Description Alan Cox 2004-09-29 01:51:12 UTC
If I tap 'a' at the hit key for menu option I end up straight in
editing. Worse if it hit newline as is the common key to use it enters
the menu selects a kernel and boots it.

Grub should be clearing the keypresses

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2004-09-30 01:34:51 UTC
Or as a first step could the text at the top at least be changed
with s/any key/Space/.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-30 20:40:16 UTC
Fixed in -3.

Comment 3 Alan Cox 2004-10-16 00:38:51 UTC
Still says "any key" after updating to rawhide, still has the problem

Comment 4 Alan Cox 2004-12-03 17:44:20 UTC
Still hosed in FC3 final

Comment 5 Peter Jones 2004-12-15 23:17:20 UTC
I can't replicate this with 0.95-3 or newer.  In what way is it still hosed on
FC3 final?

Comment 6 Alan Cox 2006-05-15 16:54:39 UTC
