Re: port-mac68k/37874: layout bug in sysinst menu

I have tried to reproduce the problem with -current as well as netbsd-4
sources, and couldn't. Can you give details about Macintosh model, screen
resolution, graphical console vs. serial console? And is what you sent in
the exact representation of what you saw on the screen? If yes, that would
hint at a general menuc quirk rather than a mac68k MD problem.

Still, I have moved up the "Choose your partition" menu by one line
(src/distrib/utils/sysinst/arch/mac68k/ It will then leave
seven lines for partition entries on an 80x24 screen, and display all its

Since MAXPARTITIONS == 8 on mac68k, and sysinst does not display the 'c'
partition, we can safely reduce the partition display to 7 lines, making
all fit nicely on an 80x24 display. Should mac68k ever move to more than 8
partitions, that display needs to be scrollable.
