Description Christoph Wickert 2011-10-31 19:58:26 EDT
Description of problem:
openbox gets installed on the Xfce spin because it provides "firstboot(windowmanager)" which is needed by firstboot. Two problems here:
1. For Xfce this should be provided by xfwm4. The provides already was in the package and worked fine, but I accidentally removed it during the upgrade to 4.7.4.
2. If this is not provided by any package, a random one gets pulled in. On the spin this currently is metacity, others reported openbox (see bug 750380 comment 5)
