Bug Description

'xauth info' command returns different values on Jaunty and Karmic:

Jaunty: /home/user_name/.Xauthority
Karmic: /var/run/gdm/auth-for-user_name-XXxxXX/database

So, UCK_USER_HOME_DIR is evaluated as '/var/run/gdm/auth-for-user_name-XXxxXX/database' instead of '/home/user_name' on Karmic and fails to continue (it's in remaster-live-cd.sh).

UCK 2.0.9, Ubuntu x86 Karmic Koala, latest alpha with all updates included.

description: updated

confirmed at beta level of 9.10. As workaround, did hardcoding in /usr/lib/uck/remaster-live-cd.sh as indicated above.

already fixed in svn days ago, 2.0.10 will be available soon

Changed in uck:
status: New → Invalid
