Comment 5 Ingo Schaefer 2006-07-22 10:30:15 UTC
These two points are missing in this bugzilla entry:

- Strange characters on top of the screen, looking like some kind of debug output:
"AYT[G+^]T[U+,]C[U+`][G+^]3c" (characters in square brackets mean a character
looking like this two together)

- The caption to the "goNetConfig"-Screen where one can enter IP Address,
Netmask and Gateway and DNS looks like "z/IPL Konfiguration" in the german
version, this should only look "IP Konfiguration" (imho)
(and on my screen it looked not like the attached image - my anaconda was from

This is fixed in later versions of anaconda (at least in F7 test 1 - probably
earlier) by more intelligent line wrapping.  Thanks for the bug report.
