Description of problem:
When the installer loads the Select Packages screen, the display
becomes corrupted. It looks like the screen is not updated in the
right places. Pressing Back or Next does not fix the problem. Must
manually power off to abort the install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use graphical install on a Dell Inspiron 2500
2. Select packages screen is corrupted.
Actual Results: Corrupted display halfway through install.
Expected Results: No display corruption.
How does the display get "corrupted"?
The screen right before Select Packages remains on the screen. After
the Select Packages screen is "loaded", it looks no different (i.e.,
previous screen still there). If you then move the mouse, it updates
some things like the check boxes and the "Details" buttons. If you
move the scroll bar, then the window scrolls, but not in the place it
is supposed to (about half a screen up or down from where it should
scroll). It's like the information is being sent to the wrong location
on the display. Eventually, the screen looks like somebody randomly
cut up the screen and shuffled it around.
