    Default Some issues detected

    I am just testing the SuSE studio service and it is really a great tool.

    During my tests, i encountered the following issues (bugs ?) :

    1 - When selecting icewm with autostart programs, the programs are never launched. The .icewm/xstartup file is created but never execute. It seems related to the fact that the .xinitrc file calls icewmbg instead of icewm-session

    2 - When using the configuration on my local host with KIWI, the bootsplash are never displayed : instead grub shows an error message and fallback to text. I have no clue on what happens here, as the custom theme and pictures are present in /etc/bootsplash and so on. Any idea ?

    Thanks and rgds, Sylvain.

    I've run into that myself as well - what I did to work around it was
    modify the .xinitrc file to run icewm-session, rename the file to another
    name, and then in the post-build script have it copy the
    modified .xinitrc file over the one generated by the build file.

    That seems to have worked fine for my uses.

    Don't know, what's the error message?

    1 - That's exactly what id did at the end ! Works perfectly now, even if not 100% satisfactory.

    2 - "gfxboot error" or something like that. I guess that something is missing in the config.xml file somewhere, i tried notably to add boot-theme parameter, but strictly no effect. I think this issue is easy to reproduce :
    - Create an appliance
    - customize its logo/background
    - Download the kiwi package
    - Rebuild it with KIWI and test it ...

    Good to hear. :-)

    It sounds like either the video mode isn't being set properly or the
    framebuffer device isn't being used for some reason. I don't know a lot
    about Kiwi myself, so hopefully someone else can jump in and suggest a
    course of action.
