Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 47146
GUI installer not full-screen - needs background
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:25 EDT
Description of Problem:
Installing on a Compaq Armada M700 laptop with a 1024x768 LCD display.
Anaconda is only using what appears to be 800x600 of the screen, leaving
the plan grey X background visible around the edges.
Installer should either force 800x600 mode, or install in 1024x768
We only support 640x480 and 800x600 due to some of the graphical elements (like
the border at the top) which are dependent on the display size. We don't want to
package all possible sizes.
We can make the background more appealling to look at however.
I talked to the labs guys and they said that this is not easily possible from
within Python. They said the easiest way is to bundle xsetroot and then call it
Done in cvs.
