Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 438791
firstboot should not create xorg.conf for Live instances
Last modified: 2008-04-04 09:33:06 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
3. X doesn't start because wrong driver loaded.
3. no xorg.conf file so that it starts on any computer
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
Changed this last week.
Now it runs system-config-display?
The firstboot initscript had changed its logic -- Chris fixed this yesterday
after I finally figured out what was launching it.
