Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 463946
Text mode does not correctly display border characters
Last modified: 2008-10-10 09:44:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Border characters in the installer's text mode user interface are incorrect if installation method is specified directly as installer's option (i.e. method=***). Otherwise (e.g. when 'askmethod' installer option is passed), user interface is displayed correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installer in text mode with 'method=nfs:***', 'method=http:***' or 'method=ftp:***'.
2. Go to the stage2 'Would you like to use VNC?' page.
3. Select 'Use text mode'.
Broken interface is displayed.
Get correct interface.
I'm not sure this occurs with 'method=hd' or 'method=cdrom'.
I'll be happy to review any patches on this, but it's very unlikely this is going to get looked at any time soon.
