Tue Aug 29 12:00:00 2006 Hans de Goede 1.9.25-3
- FE6 Rebuild

Mon Jul 17 12:00:00 2006 Hans de Goede 1.9.25-2
- Don't have a different defaultcfg on i386 vs x86_64, having the same
defaultcfg makes paralel installs possible, add notes about certain settings
being only valid on i386 to the defaultcfg and patch the config file parser
to ignore i386 only configfile settings on non i386.

Sat Jul 15 12:00:00 2006 Hans de Goede 1.9.25-1
- New upstream release 1.9.25
- Drop ancient Provides: libvga

Mon Feb 13 11:00:00 2006 Hans de Goede 1.9.24-2
- Bump release and rebuild for new gcc4.1 and glibc.
- add %{?dist} for consistency with my other packages

Thu Jan 5 11:00:00 2006 Hans de Goede 1.9.24-1
- New upstream version, drop merged patches.

Tue Aug 16 12:00:00 2005 Hans de Goede 1.9.21-5
- Merge with upstream, drop merged patches, fix dark vga modes on radeon.

Sun Aug 7 12:00:00 2005 Hans de Goede 1.9.21-4
- Add patch 9 which fixes 320x200x256(mode 5) on atleast radeons and probably
others too.

Fri Aug 5 12:00:00 2005 Hans de Goede 1.9.21-3
- Add patch 8 to try to fix compilation on ppc.
- PPC has issues with the use of iopl ioperm inb and outb
functions, upstream has svgalib working on PPC afaik?
- Disabling PPC builds for now, will look into this together with upstream.

Wed Aug 3 12:00:00 2005 Hans de Goede 1.9.21-2
- I've been working with upstream to get most patches intergrated, so
most patches are gone now.
- Reviewed and fixed the entire source tree for 64 bit cleanness.
- While working with upstream I've been busy fixing some bugs and improving
security in nohelper mode. From now on /dev/mem gets closed immediatly
after getchipset (vga_init) has been called. Lots of work has been done
to keep all functionality and api & abi compatibility intact, even
while /dev/mem is no longer available. This does however mean that
in nohelper mode runinbackground and emulated paging (ppc or secondary card)
are only available on 2.6 kernels now.
- Made nohelper mode configurable from the configfile, if the user wants he
can build the kernel module from the svgalib-srcs and use this with the RPM
packaged libs, all this has not been released by upstream yet. The merged
part of all this is in patch 0, patch 4 and 5 contain work which still needs
to be merged.
- Patch6: set some sane default in the configfile.
- Patch7: remove options not available on non-i386 from the configfile when
building for non-i386.

Fri Jul 1 12:00:00 2005 Hans de Goede 1.9.21-1
- Yet another attempt at getting svgalib into Fedora Extras (formerly .us).
- Upstream has reintroduced suid root use in 1.9.20 as an alternative to the
helper-kernel-module. This allows us to build a sane (kernel module free)
package of the 1.9 (devel) versions. The 1.4 (stable) versions haven't
seen an update in ages and don't support most modern cards -> Update to the
latest upstream devel release 1.9.21 .
- Split the Debian patches in some sane parts, redo against 1.9.21 where
- Don't patch Makefile.cfg instead just pass the nescesarry options to make
in %build and %install.
- Reintroduce %_smp_mflags, this seems to work fine with 1.9.21 .

Tue Jul 27 12:00:00 2004 Hans de Goede
- Removed unnescesarry and wrong Requires(%post,%postun)
- Fixed ExclusiveArch
- Removed the Packager tag
- Removed %_smp_mflags, this doesn't work
- Modified patch2 so that only the real manpages and not the
patch backups get gzipped and installed, renamed patch
to svgalib-1.4.3-man to reflect this change.
- Removed 0-INSTALL from docs


- Don't use README.* this also puts patch backups in the docs
- Moved README.patches from svgalib to svgalib-devel
- Removed unnescesarry creation of dirs in %install, the Makefile creates
most for us.
- Removed %preun removing /etc/vga/fontdate and /etc/vga/textregs,
instead made them owned by svgalib using %ghost
- Made files in /etc/vga %config(noreplace)

Fri Jul 16 12:00:00 2004 Hans de Goede
