Description slickgardner 1999-07-26 18:13:11 UTC
I'm not sure if this is a sparc specific or not.

The 6.0 install on a sparc does not (apparently) have the
old blue background with ASCII character dialog boxes and
such, it now has a plain screen with dialogs made like:
| Dialog |

All of the new/changed parts of the install look fine, but
some parts still have the old blue backround and dialogs.
They include:
Mouse setup
Timezone setup
And one other step near the end that i can't for the life
of me remember.

Nothing big, just very inconsistant.

Comment 1 Jay Turner 1999-07-26 18:24:59 UTC
What type of sparc are you using??  We have not seen this problem in
the test lab.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-26 18:38:59 UTC
The parts that you mention as 'old' are the parts that are run
as external programs. Perhaps the install didn't detect the
terminal type right - are you running in a serial console?

Comment 3 slickgardner 1999-07-27 16:57:59 UTC
I am running from a serial console, and the following show up with
the old scheme:
Config Mouse

I can repro it 100%, both on a hardware terminal and using minicom
from the console or in an xterm.

Comment 4 Jay Turner 2000-02-10 21:18:59 UTC
This will happen on serial console installations.
