Description Chris Pepper 2007-12-15 23:20:07 EST
Description of problem:
In the individual package selection windows, the lists of packages has 2 columns per package: one for 
the checkbox and another for the package name. The package name is what gets selected when you 
click a package, but it doesn't *do* anything. When using the keyboard to (un-)check packages, I have 
to either click on the smaller checkbox target, or use the arrow key to move to the modifiable column.

It would be more convenient to make each package a single unified item, so I could click a name, then 
hit space to (de-)select.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run anaconda.
2. Enter individual package selection.
3. Click a package name.
4. Hit space.
Actual results:
Nothing happens.

Expected results:
After clicking a package name, space should (un-)check.

Comment 1 James Antill 2013-03-12 15:59:49 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Engineering for inclusion in a Red 
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.

Red Hat does not currently plan to provide this change in a Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux update release for currently deployed products.

With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in 
response to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a 
conservative approach when evaluating enhancements for inclusion in 
maintenance updates for currently deployed products. The primary 
objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware platform 
support and to resolve critical defects.
