Description Sergey Belyashov 2008-04-05 19:01:27 UTC
I try run this live DVD (livedvd-i686-installer-2008.0_beta1.iso) under VirtualBox 1.5.6. It correctly shows Video Card name, but X do not starts. Then I check /etc/X11/xorg.conf and in section Device field Driver contain only "". I rerun, but no changes. Next I manually change driver to "vesa" and restart /etc/init.d/xdm. As result GUI successfully loaded.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup Virtual Machine under VirtualBox
2. Boot from livedvd-i686-installer-2008.0_beta1.iso

Can you post the results of "/sbin/lspci" from the CD?

Comment 2 Sergey Belyashov 2008-04-06 18:33:12 UTC
May be good idea set vesa as default driver (when driver not defined use vesa)?

Well, I set fbdev as the default, since it works on all arches, versus vesa which only works on amd64/x86.

Does anyone want to work on this or should we close it as WONTFIX / CANTFIX?

mkxf86config is not even used on the livedvd since X can pretty much work with a blank xorg.conf and automagicaly detects most of the drivers and loads the proper modules. Keep in mind this is with x86,x86_64 not the other arches but I suspect it would be the same.

Seems no one is interested in the package.
