0.95
1 Version 0.95 - 23 April 2011
2
3 - harddrake: configure default resolution (and background) even if card
4 configuration fails (useful if vbox video driver is not available)
5
6 Version 0.94 - 20 April 2011
7
8 - disable debug output of display_driver_helper by default
9 - fix ahead-of-X-server loading of proprietary and fglrx kernel modules
10 - try unloading unconfigured drivers in "display_driver_helper --check-loaded"
11
12 Version 0.93 - 17 April 2011
13
14 - add display_driver_helper script (used by XFdrake, udev, drakx, dkms)
15 - add/remove nokmsboot boot option as needed
16 - ask for reboot instead of X server restart, as it is commonly needed
17
18 Version 0.92 - 10 April 2011
19
20 - fix runned program in Keyboard.pm (#750)
21
22 Version 0.91 - 30 March 2011
23
24 - evdev needs to be loaded before calling getInputDevices_and_usb
25 else it will lead to a crash (pterjan)
26 - use UseEdid instead of IgnoreEDID with nvidia96xx since the latter is
27 obsolete (#40006)
28 - remove "3D hardware acceleration" from the UI, it will always be enabled
29 by default since we unconditionnally add the "dri" module to xorg.conf now
30 (#58933)
31
32 Version 0.90 - 26 May 2010
33
34 - translation updates
35
36 Version 0.89 - 11 May 2010
37
38 - mouse:
39 o remove imwheel support
40
41 Version 0.88 - 25 February 2010
42
43 - rename wacom driver package to its current name
44 - remove obsoleted video drivers from video driver list, add some new ones
45
46 Version 0.87 - 9 February 2010
47
48 - XFdrake:
49 o use -X option for ldconfig when switching alternatives, we only need the
50 cache rebuilt (Anssi Hannula)
51 o do not disable Composite extension by default when using fglrx driver
52 (Anssi Hannula)
53 o do not disable loading of dri module for non-glx drivers, as KMS drivers
54 require it as well
55 o do not disable loading of glx module for fbdev, in order to allow AIGLX
56 to work in software rasterizer mode
57 o do not add dbe and extmod modules to xorg.conf anymore, they are loaded
58 by default anyway
59
60 Version 0.86 - 26 November 2009
61
62 - keyboarddrake:
63 o make sure to properly init the console keymap before dumping it during
64 initial configuration, should fix console keymap setting in finish-install
65
66 Version 0.85 - 22 October 2009
67
68 - mousedrake:
69 o fix input module path on 64 bit machines
70 o don't install input drivers if X isn't here
71 - XFdrake:
72 o enable ctrl+alt+backspace by default
73
74 Version 0.84 - 9 October 2009
75
76 - run ldconfig after update-alternatives during installer too
77 (psb alternative does not have a higher priority than standard
78 alternative, and ldconfig was run by the installer only before
79 manually setting the alternative, which was not enough)
80
81 Version 0.83 - 8 October 2009
82
83 - use 28.8kHz as lower HorizSync (for 800x480)
84
85 Version 0.82 - 23 September 2009
86
87 - don't consider xorg.conf files with no InputDevice sections as invalid, fixes bug reported on cooker mailing list
88
89 Version 0.81 - 23 September 2009
90
91 - add psb driver support (for Poulsbo chipset)
92
93 Version 0.80 - 22 September 2009
94
95 - XFdrake:
96 o don't write sections in xorg.conf for USB wacom tablets, Synaptics
97 touchpads, mouses using "evdev" or "mouse" and keyboards
98
99 Version 0.79 - 14 September 2009
100
101 - XFdrake:
102 o fix DontZap option issue with old xorg.conf files
103 - allow to skip framebuffer setup (and thus splash removal) for newer
104 harddrake releases
105
106 Version 0.78 - 9 September 2009
107
108 - XFdrake:
109 o added "Disable Ctrl-Alt-Backspace" option
110
111 Version 0.77 - 22 July 2009
112
113 - XFdrake:
114 o correctly detect proprietary drivers that are located in
115 /usr/lib/drivername/xorg (#52384)
116
117 Version 0.76 - 25 June 2009
118
119 - keyboarddrake:
120 o update the xkb HAL keys when the keyboard layout is changed so that it
121 persists after a X server restart. Bug #49725
122 - XFdrake:
123 o when probing for video cards, ignore cards which are not in the VIDEO_VGA
124 PCI class (it is pretty common for dual-head ATI cards to have a
125 VIDEO_OTHER device for example). This has the potential of breaking
126 dual head setups, so it needs careful testing in Cooker ;) See bug #48028
127 o fix crash when both monitor and driver can not be probed (in
128 harddrake service or XFdrake --auto), for example with some Quanta
129 IL1 netbooks using Chrome9 IC3
130
131 Version 0.74 - 22 April 2009
132
133 - mousedrake:
134 o fix vmmouse configuration for vmware (#49654)
135
136 Version 0.73 - 21 April 2009
137
138 - tweak Intel driver accel methods in xorg.conf so that it's more consistent
139 with what the new Intel driver expects.
140
141 Version 0.72 - 15 April 2009
142
143 - XFdrake:
144 o fix selecting proprietary drivers with xdriver=DRIVER boot option
145 o do not add Load "freetype" to xorg.conf as the module does not exist
146 anymore
147 o use Plug'n'Play monitor when in vbox and don't specify any default
148 resolution, fixes #49642
149
150 Version 0.71 - 2 April 2009
151
152 - XFdrake:
153 o add support for xdriver=DRIVER kernel boot option that affects
154 non-interactive device autodetection, e.g. One boot
155 (special value xdriver=free disables proprietary drivers)
156 o add nouveau driver into the driver list
157
158 Version 0.70 - 20 March 2009
159
160 - mousedrake:
161 o configure input driver as 'vmmouse' if running in vmware (#29106)
162 o test if the file is there before trying to install the packages, that saves
163 a rpm -q in harddrake service after adding/removing/changing a mouse
164 - XFdrake:
165 o adapt for recent changes in proprietary driver alternatives
166
167 Version 0.69 - 29 January 2009
168
169 - XFdrake:
170 o use option -noAutoAddDevices when testing X
171 (useful during installation, #47237)
172
173 Version 0.68 - 28 January 2009
174
175 - keyboarddrake:
176 o bug fix: overwrite previous /etc/sysconfig/keyboard Xkb information when
177 changing keyboard
178
179 Version 0.67 - 8 January 2009
180
181 - mousedrake:
182 o synaptics driver in now in package x11-driver-input-synaptics (#45531)
183
184 Version 0.66 - 18 December 2008
185
186 - keyboarddrake:
187 o do not configure hal directly, but write in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard Xkb
188 information so hal can get them
189 o new option "--migrate" which adds Xkb information in
190 /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
191 o correctly handle default XkbModel
192 (so that we do not force pc105 when we should not)
193
194 Version 0.65 - 8 December 2008
195
196 - keyboarddrake:
197 o configure hal so Xorg can get xkb info
198 (nb: for now, you must "service haldaemon restart" to be taken into account)
199 - XFdrake:
200 o generic flat planel must allow "800x480 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 29.82 kHz"
201 so "HorizSync 31.5-90" is too strict, generating "HorizSync 29.5-90"
202 o have Option "PanelGeometry" "XXxYY" on geode driver
203 o do not display the weird ratios 128/75, 85/48 (for 1024x600 and 1360x768)
204 o do not load "Type1" module by default (disabled in xserver-1.5.x)
205 o special hack for gdium: the "default monitor" is "Plug'n Play" instead of
206 good_default_monitor() (it will work since the resolution is passed to the
207 kernel on gdium)
208 o there is no reason "automatic" resolution should imply "automatic" color
209 depth
210 - mousedrake, XFdrake:
211 o do not use /dev/mouse symlink (in xorg.conf)
212 - mousedrake
213 o do not propose to test the chosen mice
214 (it doesn't handle evdev/synaptics and so is quite obsolete nowadays)
215
216 Version 0.64 - 1 October 2008
217
218 - XFdrake:
219 o explicitly Load or Disable module "dri"
220 (to be independent of Xorg's default choice)
221
222 Version 0.63 - 30 September 2008
223
224 - translations updates
225
226 Version 0.62 - 25 September 2008
227
228 - XFdrake:
229 o set "PreferredMode" in Monitor section if the user changes the resolution
230 (we still do not use PreferredMode for the default resolution)

233
234 - keyboarddrake:
235 o fix lithuanian keyboard choices (cf #41031)

247
248 - XFdrake:
249 o use 24dpp by default, even on DRI (needed for kde4)
250 o ensure we don't drop non-main "Device" (when modifying "Options", #41410)
251 o use nvidia-current default settings for nvidia173 as well
252 o no need to force XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps, it is the default now in
253 x11-server
254
255 Version 0.58 - 9 June 2008
256
257 - XFdrake:
258 o Composite is now the default in xserver 1.4 (#35043)

304 o "ro" really is "ro(std_cedilla)"
305 (to be more standard on unpatched xkeyboard-config)
306 o "ro(us)" is wrong and not qwerty, use "ro(winkeys)" which is the only
307 qwertz from symbols/ro
308
309 Version 0.50 - 11 March 2008
310
311 - XFdrake:
312 o if the EDID gives a valid 16/10 preferred resolution (even if duplicated),
313 but no HorizSync/VertRefresh, use a generic flat panel
314 HorizSync/VertRefresh (needed for edid.lcd.dell-inspiron-6400, #37971)

354
355 Version 0.42 - 22 January 2008

397
398 Version 0.36 - 4 October 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
399

421 - monitor-probe-using-X can now return EDIDs. if Xorg find an EDID (whereas
422 monitor-get-edid-using-vbe failed), defaults to "Plug'n Play" monitor (ie
423 let Xorg do things automatically) instead of good_default_monitor.
424 (requires monitor-edid 1.12)
425 - fix typo in 0.30: do not use "Automatic" resolution by default in --auto
426
427 Version 0.31 - 25 September 2007, by Thierry Vignaud

447
448 Version 0.27 - 19 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

467 - do not configure XFS, it's useless
468 - fix default_headers (ie allow XFdrake to create xorg.conf from scratch again)
469 - keep the order from MonitorsDB file
470 (allows "Flat Panel 800x600" to be before "Flat Panel 1024x768")
471 (needs a nicely sorted MonitorsDB though)
472

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