Bug Description

Binary package hint: xorg

After some fixes in kvm part and in boot loader for hardy-livecd i able to run it on my system, bat there is still some issue making live hard:
the latest hardy-desktop-i386.iso ( from 09.01.2008 ) can't properly configure video driver and x-pointer.
any knoppix or helix livecd can handle so it is hardy issue.

It's probably still trying to preseed the input protocol.

I've just tried to install alpha3 on kvm myself, and it does indeed fail. The failsafeDexconf -issues are fixed now in git, but the real problem is why it ended up there. It tries to use the cirrus driver, but it fails to configure itself properly. I used the xorg.conf from failsafeDexconf as a base, and it seems to require the modeline, defaultdepth and modes to actually start up. It needs to be fixed in the driver, unless I've misunderstood.
