Description of problem:
During graphical installation of Red Hat Limbo I experienced some
strange widget behaviour of the new GTK2 toolkit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Play a bit with the new widget sets mentioned below by
Actual Results: Some weird (but innocent) things happened with the new GTK2
Expected Results: No weird things should happen when clicking and dragging
on various GTK2 widget sets.
for example :
- At some point in the installer (Keyboard Configuration), there is
according to the help-bar :
"Use the blank text field at the bottom of
the screen to test your keyboard configuration"
mention of a blank text field, but that text field is -nowhere-
to be seen.
- At the Anaconda 'Boot loader configuration' screen :
which resembles the following layout :
[ ] Dos/Windows
[ ] Red Hat
First clicking on the Dos 'pushbutton' will highlight the
line with a blue bar and on the second click the push-
button reacts as it should.
This also happens with the line with Red Hat.
(I would expect on first the click the pushbutton reacts
as it should).
Also, when being inside the release notes textscroller, there's
no cursor to be seen, so reading the release notes is ... rather
strange.. using the page up / page down keys and / or the cursor
Help is still being updated. Did the third. Second is still needing to be done.
And all fixed now in CVS
I re-installed Limbo beta 2 and did not see a blank text field to test the
keyboard configuration at the Keyboard Configuration screen.
Yes, we didn't add it back. But the help has been updated appropriately to not
refer to it.
