:Followup: here is a pre-rolled ISO containing this installer:
:made with 'make installer_release' from yesterday's sources plus the
:patch in my previous message.
Ok, here's some feedback, logging in as 'installer':
* ESC doesn't work as expected. When I hit ESC, nothing happens until
I hit another key (like return), and then the installer executes both
actions. This leads to multiple actions being unexpectedly executed.
* ESC[+some_other_key] exits the top level menu. It definitely should
not do that.
* A large number of directories, including /root, were created with
user id 1000 instead of 0. That may have been a side effect of
the way you built the ISO because they are uid 1000 on the ISO too?
Other then that, a basic fresh installion appears to work.
If you are trying to detect cursor escape sequences, which are typically
ESC+'['+<blah>, the only way to detect a lone 'ESC' is to have a
fairly fast timeout looking for the additional ANSI esp sequence
characters after you have received the ESC character before you give
up and just assume a single ESC key was hit.
