Description of problem:
The help files are empty (blank) in the Beta 2 full DVD installer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
i started to work on it.
No it's just not possible. Help is provided by documentation. We cannot reuse Mandriva documentation because of license. It will ask weeks of work to get proper one, which should happen for Mageia2. We are working on removing help button for final release to avoid getting these blank screens.
of course this is what i meant but miss explained. I started to work on hiding the Help buttons for mageia 1.
I'd send an untested patch to Anne for disabling all 'interactive' layer's help buttons, what was remainaing was pure gtk+ help buttons
Yep dmorgan is working on it. Still some issues left
Isn't it a bit easier to create one msg saying stg like "Help will be available in next Mageia...." in all of the now blank screens?

There won't be any blank screens if the Help button isn't there to be clicked.
That much I understand too. But if one creates a few lines with the same msg for all help screens I was just guessing that might be a lot less work than hiding all those buttons....

General ping for Alpha 3
In pre Beta 1, selecting the help button brings up a dialog with
"Cannot display URL". (Writing from memory, may not be exact text).

There are help files available now, partly updated ones from Mandriva 2005LE
Kamil is packaging them for beta2, so re-assigning this bug to him.
The files still need to be improved, so if you test beta2 and see things that are wrong with the explanation in the help files, please file a new bug report (1 per issue) and assign it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The help won't be translated into other languages before it is good in English
Can we close this bug?

As soon as someone confirms that while installing Mga2b2, the help buttons work :)
If the help is there, but there are things wrong with it (there are, we didn't finish updating them), please open a new report (1 per issue)
Fixed in beta2 isos
