    GIGANTIC font on the introductory dialog in LiveCD

    Hey all.

    For various reasons, I'm uber-curious about giving Mandriva One a go, and so last night I popped in the Live CD. Like with others, there's a few little dialogs about this and that to go through before you can start.

    Problem: the fonts are gigantic. So I can see maybe the top half of a word. Fortunately I had a feeling I knew what most of the dialogs were and just hit "next" each time until the LiveCD booted fully. It's going to be impossible to install if this keeps happening throughout the installation procedure.

    I think it should fix itself by the time you get to installing, but let us know. It's caused usually by bugs with X's attempt to automatically determine the correct DPI for your card and monitor.
