Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 75970
Next button does not accept mouse click

Description of Problem:
During an install last night from CD-ROM on a Dell Latitude I noticed that once
I reached the screen where the install class is selected (Personal, Workstation,
Custom, etc.), regardless of my choice, I could not click the Next (or Back)
button. I could still select the different classes, so the installer wasn't
locked. None of the VTs showed any errors or interesting information that seemed
applicable. After a bit of head scratching, and restarting the installer from
floppy and the CD again, I tried using Alt+n to move to the next screen. This
Always (at least on this Latitude, I've done other installs on other hardware
without these issues).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the installer (only had floppy and CD-ROM boot available at the time)
2. Move through the screens until the install class screen appears.
3. Select Install and then any class.
4. Click Next, nothing happens (same with Back).
5. Use Alt+n to advanced to the next screen.
Note that the workaround is to boot with 'linux resolution=1024x768' or whatever
the native resolution of your LCD is. Unfortunately, the driver seems to try to
be smarter than the user and falls back to another resolution without any real
way to pass this on. this then breaks our font size settings.
