Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 206785
Umlauts are locking backspace key in TUI dialog window
Last modified: 2010-03-08 04:02:54 EST
Description of problem:
When typing a umlaut e.g. a "ö" in the directory field at the http setup TUI
dialog window, backspace key will be locked. Workaround is to click on "Back"
to get a usable http setup TUI dialog window during repeating the step.
The selected language setting was English with a German keyboard. As this is a
common setting in Germany, this has to work, because "äöü" is near the "Enter"
key and it's likely that umlauts are pressed by mistake.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime, see above.
Umlauts are locking backspace key in TUI dialog window.
No locking, normal use of backspace key to delete the umlaut.
What's the current status? Do we get this fixed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5?
This bug report is fixed for Fedora 7 (as per bug #206697), but is it also
fixed for RHEL5?
This bug is a newt issue.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
AFAIK this bug report already succeeded this flag internally. Please check the
related case for that...
We are sorry for not addressing this issue in RHEL-4. As newt is not scheduled
for an update in RHEL-4.9, I'm closing this bugzilla as WONTFIX. If you are
still experiencing this issue with RHEL-5, please reopen it against RHEL-5.
