Description Miloslav Trmac 2003-02-10 18:40:17 UTC
Hello, 1)---------------- Section Mouse configuration: "To configure your mouse to work as a left-handed .... after boot, type gpm -B 321" (see also bug 64760 ;-) This is incorrect, as it would attempt to start a second copy of GPM. This should be done by adding `-B 321' to OPTIONS in /etc/sysconfig/gpm. Additionaly, this does not affect X (the environment more likely to be used with a mouse) at all! anaconda nor redhat-config-mouse provide a left-handed option unfortunately (? I'm *not* left-handed, so I don't really know how much is it needed). 2)---------------------- In the HTML version, set your Mozilla default encoding to something other than iso-8859-1 (i.e. iso-8859-2) and see the Booty Loader config section. The in "Intel(R) Pentium (R)", the (R) is wrong. This is because the document is in iso-8859-1, but has no META tag in <HEAD> specifying the character encoding. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): rhl-ig-x86(EN)-8.0.93-HTML-RHI

Additional note to 1): Preferences/Mouse (not System Settings/Mouse) does provide a GUI for left-handed mouse in X.

In the future, please file one bug per report. I am working on the charset meta information in the HTML. Thanks for pointing that out. I added <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> to the top, but if I switch encoding for the browser, the registered trademarks still show up as ?. The stylesheet might not be printing out valid iso-8859-1 encoding for the registered trademark.
Comment 3 Tammy Fox 2003-02-19 21:46:25 UTC
I have changed it to produce ®, ©, and ™ in the HTML files which are supposed to work regardless of charset. I changed the encoding of Mozilla and it seems to work.

The left-handed mouse information has been updated and will be made available in the next version of the manual. The text has been changed to: To configure your mouse to work as a left-handed mouse, reset the order of the mouse buttons. To do this, after you have booted the system, go to the Main Menu Button (on the Panel) => Preferences => Mouse. Thanks for the feedback.
