Comment 1 Christoph Wickert 2009-01-05 10:21:20 EST
Sorry Frank, I don't really understand what you are talking about. You are complaining that
1. the machine won't go into runlevel 5 after installation by default
2. firstboot is not run after installation
3. SLiM is not started automatically
4. LXDE does not start without configuring /etc/sysconfig/desktop previously.

Did I understand that correctly?

All these will be fixed in the LXDE-Spin I'm working on [1], but there is not much I can do in lxde-common because the package does not own the relevant files:
1. needs to be fixed in anaconda, because anaconda writes the inittab.
2. caused by 1.
3. needs to be fixed in initscripts, because they own etc/X11/prefdm.
4. LXDE should not be made default, but it should be detected and run automatically. Editing /etc/X11/xinit is strictly forbidden because everybody will get LXDE then. Your edit also prevents /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients from being executed.

The proper way is to add /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients.d/Xclients.lxde.sh as described in bug #142260. Also affects Xfce and _all_ other desktops/window-managers except of Gnome and KDE, because ATM none use /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients.d/.

You pretty much got it covered.
Look forward to the spin.

Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2009-01-05 13:50:49 EST
Ok then. I will add /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients.d/Xclients.lxde.sh in the next release of lxde-common.

I will also ask for support of SLiM in the initscripts and eventually in anaconda. I'm going to cc you to the bugs I open. Thanks a lot for your comments so far.

Ok, all outstanding bugs are fixed and I've just made SLiM default in comps, so this should not happen any longer.
