Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 107607
Incorrect cursor placement in listbox
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:58:36 EDT
Description of problem:
When a listbox is displayed, the cursor is placed one line below and one character to the right of where it ought to be.
I am blind and use a braille terminal. It is convenient to use the cursor position rather than guessing from video attributes. This bug makes the listboxes in anaconda show the selected item to be the one below the item actually selected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot RHL install CD or floppy
2. Proceed until the question about installation language.
Cursor is placed on the letter R of "French"
Cursor should be on the letter E of "English"
Additional info: When the bottom choice is selected, cursor goes to blank line below. Affects some text-based config progs, "loader" on installer boot images and stage2.

This patch fixes it for me
In listbox.c:listboxDraw(), make the two calls to newtGotorc consistent.
the above patch is in the current CVS (inherited from another patch)
