Description Andre Robatino 2012-11-03 19:18:43 UTC
Created attachment 637606 [details]
screenshot showing list of cities truncated at the top

Description of problem:
During a text install, I want to select America/New_York as the time zone. After selecting America, the list of cities is truncated at the top, so not all cities are shown (including New_York).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-18.24-1 (in 18 Beta TC7)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to select America/New_York as the timezone.
Actual results:
Can't see number for New_York. Must type it in full.

Expected results:
Should be able to see number for New_York.

Should mention that I had to scroll up using Shift-PgUp when trying to see the entire list. That's not an obvious thing to do. Not sure if there's another way that would allow me to see the whole list.

On bare metal with 1680x1050 screen I see the whole list. On KVM I see the same problem as Andre describes. On KVM over serial console I again see the whole list.

I think the best option would be to paginate the list using "more" or similar command.

Comment 3 Martin Sivák 2013-01-09 10:09:44 UTC
We can't use more because of some really dumb terminals. But pagination is planned for f19.
