Bug Description

Binary package hint: debconf

After installing http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-mid/daily-live/current/jaunty-mid-lpia.img on Intel SCH based system, X fails to start. Removing Option UseFBdev True from etc/X11/xorg.conf fixes issue.

Values in /var/cache/debconf/config.dat

xserver-xorg/config/device/bus_id is blank
xserver-xorg/config/device/use_fbdev is true

  * debian/xserver-xorg.postinst.in: Set USE_FBDEV to false by default on lpia
    as well (just like on i386, amd64 etc.); should fix vesa usage on Poulsbo
    systems, it would work fine in the live session but not after install;
