I have not been able to reproduce this with re0206.0 (a preliminary version of RC1).

Comment 3 harry.heinisch 2002-03-05 13:59:21 UTC
This behavior still exists with the new rc1 bits.  It does not happen when 
doing a network (nfs) install. 

Also - when you get to the screen which would normally display the 
text/graphical logon choice) then select the "back" button,  turn off the Help 
(get rid of the split screen) and go forward again the screen displays 


Comment 4 Alexandre Petit-Bianco 2002-03-11 20:40:23 UTC
I can't reproduce this on a ES40 with 4GB of RAM and a Q-Logic controller.
I tried a regular custom install, an everything install and a KDE only install.

Can you tell us a bit more about the packages that you're installing?

        Manually partition with fdisk (experts only)
  -  Firewall config.
        No firewall
  -  Package Selections
        Classic X Window Systems
        X Window Systems

        3Dlabs Permedia2 (generic)
        Video RAM = 8MB

After the build is completed the next choice is for terminal selection.
At this point if you do not hide "Help" you don't get the option of graphical 
or text. If you do hide help you get the option...
