Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 425809
When choosing individual packages, anaconda uses a 2-column internal representation
Last modified: 2013-03-12 16:00:37 EDT
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run anaconda.
2. Enter individual package selection.
3. Click a package name.
4. Hit space.
After clicking a package name, space should (un-)check.
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.
