install/45816: Screen corruption in German sysinst install
>Synopsis: Screen corruption in German sysinst install
>Arrival-Date: Wed Jan 11 15:50:00 +0000 2012
>Originator: Andreas Gustafsson
>Release: NetBSD-current, source date 2012.01.09.11.52.43
See the "How-To-Repeat" section below. I noticed this behavior while
testing my recent sysinst changes adding support for installing the
source sets, but testing a version without my changes gave the same
result. "It was like this when I got here, I swear!"
Start installing -current/i386 on a PC using sysinst from
the PC console (not a serial console).
Select German as the installation language.
Proceed with the installation to the point where you select the
location of the install sets ("Medium auswahlen"). Select
"a: CD-ROM / DVD".
You will now see a screen where you can select the CD drive and
path(s). The cursor is positioned on the menu item for selecting the
drive: "Gerat cd0a" (with umlaut where appropriate).
Press enter to change the drive. You will see a pop-up window
saying "Laufwerk [cd0a]:".
Press enter again to accept the default.
Note how there is now a stray close parenthesis in the rightmost
column of the screen.
Press enter two more times.
Note how a second copy of the text from the top of the screen ("Geben
Sie das CD-Laufwerk...") has now appeared below the menu.
Press enter a few more times and see how yet more copies of the text
keep appearing on the screen.
