I have the exact problem building ArtistX (Sid repositories). What
should happen using the LH_DEBIAN_INSTALLER=live option? Should we see a
Install button on the desktop?
Following my last mail I verified that a clean build (only added to a
gnome-core base iceweasel and icedove) won't boot into X except under
Vmware, VirtualBox or other virtualization software.
On physical computers I get an artistx at artistx prompt and only a startx
or sudo gdm will start Gnome.
Any other experiencing this? I will try on Testing today and let you
know if this is Sid-related.
