Description of problem:
At boot: of the installer, the on-screen labels for the Fn function
keys should not be red, green, or blue. These "1-gun" colors are not
robust in the face of flaky CRTs or LCDs, where an intermittent on one
of the R, G, or B channels is a common failure mode. [And blue is
also bad because it has very low contrast with a black background.]
Instead, use a "2-gun" color such as cyan, magenta, or yellow; or the
"3-gun" color white.
(The red channel on my CRT _is_ intermittent, and the labels did not
appear at all! [The rest of the screen did not look too bad.] Yes,
it's a problem with my hardware, but the installer could be more robust.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from CD-ROM of FC3-re-0908.0-i386-disc1-ftp.iso
2. examine screen at boot: prompt.
Actual Results: On-screen labels for Fn function keys are in red (or
invisible, if the red channel is intermittent.)
Expected Results: On-screen labels for Fn function keys are in cyan,
magenta, yellow, or white (some color that is not "1-gun").
Unfortunately, we only have a total of 14 colors to work with at this
point and to have any semblance of reasonable graphics, most of those
get used up leaving us little to work with here. :(
