[Stratus 5.5 bug] UI appears locked (network configuration)
Last modified: 2013-07-04 08:46:46 EDT
Description of problem:
It is far too easy to end up with an invisible Network Configuration window _behind_ the full-screen firstboot window. When this happens the UI seems to be locked up locked up.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. IPL from CDs
2. Click [Change Network Configuration] from firstboot's network configuration page
3. Click [Forward] on network configuration page
The firstboot full-screen window is displayed, but mouse is ineffective. UI appears locked up.
<alt-tab> will bring the Network configuration window back to the surface.
User must close the Network Configuration using the window frame's [X] button before clicking [Forward]
- Clicking [Next] confirms and commits any outstanding network configuration changes
- the Network Configuration window acts as a modal window and remains on the surface until explicitly closed (a commit button would make interaction more intuitive).
Not a regression, symptom also observed with RHEL5.3
<alt-tab> brings the Network Configuration window back to the surface.
rich - this has been formally proposed for RHEL 5.5.
fixed in version 184.108.40.206
