Bug Description

The patch debian/patches/111_armel-drv-fallbacks.patch was created to be able to load the arm related xorg drivers and use fbdev as a fallback. This is needed at arm platforms as usually the drivers are platform devices, without an easy way to identify if the platform contains or not a supported hardware.

Currently this is lacking support for the pvr driver available at Pandaboard, so the only way to make it use the proprietary driver is by creating a xorg.file. As the change is quite simple, I'm making this as a bug.

Fix should follow as a merge proposal.

  [ Timo Aaltonen ]
  * New upstream release.

xorg-server (2:1.10.3-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Cyril Brulebois ]
  * New upstream release (with just a version bump).
  * Remove the Replaces: xdmx from xdmx-tools, that was before lenny.
  * Add a Breaks: libgl1-mesa-dri-no-multiarch, to handle upgrades from
    squeeze-backports (without multiarch) to wheezy (with multiarch).
  * Set urgency to “medium” to speed things up. Migration to testing is
    a prerequisite for squeeze backports.

  [ Julien Cristau ]
  * Merge packaging changes lost from the 1.7 (squeeze) branch:
    + Add Breaks on drivers abandoned between lenny and squeeze. This helps
      apt decide to remove them instead of removing all of X. Thanks, David
      Kalnischkies!
    + Set default xkb rules to evdev on linux, to work around a wrong default in
      configure.ac and an Xorg issue where it reverts to the default on reset.
      Thanks to Bastian Blank for the report.
