Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 683548
has two active workspaces
Last modified: 2014-09-30 19:39:51 EDT
Description of problem:
Most easily noticed when using virt, and a stray alt-tab happens to hit the focused VM.
anaconda appears locked to both, so it may not have any functional issues, but it seems a bit weird.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Happen to hit alt-tab
2. See the workspace dialog
This was a lorax-built tree, FWIW.
Patch is awaiting review:
This is a low risk change, I am proposing this as an F15 nice-to-have.
Fixed rawhide: f851fc4636269a0f6a18bcd2f876d374c6e675f5.
Discussed at 2011-03-18 blocker/NTH review meeting, we agreed this is a low-impact fix and worth taking for Beta if anaconda team decides to pull it. AcceptedNTH.
Fixed f15-branch: 80035c6b7b4a2b802c597ce6775a11620240f3ab
lorax-0.3.2-1.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
The update does not appear to fix this issue. When installing with a custom boot.iso created with updated lorax, I still see multiple workspaces.
Alt-tab does not change workspaces during installation, if that is the original bug.
Install with anaconda
Use ctrl-alt- <arrow keys> to switch between multiple workspaces during the install process.
Switch between workspaces with identical content, a little strange but not a functional impact.

this is not what I am seeing. I fetched this boot.iso:
the timestamp says:
boot.iso 21-Mar-2011 22:51 282M
alt-tab does nothing for me, ctrl-alt-right displays the workspace switcher but does not allow to switch workspace as there's only Workspace 1. What machine were you testing this on virt or physical?
My apologies, there was a version mixup on the iso that I used to test. After downloading an updated iso, this is indeed fixed.
lorax-0.3.2-1.fc15 has been pushed to the Fedora 15 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
