Re: [Bug 1257372] Re: Xubuntu/Lubuntu daily image does not lead to a working desktop in a live session



I have a couple questions on this bug, and what package it is filed against.

I filed a bug on this for the PPC Live CD--https://bugs.launchpad.net/ bugs/1258303. It was marked as a duplicate of this bug--https:// bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-manual-tests/+bug/1257372.

I used the linked page below to determine what package to file the bug against:


On the above mentioned page, it says:

"When installing Ubuntu (or Derivatives)

If you encounter a bug when installing Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, or other derivatives, the bug is probably one of a small set of packages.

***If you encounter the bug when booting the Live CD (or alternative installer), file the bug against the kernel.*** If you encounter the bug when installing Ubuntu from the Desktop CD (most common method), the package is ubiquity. (See DebuggingUbiquity/ AttachingLogs.) If you encounter the bug when installing from the Alternate or Server CDs, the package is debian-installer."

I added the asterisks *** to highlight the area I thought was relevant.

With this information in mind, I ran "ubuntu-bug Linux" from a console and filed the bug against the kernel. Was that the wrong package to file it against? If so, what am I missing?

I'm trying to understand this so I don't make the same mistake in the future.

Best regards,

 Xubuntu/Lubuntu daily image does not lead to a working desktop in a
 live session

Status in Light Display Manager:
Status in Ubuntu Manual Tests:

Bug description:
 Running the latest (20131203) daily image does not produce a working
 desktop and stalls at the main Xubuntu splash/startup screen.
 Yesterday's image worked fine. For what it's worth today's Ubuntu
 64-bit image works fine on the hardware I have available.
