Description Jens Petersen 2008-03-25 05:27:32 EDT
Description of problem: Live instances of Fedora get a xorg.conf generated (presumably by firstboot?). Now that we have a persistence option for Live images on USB it would be better not to create the xorg.conf file since the persistent image may be booted on a different machine with different graphics chipset, etc. Steps to Reproduce: 1. # livecd-tools-iso-to-disk --overlay-size-md 512 ... 2. boot live image on computer A 3. later use live image on computer B with different graphics hardware Actual results: 3. X doesn't start because wrong driver loaded. Expected results: 3. no xorg.conf file so that it starts on any computer Additional info: Workaround is to delete xorg,conf after 2.

firstboot doesn't do this, it's the livecd init script. And there's one or two things I need to double check with ajax this week before changing this
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-01 12:24:44 EDT
Changed this last week.
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2008-04-04 05:32:36 EDT
Now it runs system-config-display?
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-04 09:33:06 EDT
The firstboot initscript had changed its logic -- Chris fixed this yesterday after I finally figured out what was launching it.
