Subject: live-config: xorg-resolution option does not work
Date: Mon, 14 Mar 2011 22:52:55 +0200
Package: live-config
Version: 2.0.15-1
Severity: normal

xorg-resolution option does not change the resolution of screen. 

Đ¢his may occur due to a typo in the file /lib/live/config/117-xserver-xorg :

66:     if [ -n "${LIVE_XORG_RESOLUTION}" ]
67:     then
68:             echo "xrandr -s ${LIVE_XORG_RESOLUTION} || /bin/true" >> /root/etc/X11/Xsession.d/21xvidemode
69:     else
70:             rm -f /etc/X11/Xsession.d/21xvidemode
71:     fi

in line 68  path should be /etc/X11/Xsession.d/21xvidemode like 
in line 70  rather than  /root/etc/X11/Xsession.d/21xvidemode

Passing xorg-resolution=640x480 had no affect.

Many thanks,
