Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:10 EST
Description of problem:
When doing an OS install using the DSA (Dell Server Assistant) disc, if type a
lower case J, I, L, P, F, B, O, R, W, M or T for the 3rd or 4th character, it
will not display it properly. This happens with any of the input fields
(except for the product ID field) on the "enter OS information" page of DSA.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The DSA Installation program runs on a Linux Kernel using RedHat Enterprise
Linux3 Kernel and xorg-6.8.1package for XServer.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot system using DSA disc
2.choose any OS to install
3.type lower case J, I, L, P, F, B, O, R, W, M or T in the input fields
If type a lower case T, F, P, B, O or J it will cut off part of the
character;lower case W, R and M are shaved on the right side; lower case I and
L will not appear unless followed by an additional character or a space.
Characters are shown correctly
