Subject: live-helper: kdmrc in chroot_local-includes overwrites settings in /etc/default/kdm.d/
Date: Tue, 09 Mar 2010 13:12:01 +0100
Package: live-helper
Version: 2.0~a8-1
Severity: normal



If KDM settings are specified in chroot_local-includes/etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc they are used both in live environment and in the definitive (installed) one.
This, for example, prevents autologin in live, despite the /etc/default/kdm.d/ settings.

Hi,

this has nothing to do with live-helper, . if you use local includes, 
then they are included. no way we can parse and check the symantics. 
it's your own responsibility to write meaningful configuration files.

Regards,
Daniel
