Description slickgardner 1999-07-26 14:13:11 EDT
I'm not sure if this is a sparc specific or not.

The 6.0 install on a sparc does not (apparently) have the
old blue background with ASCII character dialog boxes and
such, it now has a plain screen with dialogs made like:
+--------+
| Dialog |
+--------+

All of the new/changed parts of the install look fine, but
some parts still have the old blue backround and dialogs.
They include:
Mouse setup
Timezone setup
And one other step near the end that i can't for the life
of me remember.

Nothing big, just very inconsistant.

What type of sparc are you using??  We have not seen this problem in
the test lab.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-26 14:38:59 EDT
The parts that you mention as 'old' are the parts that are run
as external programs. Perhaps the install didn't detect the
terminal type right - are you running in a serial console?
Comment 3 slickgardner 1999-07-27 12:57:59 EDT
I am running from a serial console, and the following show up with
the old scheme:
Config Mouse
Timezone
Services
Authentication

I can repro it 100%, both on a hardware terminal and using minicom
from the console or in an xterm.

This will happen on serial console installations.
