Description Tom Marchant 2006-03-01 19:37:13 UTC
Description of problem: The new splash screen looks nice, but it is rather difficult to read at the bottom due to the white areas. The easiest way to see it is to get into command mode and type "help". I'm attaching a photo if the screen that illustrates the problem. Sorry for the poor quality. This could be corrected by setting a different color for the foreground, but none of the colors that I tried looked very good. I've done some experimenting using the color curves tool in The GIMP, and I'm sending a modified splash screen that I find much easier to read. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info:

Created attachment 125489 [details] modified splash screen This splash screen eliminates the white areas while keeping the image similat to the existing splash screen.

Created attachment 125490 [details] improved screen shot, much smaller Saved the JPEG photo using more compression while still showing the difficulty.

Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience. [This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]

Fedora 7 is much better. Please close.
