    Unhappy How to apply Bootloader Configuration settings?

    It looks like the F14 Bootloader Configuration GUI is missing "OK" button.

    Can someone please inform the developers so they can fix this mistake?

    So far the only way to configure the F14 Bootloader is by editing /boot/grub/grub.conf.

    Re: How to apply Bootloader Configuration settings?

    I think changes to the bootloader are made real-time so there would be no need for an "OK" button.
    If want you can submit a bug report at Bugzilla, but I don't think the developers would make a mistake like that.

    Re: How to apply Bootloader Configuration settings?

    Well, developers are human, and sometimes make careless mistakes. (One also sometimes finds that if they don't actually use something, they might miss a problem.)

    I'm not familiar with the program you're using to configure the bootloader--is this during installation or afterwards? It looks as if it's a screen during the installation.

    If that is the case, this might be one of those Just Me issues--or perhaps you're installing on a small screen and the OK button is hidden. (Or using a card Fedora can't handle, so it defaults to VESA.)

    That was mentioned on the testing list (the OK button being hidden) but I'd thought it was fixed.

    Is it a small screen? Is there any possibility that there is an OK button that is hidden?

    Is it an NVidia or ATI card? The reason for that question is that I believe there are various models of both cards that have to default to VESA. (I am not at all sure about that though.)

    Is this a live CD or an installation DVD? It's possible that I am correct that it was noted and fixed but that the fix didn't get into one or the other, but this is all assuming that the issue is that the screen is too small for the dialog. I have installed F14 a number of times and I think I would have noted the lack of an OK, or next button.

    If that's the case, then it's possible you have a slightly defective CD or DVD.

    So, we'd need a little more information to give better answers.

    This is not during installation. you can go to system>Administration>bootloader. further it does not save changes. This sentence is not true-("I think changes to the bootloader are made real-time so there would be no need for an "OK" button.")
    please verify before reply.

    It is clearly a mistake which is not being corrected. There are similar other threads

    yes, it is a mistake, and no the changes are not made in real-time.

    It's a bug, and has been reported but no developer replies to it in over 3 months now.
