Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-23 16:05:30 EDT
This is true in the text mode and graphical mode install?
Comment 5 Hans de Goede 2000-10-23 16:53:44 EDT
Ehm lowmemory = auto textmode afaik. This is a long time ago so I'm not sure but
its easy to reproduce.
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2000-12-04 15:13:32 EST
Right...if machine doesn't has low memory, text mode is forced.
Comment 7 Brent Fox 2000-12-04 15:21:01 EST
Fixed in CVS.  I replaced the label on the "No" button to "Back" so that the
label more clearly represents what the button does.
Comment 8 Hans de Goede 2000-12-05 03:33:41 EST
Ok, that clears things up, but what is the use of showing that dialog when goign
back anyway, the user can't change anything their.

IMHO the yes / no was corrected and the dialog should be skipped when goping

This is a pop-up dialog, not a screen with user input like the others and it is
a special case.

Then again just adding back makes sense too, and doesn't introduce a whole new
set of bugs.


Could you take a look at bug 14553 please, it is somewhat related, and has been
closed as to hard to fix :(

using qa1211.0 test tree, the dialog box is NOT changed:

yes, no are the only choices at the screen ...
Comment 10 Brent Fox 2001-01-02 16:05:08 EST
Fixed in cvs now.  Brock, please test again.
Comment 11 Brock Organ 2001-01-09 14:22:43 EST
