    Product     : Fedora Core 4
    Name        : xorg-x11
    Version     : 6.8.2                      
    Release     : 37.FC4.45                  
    Summary     : The basic fonts, programs and docs for an X workstation.
    Description :
    X.org X11 is an open source implementation of the X Window System.  It
    provides the basic low level functionality which full fledged
    graphical user interfaces (GUIs) such as GNOME and KDE are designed
    upon.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Update Information:
    
    This new release of xorg-x11 provides a number of bug
    fixes to the previous release, including:
    
    - Fix for the infamous "libvgahw" bug, which was caused
      by a gcc compiler bug.  Many users were affected by this
      issue, exhibiting symptoms such as X server crash or
      corrupted display during OS installation or during X
      server startup after performing a text mode install.
      Green or blue border/banding on screen for mga and
      some other hardware.  A variety of video hardware that
      was affected by this issue should now work.  Some users
      may still experience problems with similar sounding
      symptoms after this update, and should query bugzilla
      to find out if the particular issue is already
      reported in a separate bug, or file a new report
      if they still experience problems.
    
    - A problem with the Dutch keyboard layout has been
      resolved.
    
    - The open source "nv" driver for Nvidia hardware has been
      updated to the latest version.  Additionally, a
      workaround has been added to the driver to disable known
      unstable acceleration primitives on some GeForce
      6200/6600/6800 models.
    
    - Several bugs have been fixed in the Xnest X server.
    
    - DRI is now enabled by default on all ATI Radeon hardware
      except for the Radeon 7000/Radeon VE chipsets, which
      is known to be unstable for many users currently when
      DRI is enabled.  Radeon 7000 users can re-enable DRI
      if desired by using Option "DRI" in the device
      section of the config file, with the understanding that
      we consider it unstable currently.
    
    - The config space handling code in the X server has been
      updated to avoid PCI config space contention issues
      between the X server and the kernel.  This resolves a
      number of bugs that have been reported to us concerning
      transient system lockups during OS startup on certain
      systems containing certain specific hardware
      combinations.
    
    Fedora Core 4 users are encouraged to update to this new
    release, and report any regressions in bugzilla.

     Kristian Høgsberg  6.8.2-45
    
    * Fri Jul 29 2005 Kristian Høgsberg  6.8.2-45
    - Disable xorg-x11-6.8.2-libvgahw-workaround-rh161242.patch and
      rebuild with gcc-4.0.1-4 which has a workaround for the gcc
      over-optimization bug.
    
    * Wed Jul 27 2005 Kristian Høgsberg  6.8.2-44
    - Update xorg-x11-6.8.2-use-linux-native-pciscan-by-default.patch to
      fix all occurrences of direct PCI config space access.  Fixes from
      Olivier Baudron, comment 28 in #163331.
    
    * Thu Jul 14 2005 Mike A. Harris 
    - Fix FC5 spec file typo for virtual libGL Requires in -devel subpackage
    
    * Tue Jul 12 2005 Mike A. Harris  6.8.2-43
    - Added xorg-x11-6.8.2-xnest-update-modifier-state-fdo3030-fdo3664.patch and
      xorg-x11-6.8.2-xnest-fix-warning-spew-fdo3513.patch to fix Xnest bugs
      referenced in bug (#162246)
    - Updated xorg-x11-6.8.2-redhat-nv-disable-s2scopy-on-geforce-6x00.patch to
      add a log file message about ScreenToScreenCopy being disabled on some
      GeForce models for bug (#157715)
    - Added xorg-x11-6.8.2-libvgahw-workaround-rh161242.patch to attempt to work
      around bug (#161242, 162274, 153729, 159106, 160500, 161047, 160470,
      160453, 160307, 160777, 151688, 154502, 161566, 160950, 160580, 157556,
      161756, 160477, 155416, 160287, 162567, 157593, fdo#2991, fdo#2976,

    - Added xorg-x11-6.8.2-redhat-nv-disable-s2scopy-on-geforce-6x00.patch to
      work around "nv" driver bug, by disabling ScreenToScreenCopy on certain
      GeForce 6200/6800/6800 cards which the problem has been reported on,
      until there is a real upstream fix, as the current CVS head driver we
      now have, still suffers from the problem.  We may also need to blacklist
      other cards as new reports come in.  (#157715)
    
    * Mon Jul  4 2005 Mike A. Harris  6.8.2-41
