Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 15649
RFE: SPACE ignored in boot partition selection screen
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
At the boot partition selection ( default lilo label ) pressing SPACE has
no effect on the buttons (OK/EDIT/BACK).
I had selected the Slovenian language.
Hmm , the "installer" component is no more listed, so I can not select it.
Not in the "New bug" screen or in the bug screen either.
space isn't used as an accelerator.
Needs to be fixed after release - in screen freeze at moment.
Is this in text mode or GUI?
In text mode.
This seems to have been fixed earlier because I am unable to reproduce it. I
have fixed a couple of bugs with non-US keyboards and this could have
accidentally solved the problem. Brock, please double check me here and verify
that this has been fixed.
verified fix in qa0116.3 test tree ...
Bug still there in Florence beta2.
Note that I use Slovene language and keyboard.
Ok, this problem is not particular to the language selected. The problem is
that the space bar can't be used to select the buttons because the space bar is
used to select the default LILO image in the list. The help lines at the bottom
say that the space bar is used for this and it's too late to change it at this time.
