4. Restrictions/Known Bugs
-------------------------------------------------------------

o Problem with desktop resolution greater than 1024*768
On some machine, the maximum resolution of the monitor cannot
be automatically set up by the Xorg configuration utility.
Until this is fixed, here is a workaround:
As root, get into the terminal and get out of X:
#init 3
Then create the xorg.conf file if it doesn't exist:
#X -configure
#mv xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
#vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Add the section below:

SubSection "Display"
ViewPort 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" ⇒⇒ add this line
EndSubSection

Save the changes to xorg.conf.

Start X again:
#init 5

o SELinux is disabled by default.
When enabling SELinux, the "xguest" account becomes available and
enabled.

o mingw32-matahari package has not been included.

o kickstart:
When using the anaconda-ks.cfg kickstart configuration file
generated from the DVD installation, it fails.
There are 2 ways to workaround this issue:

1st solution:
In the popup window dialog that reads "Unable to read package
metadata...", click the "edit" button , then a pop dialog
show, select "CD/DVD" and click ok, then it will continue successfully.

2nd solution:
edit the anaconda-ks.cfg file and replace the following
--baseurl=cdrom:sr0
with
--baseurl=file:///mnt/source
