Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 230604
Install to hard drive unusable at 800x600
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:58 EST
Description of problem:
When selecting "Install to Hard Drive" from the LiveCD, anaconda's window is
displayed, but the buttons are below the screen and cannot be selected. The
anaconda window cannot be resized, and it cannot be dragged up to expose the
windows. In addition, anaconda does not respond to clicking in the close box
window control, so it appears hung (it must be manually killed from a root
window). Same problem in FC7Test2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot LiveCD FC7Test2 on a system with 800x600 display
2.Select menu Applications->System->Install to Hard Drive
Unable to install, unable to close window.
Either anaconda's window should be resizable (so you can scroll around), or it
should resize itself to the current resolution. Anaconda should respond to
clicking in the window close box by terminating.
I thought that I had this filed already, but maybe it was just on the list on my
whiteboard. Anyway, on my todo list to get to in the near-ish future.

Moving to 'devel' as discussed on

Resolution 640 x 480 also suffers the same fate.
This will be better with test3, although there are now a couple of UI elements
that flow off the screen. I'll get them fixed up in the next little bit, though.
