Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: xubuntu-desktop
I installed ubuntu hardy beta (old HP P3 500MHZ, on 26-03-2008).
Performed updates and was pretty ok (except screen resolution setting
was not kept between boots however and actually autodetect was too high
it caused fragmentation of image).
Then I installed xubuntu-desktop and vlc.
X would refuse to load. Trying six times then giving the 2min warning
on some occassions, on other occassions, not leaving the loading/wait
mouse cursor icon.
=========== What I tried=============
I tried loading a Gutsy live CD and copied the xorg.conf from the live CD to replace the HD /etc/X11.
Still had X errors.
Hardy (bulletproofX?) overwrote the new xorg.conf so I recopied it and made it read only (chmod 444).
Still X errors.
Then I gave up fighting bulletproofX... (it's probably so bullet proof
it's hard to override).
Installed Xubuntu instead (do without the ubuntu-desktop)
At bare minimum: if xubuntu and ubuntu do handle the loading of X
settings in a way that conflicts, perhaps we would want to put a warning
on the xubuntu-desktop and the ubuntu-desktop descriptions in the
