Thanks Sam,

If you provide all the information about casper, I got the answer, there is no document about howto configure casper.

I'll read the code, thanks any way.

Thanks Sam.

I'm sorry, customization is better than control-:)

Ah, so I hope latter links are helpful then. Enjoy Ubuntu.

Hi Sam,

I have a ati radoen hd3870, and try to use fglrx driver in casper.
I put blacklist radoen in initrd's /etc/modprobe.d/ and put fglrx.ko to initrd's /lib/modules/2.6.32-24-generic/updates/dkms
and create /root/etc/X11/xorg.conf in initrd/scripts/casper-bottom/20xconfig.

Do you have any suggestions about the best opportunity to set the long alternatives of fglrx?

Or show me the right place to discuss it.

There is no update-alternatives in casper, should I set this link manually in casper?
or use jockey-text -C when the rootfs system is booting up.

An Yang (euroford) said : #8

or may I just use chroot /root sudo update-alternatives in initrd/scripts/casper-bottom/20xconfig?

An Yang (euroford) said : #9

Yes chroot works!

Now, I can run ubuntu with fglrx driver in USB disk.
