That's what I thought as well when I first saw the posting, but before
suggesting to drop the priority, I tried it myself. Even in low priority, the
package configuration never asks for screen resolution, color depth etc.
With low priority, here's the list of settings I get:
- video driver
- video card name
- bus name
- video memory
- use fb [y/N]
- autodetect kbd layout [y/N]
- kbd layout
- XKB rule
- kbd model
- kbd variant
- kbd options
- mouse protocol
- emulate 3rd button [y/N]
- list of modules to load
- write Files section [Y/n]
and that's it... Normally the screen settings were after mouse and before
module loading if i'm not mistaken. Unfortunately I don't have any
suggestions as to what might be wrong.
