Description Mike McLean 2002-09-04 21:12:08 UTC
This was a CD install * Psyche-re0903.2 Not terribly bad, just very weird. In fact, you can backspace all the way up to and through the image, eating it away block by block. If you backspace past the prompt, any command you type gets nulled (e.g. "Could not find kernel image:" with nothing after it).

Is this on the syslinux/isolinux splash screen? I can't reproduce it on my test box here, so it could be a bios bug, although that seems weird
Comment 2 Mike McLean 2002-09-04 23:48:45 UTC
yes. Ok. When the prompt first appears, the bug does not manifest. Try viewing F[1-5] a few times first. You may also need to type a character or two on the line.
Comment 3 Mike McLean 2002-09-05 00:17:53 UTC
Ok, to make this bug appear, press F6, then try backspacing.
Comment 4 Mike McLean 2004-03-29 23:26:05 UTC
I believe this is fixed.
