I am developing a console-only debian-based rescue cd loosly based on thfixed spelling.e live-system's rescue cd.

One of the things I need for my livecd is to be able to run firefox for some testing, and I want ot run it using xvfb.

The command I have been using to run it on my regular debian system is:

$ xvfb-run firefox &

But on my livecd, after running this command it exits almost immediately and I don't see xvfb running when I do:

$ ps -ef | grep -i 'xvfb"

Are there some special packages I need to include on my livecd other than gtk2.0-0, atk1.0-0 and xvfb?
