Kyle Dassoff <firstname.lastname@example.org> (11/02/2011): > The Xwrapper.config file is not generated by the debconf from > x11-common, even after manually running dpkg-reconfigure. Two issues here: - first installation (say: debootstrap sid + install x11-common) doesn't create the file. - reconfiguring doesn't, for the same reason. Unfortunately, fixing the actual bug (i.e. writing to a temporary file only, when the config file is missing, without copying it back) fixes both issues, but the following scenario would lead to no config file: - install with a version <= 1:7.6+2 → no config file - upgrade to >> 1:7.6+2 → config file doesn't exist. Upgrade is detected → no config file. (But now, dpkg-reconfigure x11-common would do the job.) I'm wondering whether we shouldn't be considering creating/updating the file in all cases. The downside being users couldn't then get rid of that file entirely if they wish to do so. Or should we consider adding a test, checking whether we're upgrading from a version of 1:7.6+2 or below, and considering file creation in that case? Julien, thoughts? KiBi.
