Bug Description

the command xflock4 should lock the screen - but actually it returns an error "command xlock not found". Haven't yet checked but hopefully xlock is a tiny thing with few dependencies, so we can add it OK...

xlock is provided by "xlockmore", 1.6 MB package, no deps. OK to add to CD lists?

summary: - please add xlock to package list
+ please add xlockmore to package list

doesn't make sense to me to have screen locking on the CD instead of something more useful for rt multimedia - imo it'd just be irritating if the screen of a liveCD locked while I made a cup of tea, especially with the auto-login thing meaning I might not know the default password to unlock it!

1.6MB is quite big (btw better to use size of archives than installed size due to the squashfs, not sure which you are using) and the CD is pretty full to the brim already. lots of space on the DVD though

it doesn't auto-lock the screen afaik, you would have to enable that.

anyway i agree with the rest, so i've added it to the dvd packageslist (bzr rev 318). (yes that was the installed size)
