Description Ingo Schaefer 2006-07-20 13:34:37 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #186219 +++

Description of problem:

While installing current fc6 devel (rescue-cd dated 2006/07/17) I found several
errors with displayed texts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fc6 devel (rescue-cd dated 2006/07/17)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to install current fc devel tree
2. choose "german" as installation language
3. watch the screen

Actual results:
- Several strings are larger than the space in the grey dialog box and flow over
the boundary.
- 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)

Expected results:
The boxes should be wider to let the text fit in (or maybe some linebreaks?)

Additional info:

-- Additional comment from on 2006-07-20 09:24 EST --
found out several things about this.

I installed fc5 in text mode on another machine (i386) and found this text
fragments also.

Same for the current development anaconda.

Possible Reason:
The localized strings are in some cases much longer than the original ones, so
they are printed over the boundary of the grey background "dialog" box. After
closing the dialog box, only the space occupied from this dialog will be
reprinted with the blue background, so the overflown text stays there forever.
