Description of problem:
The version number (FC4T1) should be shown somewhere prominent during the install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
FC5 Target? "Show version number in install", i.e. not just "Fedora Core", but
"Fedora Core 5"
The thing that's difficult is that we don't even set this sort of information
until the tree is done. eg, we don't say that something is test1 until after
it's been blessed as such by being through testing. Similarly, RC builds become
So it's not entirely obvious that we can really do this in a reasonable fashion :/
Can't /etc/fedora-release be displayed prominently instead? Or maybe a graphical
tagline be generated from it?
This is a fairly easy feature which would be welcomed by sysadmins of RHEL clusters.
Ack. Ignore my last comment.
Will Fedora Core 6 have the ability to show "Fedora Core 6" more prominantly
during the install?
We aren't about to show the Fedora version number mainly because that's not
well-defined anywhere except at the project level. What we have added is more
prominent version information for anaconda. We show the anaconda version when
stage 2 loads and in the exception report window.
