[Solved] MX-Snapshot not excluding specific folder/files mentioned in exclusion list

#1 Post by pemartins » Fri Nov 30, 2018 4:30 pm

@Adrian all the details are in this thread viewtopic.php?f=104&t=47121 but basically my MX-Snapshot excluded list (at /etc/mx-snapshot-exclude.list) includes:

Code: Select all

# This stops any video drivers from loading - safe option.
etc/X11/xorg.conf
etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf
etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf
but nevertheless those bastards keep on showing up on my created isos and not letting me boot them in virtualbox (and probably in other machines not using the Radeon driver).

There are printscreens here viewtopic.php?f=104&t=47121&start=10#p469242

Thanks, I see:

Code: Select all

etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf
etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-amd.conf
etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/synaptics.conf
I think 10-evdev.conf and synaptics.conf are present on original ISO, so I probably need to exclude only 20-amd.conf

I updated the package, it should trickle down from the repos soon enough...

It's fixed. Updated, just created an iso, tested it on virtualbox and all went well, the file etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-amd.conf was indeed excluded.

Thank you very much!
