-DO NOT MERGE THE FOLLOWING REVISIONS ONTO branches/4.3.0/sid:
-Miscellaneous cosmetic fixes.
- 1473, 1484, 1485, 1502
-Re-run debconf-updatepo to get templates.pot and po files in sync with
-debconf template changes in 4.3.0.dfsg.1-3.
- 1475, 1501
-Update Greek debconf template translations (thanks, Konstantinos
-Margaritis). (Closes: #251509)
-Grab updates to XKB data from XFree86 CVS, mostly from 2003-05, with a
-couple of later updates (none later than 2003-12-18). Remove supserseded
-portion of patch #013. Adjust offsets in patch #084. Update MANIFEST
-files and ship new chicony, ibm/thinkpad, and omnibook XKB geometry files.
-Merge Josh Triplett's clean-room reimplementation of post-#187 changes to XTerm
-in XFree86 CVS. Upgrade XTerm to #190. Check for changes pulled from XFree86
-CVS and deal with them appropriately. Resync patch #907.
- 1482, 1500
-Update Czech debconf template translations (thanks, Mirsoslav Kure).
-Attempt to mitigate serious DRI performance problems on Rage 128 chips by
-retrying CCE idle commands until the timeout is reached (thanks, Daniel
-Jacobowitz!). (Closes: #223089)
-Grab missing part of updated XVideo (Xv) server-side implementation from
-XFree86 CVS as of 2003-04-30. Update module loader to export the new
-symbols xf86XVCopyYUV12ToPacked and xf86XVCopyPacked to drivers. Thanks
-to Michel Dänzer for diagnosing the problem. (Closes: #251307)
-Add -s, --stdout option to dexconf, and document this new option in its
-manpage. This option instructs dexconf to write the generated
-configuration file to standard output.
-Modify xvfb-run to create a temporary directory (respecting $TMPDIR) in
-addition to temporary file for the X authority file; this way we do not
-have to worry about whether xauth(1x) manages the authority file in a
-secure fashion. Also, if the user specifies an authority file to use, do
-not create it or remove it. Document these changes in behavior in
-xvfb-run's manual page.
-Modify Xsession to always append to the error file, closing a temporary
-file race condition window if it has to fall back to using tempfile(1) to
-create an X session error file. Because it always appends now, log the
-fact that the session has started, the username, and the date to the X
-session error file once it is successfully opened. Document this change
-in behavior in Xsession(5).
-Update Xsession(5) manpage to document the file specifications of the X
-session "scriptlets" that are shipped by default. Make other cosmetic and
-Reduce susceptibility of tempfile(1)-using maintainer scripts to temporary
-file race conditions by only appending to temporary files created by
-tempfile, instead of recreating them with the shell redirection operator.
-Make xserver-xfree86 postinst script use new --stdout option of dexconf,
-and increase versioned dependency of xserver-xfree86 on xserver-common
-accordingly. (Thanks to Andrew Suffield for pointing out this problem.)
-Fix XFree86 X server's PCI bus support code to be able to cope with both
-Linux 2.4 and Linux 2.6 styles of organization for /proc/bus/pci, checking
-for the 2.6 style first (thanks, Daniel Seyffer and Ciaran McCreesh).
-Modify xserver-xfree86's config script to be more paranoid and mistrustful
-of Discover. Store standard error from checking for the installed version
-of Discover instead of discarding it, and if this fails, report Discover's
-error output to the user and trap the failure instead of permitting it to
-break us. (Thanks to Kevin B. McCarty for identifying the cause of these
-mysterious failures; see #251690 and #252348. Thanks also to the libcurl2
-maintainer for the reminder that "The issue isn't whether you're
-paranoid...The issue is whether you're paranoid *enough*." [Max Peltier])
-Expand patch #104 to prevent 64-bit addressing modes from being used when
-they should not be on UltraSPARC Linux.
-Enhance xserver-xfree86's config script to be able to handle the new
-output format of lspci, which reports the PCI domain information as well.
-Retain support for the older lspci format, and if the output format isn't
-recognized at all, issue a warning and do not set a default answer for the
-BusID debconf question. (Closes: #251568)
-Update xserver-xfree86's config script and debconf templates file to
-support "1280x1024 @ 60Hz" in the list of modes the user can select to
-configure the monitor characteristics using the "medium method".
-Fix and enhance Bus ID validation code in xserver-xfree86's config script
-to recognize all bus types and corresponding ID formats supported by
-XFree86 (ISA, PCI, SBUS). Update template descriptions accordingly.
-Add "bug" script for xlibmesa-dri package to attempt to automatically
-gather useful information when people report problems with DRI/3D
-acceleration. Ship this script in the xlibmesa-dri package where
-reportbug will find it. Thanks to Michel Dänzer for his suggestions.
-Fix bug in sessreg such that it assumes hostnames in utmp entries are
-unique in the last four characters. Rectify this problem by hashing the
-entire hostname field from the utmp entry, so that we can tell unlike
-hostnames apart with much greater reliability. There is still a
-possiblility of one hash collision in 2^32. Apply patch by Maximiliano
-Curia and Damián Viano, using a public-domain hash algorithm by Bob
-Jenkins. Thanks also to Margarita Manterola for helping to steer this
-ship into port. (Closes: #229785)
-Fix problem with numbers and symbols being un-typable in the Lithuanian
-keymap (patch by Mantas Kriaučiūnas via Vytautas Lukenskas).
-Fix a few problems with the U.K. Macintosh keyboard layout:
-+ Map <TLDE> key to "section, plusminus".
-+ Map <LSGT> key to "quoteleft, asciitilde".
-+ Map AltGr+<AE02> to "EuroSign".
-+ Include group(switch) symbols so that the already-defined mapping
- of AltGr+<AE03) to "numbersign" can be used.
-Implement XkbOption "compose:caps" (make the Caps Lock key a compose key,
-a.k.a. Multi_key), courtesy of Andrew Suffield. (Closes: #251310)
- 1525, 1526
-Update Catalan debconf template translations (thanks, Ivan Vilata i
-Balaguer). (Closes: #253484)
-=== DELETE ABOVE ENTRIES WHEN 4.3.0.dfsg.1-5 RELEASED, TAGGED, AND MERGED ===
Apply patch by David S. Miller via Ben Collins to add RENDER and X
Acceleration Architecture (XAA) support to the Sun FFB driver, and use FB
framebuffer layer instead of MFB and CFB. (Closes: #245246)
