3rd bug:
	local is not set after the installation:
	select french, the good keyboard is automaticaly selected, idem for local
	but when redhat fisher start for the first time, the $LANG is not set to

We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-02-09 04:36:52 EST
Ok, here's the rundown.  It would be nicer if these issues were separate bugs,
but here goes:
1) We've seen numerous problems with ATI Mach64 cards.  We're looking into this
problem.  Try typing 'linux vga=788' at the boot prompt.  Also try the 'nofb'
and 'lowres' options.  Does the behavior change at all?
2) The num lock isn't a bug.  If you hold down the numbers on the keypad, it
will move the pointer around the screen.  This is for people that don't have
mice, but need a pointer to navigate the screen.
3)I'll look into the French locale...don't know about that at the moment.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-02-15 18:00:37 EST
The issue with the Mach64 has been resolved.  Testing X no longer hangs the machine.
Comment 4 angus young 2001-02-18 07:52:58 EST
tested rawhide from 20010206
the ati mach64 issue is already there.
if i can give you some info.

i don't understand the numlock issue in graphical install, why not offer tab key
for people that don't have mice to navigate?
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2001-02-19 10:52:00 EST
I don't understand what you mean by 'the ati mach64 issue is already there'.  Do
you mean that it is fixed?
Comment 6 angus young 2001-02-19 18:17:25 EST
sorry for my poor english, i'm french...

no the problem is not fixed for me in rawhide.
i could not achieve a graphical installation with my machine running an ATI
Mach64, but i could in text installation of course.
i speak about the last rawhide 20010206.
Comment 7 Brent Fox 2001-02-20 15:07:02 EST
Mach 64's work fine for us here now.  The only thing I can think of is that what
got pushed to Rawhide might have been compiled a few days before it actually got
pushed out, so maybe that's why you didn't see the fix.  Other than that, Mach
64's seem to work now.
