Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8695
Installer forgets choices when going back and forth
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
When going back to previous screens, and then next to the screen you started at, choices (such as Skip X Configuration) are forgotten. I think it would be nicer if they were remembered.
We will work to improve this before the final release.
Brent please confirm this was fixed on Winston and mark appropriately.
This is fixed in Red Hat Linux 7 in most circumstances. If you go back to a
previous screen, it will remember the changes that you made. If you continue
going back past that screen and then go forward to it again, your changes will
still be there. However, anaconda does forget a change in this situation:
Imagine that you are at a screen, and make a change of some sort, but press
"Back" to go to the previous screen, then you return to the screen you made the
change to...your choices will not appear. Clicking "Next" causes your changes
to be remembered by anaconda, so clicking "Back" before you press "Next" causes
your changes to be lost. However, this is a very minor issue, so I'm closing
the bug. Open a new bug if you think this is still an issue.
