Ticket #1136 (closed defect: fixed)
Ubuntu Installer missing graphics
|Reported by:||Graham||Owned by:|
I am creating a course to install and use Kubuntu Gutsy (7.10).
For those who are interested: link to course.
I was taking screenshots of the installer on the live CD and noticed that on "Step 2 of 6" ("Where are you?") timezone selection the graphic for the world map didn't render correctly.
You get the dots representing the city location but no actual map of the world.
In fact you get the text from the previous screen showing behind the dots and box.
If you do a "Back"->"Next" it clears the text from the previous screen, but no world map graphic.
Host 1: WinXP SP2, 1.25Gb RAM 120Gb HDD, nVidia GeForceGo (Dell Inspiron 8600 upgraded) Host 2: Kubuntu (upgraded to latest), VIA mobo, Athlon 3000XP, 2Gb RAM 250Gb HDD, nVidia 6200 TwinViewed (prop. driver) VirtualBox machine with 256Mb RAM, 10Gb disc, CDRom image: kubuntu-7.10-desktop-i386.iso, Audio: ALSA/Windows DirectShow, NAT network, no serial, no shares.
Both machines created from scratch. Both showing same problem
Problem also occurs in Qemu 0.9.1 (cirrus and std-vga drivers)
Tested in VMware 1.0.4 (spit, spit :-) graphic displays correctly.
Admittedly looks like it could be a bug in Gutsy installer, but why different on different hardware?
I will check VMware on WinXP also Ubuntu-7.10-desktop-i386.iso (Gnome edition)
