I've built a secure openvpn livecd based off of dsl and I'm having a couple of little issues I'd like to clean up relating to X and jwm.
The first is related to jwm and that is I desire the openvpn startup script to run automatically. The way I tried to do what was to put it just after the <RootMenu> label. I expected it to just run when X came up. However the mouse has to be moved to get it to start (this is intermittent...sometimes a mouse move, sometimes a mouse click, sometimes it doesn't come up). So the question is what is the best way to get a script to run on X window start-up. If I put it in the .xinitrc then there are issues of backgrounding that end up having jwm not start...hmmm.
The second is a more generic issue in that. I don't have control over which machines the cd will be deployed to. In alpha testing we've discovered plenty of machines that do not autodetect the video correctly and dump the user either into no X, completely broken system, or into an 8-bit X where the remote system the user is being sent to can not be used properly...blah. Any advice on either problem is welcome.
