Description Peter van Egdom 2002-10-28 22:01:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
There's a small typo in the technical description of the 'check for bad blocks'
paragraph :

There's a sentence that goes like this:

"If you choose to check for bad blocks, you can monitor your progress on
 virtual console #6."

But, when I look at the virtual console documentation on page 28, virtual
console #6 is CTRL-ALT-F6. Pressing this key in combination during this part
of installation only shows a black screen. 

However, pressing CTRL-ALT-F5 _does_ show the progress of the bad block 

So the text should read :

If you choose to check for bad blocks, you can monitor your progress on
virtual console #5."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look in printed manual for this technical typo.
2. Look in online manual for this technical typo.
3. Observe that there's an error.

Actual Results:  CTRL-ALT-F6 gives me a black blank screen, whereas 
CTRL-ALT-F5 gives me the progress status as advertised.

Expected Results:  ..See call description..

Thanks for your interest in Red Hat Linux and for your feedback.

This correction has been made in the development version of the manual and will
be made available with the next release of the Red Hat Linux manuals.

Best regards,
