Description Adam Williamson 2022-11-08 21:03:13 UTC
This is a downstream report of https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/-/issues/2499 , for blocker tracking purposes. As described there, mutter 43.1 (landing in Fedora-Rawhide-20221105.n.0) seems to have broken the display of Help screens in anaconda on the traditional installer images, where anaconda runs on gnome-kiosk on X.org. Live images, where anaconda runs on GNOME Shell or KWin on Wayland, seem unaffected.

Proposing as an F38 Final blocker as a violation of Final criterion "Any element in the installer interface(s) which is clearly intended to display 'help' text must do so correctly when activated."

Comment 1 Adam Williamson 2023-01-11 00:46:05 UTC
This seems to have been fixed between Fedora-Rawhide-20221115.n.0 and Fedora-Rawhide-20221119.n.0 , looking at past openQA results.
