Description of problem:
As per what Ed Bailey said in Bug 77910, I think it would still be useful to
have the release notes link be added to the desktop for "root" - providing
visibility to system administrators or home users as to known problems and
workarounds that may already exist in the release notes. This should be a
Alternatively, a question could be asked before Anaconda goes about installing
files if the user would like to browse the release notes WHILE installing
packages in the background. This would not be as simple, but not too hard so as
to prevent its possibility.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see description
Actual Results: Availability of the release notes in the bottom left corner.
Expected Results: A question should be asked:
"Would you like to browse the release notes for this version of Red Hat Linux?
The release notes contain useful information about known issues with the release
and work arounds which may apply to your system. The installation will continue
in the background. YES -- NO".
Assigning to current RELEASE-NOTES maintainer.
Moved to distribution, as the release notes component is just for the words...
I don't want to add additional desktop icons, it's too much clutter
and not effective anyhow.
There is a button in the installer that allows you to read the release notes at
any point during the installation.
People keep asking for us to provide an easier way to view the release notes,
but the "Release Notes" button has been in the installer for the last three or
four releases. I don't see what purpose is served by shoving the release notes
in the user's face over and over. Closing as 'wontfix'.
