Description James Manning 2000-06-12 19:09:47 EDT
A large majority of the GUI installer can be done with just a keyboard now,
but in the occasion that getting rid of the help window could be helpful
(see bug 12171), it'd be nice if a key was bound to do so.

added to the feature request list ... thanks!
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-09-28 14:43:32 EDT
I have added an accelerator to open and close the help window (F10 to close, F11
to open), but it will not work in the case of the fdisk screen.  It seems that
the zvt program has the focus and will not give it up.  All of the keyboard
accelerators like F12 and <Tab> don't work in that screen either.  Basically, if
you don't have a mouse, then text mode is a much better installation method.
