Refractasnapshot issue with proprietary video drivers

Hi,

If the base system uses proprietary video drivers (eg nvidia) and the target system uses open video drivers, then the target will boot, but have only a console and no working graphic terminal.

A possible workaround is to edit in exclude script
(/usr/lib/refractasnapshot/snapshot_exclude.list)

to add:
  /etc/X11/xorg.conf
  /etc/modules.d/blacklist

This still may not boot the target so
1) revert the base system to open video drivers
2) rebuild grub: # update-grub2
3) move /etc/X11/xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak

rerun refractasnapshot

thanks for a great tool!
