I might fire up a silly question but i have no other choice.
I have an embedded board and i want to install Centos 5.5 on it with the use of a usb DVD-ROM but my problem is that the board does not have any VGA output.
I followed the below guide which as far as i understood it will let you perform the installation via VNC.
I did all the procedures from the guide, i started Remmina VNC in listening mode and the system boots correctly with the below output:
Running anaconda, the CentOS system installer - please wait...
WARNING!!! VNC server running with NO PASSWORD!
You can use the vncpassword=<password> boot option
if you would like to secure the server.
The VNC server is now running.
Attempting to connect to vnc client on host 192.168.0.10...
Press <enter> for a shell
Starting graphical installation...
XKB extension not present on :1
What i dont get is...if i want to connect and perform the install via VNC.. why do i have to set my laptop (runnung ubuntu) to listening mode and the embedded board has to connect on it? Isnt it the other way around, meaning that i should connect to the board FROM my laptop?
Is this supposed to give me a VNC to the installation proccess or am i completely mistaken for the whole thing?
