Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 804447
flash to black screen when selecting language
Last modified: 2012-08-03 15:38:28 EDT
Description of problem: When installing from DVD, the graphics screen flashes to black immediately after selecting the Language and before choosing Keyboard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot an install DVD.
2. Press <Space> to choose default language (English). Or, click on Next.
Actual results: Graphics screen flashes to black before displaying the dialog to select the Keyboard
Expected results: Proceed directly from Language to Keyboard with no intervening flash to black.
Additional info: <Return> does not select the highlighted language. <UpArrow> and <DownArrow> keys do not change the selection. Both of those should work in addition to <Space> or [Next].
The arrow keys do work; they just take 5 seconds to respond the first time because of the need to spin up the DVD to page in the handling code. Some pre-paging would be nice. <Enter> still does not work to activate and select the highlighted choice, even after allowing 10 seconds.
This should be fixed in the new ui included with anaconda-18.3.
