Bug Description

install proceeded normally (manual partitioning) on reboot failed to start X session .. rebooted to grub selection screen chose rescue mode .. from the choices menu ran some checks then did updates install .. all of the xorg-server files were installed automaticly .. then selected the "boot resume " (not sure on wording) which then allowed normal login to proceed (lightdm) into xfce/xubuntu evironment..

seems the xorg packages were not installed initially .. this appears to be a recent "change" as earlier images did install these files normally.. early march?, but February and earlier for sure..

this is a older machine lenovo SL500 with Intel GM45 Express Chipset video ..

This machine runs dicso fine normally .. has been running disco since first CD install images were available .. daily updates from proposed .. but has only run xorg-server ..
not sure if chipset is wayland capable..

that's weird, the image build should've failed instead like it did for ubuntu

anyway, the image should be fine now after this
