Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 494087
funny characters in curses keyboard selection windows
Last modified: 2009-05-04 10:26:53 EDT
Description of problem:
When first starting an install, before it switches to GUI mode, there
are a couple of curses style screens to use to select keyboard layout
They both have lists with scrollbars. The top of the scrollbar shows up
on my system as a lower case e with a circumflex accent, and the bottom
shows up as a lower case n with a cedilla accent.
I could swear these used to be up and down triangle symbols :-).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 Beta DVD iso
Steps to Reproduce:
up and down arrows
They did used to be arrow characters, but various changes to the way the loader is built has broken this. I don't see it as something we're going to get around to any time soon but I guess it's good to be aware of it.
