Which screen? Which line?

Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2003-01-13 19:26:56 UTC
never mind... I see it in re0113.0... Matt, Mike: something has regressed since
the first builds. You can see how the "Welcome to Red Hat Linux" in Japanese is
broken into two lines.

Looks like the reflow in newt isn't working. Also, the number of scan lines
isn't being detected properly anymore; lots of black at the bottom of the screen.

Comment 3 Eido Inoue 2003-01-13 19:39:09 UTC
FWIW, I can't reproduce the problem by firing up any of the config tools from
launching the command line (within diet/wlite linked bterm). Can reproduce only
from the built images.

Comment 4 Eido Inoue 2003-01-14 05:37:48 UTC
last build where it works is the 11th. it breaks from the 12th onwards. neither
newt, bogl, ncurses changed.

looking into it...

Comment 5 Matt Wilson 2003-01-14 06:39:14 UTC
I was wrong, it was between re0109 and re0110

I think I have this fixed in CVS -- should be fixed in nightly trees for
tomorrow/beginning of next week.

Comment 10 Leon Ho 2003-02-04 04:42:28 UTC
It is still showing in latest tree. ie.: 
- The footer only shows until 3/4 of the line for CJK. Afterward it is "English" - 
look like it has not redraw probably? 
- in Disk Druid 
	- it only shows until "Start" word in the header of disk table, the rest are 
	- it cannot shows last character for "free space" in JP 

Comment 11 Matt Wilson 2003-02-04 06:43:29 UTC
the help lines can be fixed with a patch I made.  The disk druid column headers
is a snack.py bug that will take longer.

Comment 12 Matt Wilson 2003-02-04 16:53:59 UTC
found disk druid bug.  should be fixed soon.  these were newt bugs.

Comment 13 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-06 02:16:22 UTC
Fixed in newer newt

Comment 14 Jay Turner 2003-02-06 13:32:57 UTC
Adrian, can you poke through the latest installer trees and make sure that
everything looks good?  Thanks.

Comment 15 Eido Inoue 2003-02-06 16:55:06 UTC
