Subject: live-initramfs: the PATH environment variable is not standard
Date: Tue, 15 Jun 2010 01:31:50 +0200
Package: live-initramfs
Version: 1.236.2-1
Severity: normal

Hi,
the standart PATH environment variable should be:

$ echo $PATH 
/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games

In Debian live, /usr/local/bin and /usr/games are not present. In this
way, all games included into the CD image don't start by clicking on their icons.

Regards,
Carlo

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
At the moment I solved with a workaround, putting this modified file in 
config/chroot_local-includes/etc/skel.

Ciao!

Subject: Re: live-initramfs: the PATH environment variable is not standard
Date: Wed, 07 Jul 2010 20:07:06 +0200
Hi,

a live system with current live-boot (but it doesn't matter,
live-initramfs doesn't differ in that regard) has the following default
PATH:

  /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games

This default is correct as it is. Also, i can't see why any live systems
shouldn't have a /usr/games or /usr/local/bin directory, i always have
this on any system i've ever build.

Therefore, I think your bug is invalid and hence close it.

Furthermore, if you think above path is wrong, then you'll need to
discuss this with the bash maintainer (as the PATH is set in
/etc/profile), we don't configure stuff, we just put the unmodified
packages together to a bootable image.

Regards,
Daniel

If your image uses slim, you may be experiencing #581775.

nodm does it right, so that's not the issue then.
