Bug is resolved, but I modified my fix a bit.  When you select the custom layout
option, the checkbox is forced to true and is greyed out so the user cannot
modify it.  If you then choose another partitioning method, the box is ungreyed
but still left as true.

Instead of that, I have the previous state of the checkbox restored after you
leave the custom layout selection.

David, I tested with FC5T2. The storage of the box state, before checking and
disabling, and restore work as you indicated, and is just that bit nicer than I
was suggesting.
I also notice that the checkboxes throughout anaconda are fading in/out: sort of
cool if you like that sort of thing. Confirmed resolved.
Comment 3 David Cantrell 2006-01-23 11:17:20 EST
Thanks for the followup.  The fading checkboxes are not something I particularly
like because it's difficult to see on older monitors.  It's a GTK+ (or PyGTK, or
Python, or X, or any of a group of things) thing, not something in anaconda.

Thanks again.
