Description Chris Runge 1999-09-08 14:53:15 UTC
Under the new GTK+ installer I have two problems on the X
configuration screen (the one that auto-identifies the video
card, RAM, monitor, etc.).  First, when I test the
configuraton the window that has the 10 sec. countdown
appears briefly and then goes away.  I then realized that
the X screen was a virtual desktop and I had to move the
mouse to the upper left to eventually find it.

Second, back on the original X configuration screen any
mouse click anywhere tests the configuration.  It is
necessary to use the keyboard to proceed.

Same over here

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 1999-09-19 13:52:59 UTC
Did some more testing with 6.0.50 as shipped to the beta testers on
the first cd:

-Gtk X-config: Choosing use graphical login after the 10s timeout
doesn't work I still get a textmode login (still get runlevel 3)
-Gtk X-config: Doesn't show and or ask what resolution it chooses just
what card it has found. Choosing a resolution manually doesn't help,
you still get the default 640x480 with a large virtual screen.
