Description Alan Cox 2004-09-28 21:51:12 EDT
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 2004-09-29 21:34:51 EDT
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 16:40:16 EDT
Fixed in -3.
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2004-10-15 20:38:51 EDT
Still says "any key" after updating to rawhide, still has the problem
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2004-12-03 12:44:20 EST
Still hosed in FC3 final
Comment 5 Peter Jones 2004-12-15 18:17:20 EST
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 12:54:39 EDT
