Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 202284
Annaconda needs to inform installer about the bit version
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:40 EST
Description of problem:
When installing from CD/DVD the core5 version (32 bit or 64 bit) should be
mentioned. It will save frustration when doing a fresh install and
heartaches when doing an 32 bit upgrade with a 64 bit version, only to find that
there is a kernel panic....
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Use any DVD, including respins.
Steps to Reproduce:
An informative message indicating the bit version.
Small non-functional but informative bit of information. Would be nice to have
info in the release notes or on the first screen.
If Annaconda screen(s) had a different background color for the 32 bit, 64 bit,
and ppc, versions, the problem would be solved.
