Summary: Distributed Multi-head X server
Xdmx is a proxy X server that uses one or more other X servers
as its display devices. It provides multi-head X functionality
for displays that might be located on different machines.
Xdmx functions as a front-end X server that acts as a proxy
to a set of back-end X servers. All of the visible rendering is
passed to the back-end X servers. Clients connect to the Xdmx
front-end, and everything appears as it would in a regular
multi-head configuration. If Xinerama is enabled (e.g.,
with +xinerama on the command line), the clients see a single large screen.

Xdmx communicates to the back-end X servers using the standard X11 protocol,
and standard and/or commonly available X server extensions.

  - remake pcpa's patch to avoid an infinite list, simply taking first matching mode
* Sun Sep 30 2007 Paulo Andrade <>
  + Revision: 93811
  - Remake Pixel's patch to avoid an infinite loop, but instead of trying to handle
    duplicate modes, just use the first on the list.
    This fix several problems in intel based cards, and doesn't require any changes
    to xorg.conf, and allow using the PreferredMode option, that is an alternative
    to Patch54: xserver-1.3.0-randr12-config-hack.patch. But this change should make
    it possible to keep using Patch54 without any problems.
* Wed Sep 26 2007 Pixel <>
  + Revision: 92850
  - add patch from Fedora that ensures backward compatibility with previous Xorg
    behaviour: prefered mode is the first Modes in Subsection "Display"
  - fix deadloop occurring if preferred resolution matches more than one mode

  + Revision: 91573
  - fix parsing weird EDID (fixes intel driver defaulting to smallest resolution) (#31183)
  - take into account screen width when looking for prefered resolution instead of
    only using screen height (helps choosing 1024x768 instead of the weird 1152x768)
    + Paulo Andrade <>
      - Don't compile unoptmized and with debug code by default.
      - Possible fix for bugzilla #31183, that should not interfere, and work with
        other drivers that may have the same problem
* Tue Sep 18 2007 Paulo Andrade <>
  + Revision: 89337
  - Fix last patch that broke build. Use underline character to replace space in
    string of build operating system and fix double quotes.
  - Better description in /var/log/Xorg.X.log than:
    Build Operating System: UNKNOWN
  - Until Xorg Bugzilla #12414 receives any response, this patch fixes the problem
    with a hack that tries to make sure CreatePixmap is allways properly wrapped,
    i.e. all extensions know about it.
  - Fix what appears to be a serious off by one bug. After this patch opengl apps
    works under Xnest (but very slowly), so it should also fix the bug of remote GL
    apps crashing the Xserver (Bugzilla #27397). It is clearly poorly checked code,
    as it was even checking if an unsigned variable is greater than or equal to 0.
  - Modify XOrgCfg resources file to only require fixed fonts.
    For the moment still requiring x11-data-bitmaps, but those can be removed if it
    is undesirable to install that package also.
  - Add requires to xorgcfg so that missing bitmaps and/or fonts should
    not cause problems.
  - Fixes bug #31211 by not starting/enabling MouseKeys support (neither showing the
    dialog with help screen). Maybe a better fix would be to still show the help
    screen, but instead of enabling it, tell the user how to enable/disable (i.e.
    pressing Shift+Num_Lock).
    + Ademar de Souza Reis Jr <>
      - add security fix for CVE-2007-4730 (xorg-git-CVE-2007-4730.patch)
        Closes: #33479
      - remove 0033-dont-backfill-bg-none patch, which is incompatible with the
        fix for CVE-2007-4730 (there's no history for this patch, but odds are
        it's a workaround for the very same problem fixed as a security problem.
        Anyway, the code in question was reviewed and tested as part of the
        security audit, so our guess is that our old patch is unecessary).

  - proper cleanup/fix for handling of the legacy X11R6 directory.
    There are scenarios where both /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 and
    /usr/lib/X11 exist. Since the legacy files/dirs were owned by an
    ancient version of the filesystem package, we don't need a
    trigger, all we need is a %post with the necessary changes and a
    conflict. Fix: #23423 and #31737
* Tue Jul 03 2007 Ademar de Souza Reis Jr <>

    The main highlight is the RandR 1.2 support (that was being experimentally
    used in the x11-server13 package).

  - (minor) remove old source
  - fix default font path (nb: /usr/share/fonts is not valid, /usr/share/fonts/misc is)
* Sun Aug 06 2006 Helio Chissini de Castro <> 1.1.1-4mdv2007.0
  + Revision: 52766
  - Directories are comma separated
  - Fixed correct new font path. Before the change, server was tied to one
    specific hardcoded directory %_libdir/X11/fonts, but fonts are located on /usr/lib/X11/fonts
    so that's explain why fixing XFS for x86_64 isn't work for all X applications.
    Now the standard font dir is /usr/share/fonts, but X will look for old paths
    too, for legacy reasons, including the non 64 versionated lib/X11.
