Description Bill Pemberton 1999-10-05 01:28:51 UTC
When selecting packages, F1 doesn't show the package
information like previous installers.

I don't see it documented, so maybe this is a planned
removal of a feature, but I miss it....

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.

*** Bug 5989 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

When installing via FTP, I was unable to query packages for
descriptions to decide whether or not to install them by
pressing the F1 key. With previous versions, I was able to
do this.
