Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 124493
installer text mode automatic partitioning menu scrollbar
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:02 EST
Description of problem:
In installer text mode, the "Automatic Partitioning" menu appears to
have a poor scrollbar placement. In the case where only one choice of
drive to be used for installation, the "#" scrollbar thumb appears
directly below the last highlighted space in the "hda" field. No
portion of the scrollbar itself is visible.
Also, no cursor is visible to make the current focus position clear.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
boot install CD using "linux text" mode installation on system with 1
hard drive available for installation. Follow the install procedure
to the "Automatic Partitioning" menu.
The hard drive selection scrollbar should be off to the right of the
hard drive list so the "#" thumb appears to the right, not below the
list. Also, maybe some portion of the scrollbar should be evident so
as not to look like a "#" appears on the menu for no reason.
This is the way that newt scrollbars work. Text-mode toolkits are
inherently more limited than graphical and this is just one of many
reasons why we highly recommend the graphical installer.
