Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 526158
font of f12 beta terminal is very big
Last modified: 2010-12-09 16:30:01 EST
Description of problem:
start f12 beta install on ppc, after anaconda started, press "Ctrl+Alt+F2" switch to terminal, input any command, the fond will become very large
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Yeah, I've seen this too. If you then switch around to various other terminals - especially those that already have lots of text on them - and then switch back, it seems to fix itself.
Is this specific to ppc ... and only when connecting to the physical VGA port on a IBM Power system?
As discussed during F12Beta blocker review meeting, this issue is specific to ppc64 and it was agreed a reasonable workaround exists. Removing this issue from the blocker bug and cc'ing Pavan, IBM PowerPc test contact, for additional guidance in resolving this issue post-beta.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 13 development cycle.
Changing version to '13'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
ppc is unsupported as of F-12 EOL...
