Description Sebastian Vahl 2007-03-22 13:35:11 EDT
Description of problem: A livecd has integrated /etc/sysconfig/desktop with 
the content "DESKTOP=KDE". When installing this livecd to 
harddisk, /etc/sysconfig/desktop is empty after the reboot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
anaconda-11.2.0.39-1


How reproducible: Ever

Additional info: /etc/sysconfig/desktop is integrated into the squashfs.img 
and not created during /etc/init.d/livecd. If you boot into another partition 
after the reboot and mount the partition the file is also empty. So it is not 
erased by firstboot.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-03-22 20:54:42 EDT
Fixed in CVS by not writing out /etc/sysconfig/desktop unless there's an
explicit value it should be set to (which means someone set it via kickstart).

Finally I was able to test this with anaconda-11.2.0.44-1. It works now. Thanks
for fixing this.
