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.
