What is should look like, shorter network description vbox
Attached picture of what it should look like.
OK, so looks like this is from pci.ids . While this description is pretty absurd, we probably should put vendor and model on two separate lines.
For now, I'll just trim the description to fit in the box provided. The vendor and model are all part of the same string as far as anaconda knows, so that work will have to be done in a different component.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
