution (even if duplicated),

392
393 Version 0.36 - 4 October 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

418 let Xorg do things automatically) instead of good_default_monitor.
419 (requires monitor-edid 1.12)
420 - fix typo in 0.30: do not use "Automatic" resolution by default in --auto
421
422 Version 0.31 - 25 September 2007, by Thierry Vignaud

462 - do not configure XFS, it's useless
463 - fix default_headers (ie allow XFdrake to create xorg.conf from scratch again)
464 - keep the order from MonitorsDB file
465 (allows "Flat Panel 800x600" to be before "Flat Panel 1024x768")
466 (needs a nicely sorted MonitorsDB though)
467

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