FC5 Target? "Show version number in install", i.e. not just "Fedora Core", but
"Fedora Core 5"
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2005-10-14 15:58:23 EDT
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
the final.

So it's not entirely obvious that we can really do this in a reasonable fashion :/
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2005-10-16 06:57:18 EDT
Can't /etc/fedora-release be displayed prominently instead? Or maybe a graphical
tagline be generated from it?
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2006-08-21 10:21:55 EDT
This is a fairly easy feature which would be welcomed by sysadmins of RHEL clusters.
Comment 6 Need Real Name 2006-08-21 10:22:44 EDT
Ack. Ignore my last comment.

Will Fedora Core 6 have the ability to show "Fedora Core 6" more prominantly
during the install?
Comment 7 David Cantrell 2007-08-23 15:22:54 EDT
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.
