Please specify the date of build too, this was supposed to have been fixed a few days ago.
Comment 3 Rémi Verschelde 2017-04-04 11:40:02 CEST
Well it seems to be a build with at least drakx-installer-stage2 17.75 as the translations are those used to fix bug 20360.

Comparing this one with the screenshots in bug 20360, it looks like everything is scaled up. We could shrink translations again, but it hardly seems like a proper fix - we should prevent the UI elements from having such a huge scale and font with such low screen resolutions.

humm..
It's a side effect of putting all buttons on the same bar:
http://gitweb.mageia.org/software/drakx/commit/perl-install/diskdrake/hd_gtk.pm?id=947ab9bb0fb06611b5bd54465f98545ff175afb2

Compare with mga5 that had 2 button lines:
https://doc.mageia.org/installer/5/en/content/diskdrake.html

A solution could be to revert to 2 bars :-(

What is strange is that this problem doesn't exist in UEFI mode, same computer.
To be accurate, Mageia6-sta2-x86_64-DVD.iso has the problem in BIOS/GPT mode and not in UEFI mode, Mageia6-rc-x86_64-DVD.iso has the problem in BIOS/GPT mode and I don't know in UEFI mode because it doesn't boot (vmlinuz not found)

Same problem with Mageia 6 RC
Comment 8 Thierry Vignaud 2017-04-10 19:09:41 CEST
This is a different issue (the partitioning wizard).
Please open a different bug report for that
Comment 9 André DESMOTTES 2017-04-10 20:26:18 CEST
I think you are speaking about Comment 7, because Comment 8 is really the same bug.
Comment 10 André DESMOTTES 2017-04-16 10:23:18 CEST
Sorry, I meant:

Or use a smaller font? The font looks excessively large on all these screenshots.

Using a smaller padding around texts could help too, if that's doable.
