Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 182706
Display during text based install mangled
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:25 EST
Description of problem:
When doing a text based install the display is messed up. It looks like the
highlighting is placed in the wrong places making it very hard to see which
text is selected. This caused me to give up on the text install as I didn't
want to end up reformatting the wrong partitions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I tried text based installs three times and had the same problem each time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a text based install using 'linux text'
The screens had red, white black boxes in spots that made no sense. I suspect
they were intended to surround text to indicate which option was selected, but
it wasn't easy to tell with things out of position.
Nice readable text within hilighted boxes.
I have a radeon 9200. The monitor didn't identify itself. This was a DVD install.
Is this with test3 or post test3 devel tree? Any chance of getting a picture?
This was with the FC5T3 release. I got a copy via bittorrent and the sha1sum
of the file was correct. I am testing reading the DVD now, as it was suggested
that the cause of my graphical install problems may be a bad DVD.
If the DVD checks out as OK, or if I still have the problem after making sure
I still have the problem with a good DVD, I will try to take a picture of a
couple of the screens and upload them to the bugzilla entry.
The DVD was bad, so I need to retest again after I have a good one. I'll report
back either way, but it won't be until late tonight.

The problem persists after burning a good DVD.
I am including a picture of the first page that is messed up. Pages before this
(e.g. the media check page) looked fine.
