release notes of rhel55 in VNC session
Description of problem:
If I look at release notes during anaconda installation of rhel55 (in VNC session) there are many strange signs, bad encoding?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always, I take a look only to ia64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start kickstart rhel55
2. click to "Release Notes"
3. see many strange signs - there is screenshot in attachment.
it seems that all 'code text with commands examples' are not shown
no strange signs
The offending parts on the screenshot are places where we list kickstart code or commands. Those are the <pre> and <span>/<strong> html tags. Could it be that the widget used in anaconda is not able to show those correctly?
The release notes viewer uses the gtkhtml2 Python module, which is pretty limited in what it can and cannot show. Check the gnome-python2-gtkhtml2 package on RHEL-5 for more information on the module's limitations.
