[Bug 1086036] Re: Compiz driven ubiquity-dm crashes when booting raring


After talking to didrocks and xnox today, psivaa and I were both able to
confirm that killing X and restarting lightdm brings up the proper
ubiquity-dm session and let's you pick whether to install or try ubuntu.

** Summary changed:

- Compiz crashes when booting to raring live session
+ Compiz driven ubiquity-dm crashes when booting raring

** Description changed:

- Booting to live session with amd64 and amd64+mac 20121203 images on a VM
- leads to a black blank screen. Booting i386 live session on a VM does
- not face this issue. On the hardware, raring-desktop-amd64.iso is not
- facing this issue either. I could not test the amd64+mac image on the
- hardware since booting to live session is facing some other issue that
- is blocking this.
+ Booting to live session with on a VM leads to a black blank screen with
+ just the top bar. The window to select whether to try ubuntu or install
+ it never comes up.  So far, this has only been reproducible in VMs, but
+ only a few pieces of hardware have been tried.  This seems to have
+ started around the time metacity was switched out for compiz.
- 1. Boot to the live sesion on a  vm with an amd64+mac or amd64 raring desktop iso 
- (I used Use Virtual Machine manager to create the vm)
+ 1. Boot to the live sesion on a  vm raring desktop iso
+ (This bug can be reproduced in both kvm as well as virtualbox)
  2. It can be seen that the screen is shown as the screenshot attached.
- 3. Attached is a compiz crash found in /var/crash
+ -- or --
+ 1. Press a key at the boot screen, and select "Install Ubuntu"
+ Attached is a compiz crash found in /var/crash which may or may not be related.
  ( Running ubuntu-bug on the crash failed to report the bug)
