No way to select default boot in TUI
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:43 EDT
In TUI install, when configuring the boot entries for LILO/GRUB,
there is no ( documented ) option for selecting/changing the default boot.
Is this for Hampton Beta 1?
yes, Hampton Beta 1
Fixed in CVS
Are you seeing the same issue with Beta 2?
Yes, still there in beta2.
3-13 is after the anaconda was cut for beta2. Should be better in beta 3
(although without translations at that point)
It all looks the same in beta3 as it was in beta2.
Hit <F2> to select the default boot image.
I know that F2 is the right key. You know it. But thousands of others don't,
because it is not documented ANYWHERE. Not on the screen, not in the help (F1).
The user must first guess that this feature exists in the first place and then
he must guess the correct key. This is a bug woth fixing IMO.
Yes, it is there. See http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/tuibl.jpg for the
screenshot I just took of test mode, but I've also verified in the running
installer with current trees in both English and German.
Indeed, I wouldn't have closed the bug out if the bottom of the screen didn't
clearly state that you hit <F2> to change the default boot label.
It is all OK in beta4. Thanks.
