How to capture screen during stallation?


I saw several books showing screen shots during the installation process. What kind of progrm or tool can we use to do this?

Thank you.

no idea really, probably taken inside a virtual machine, or just screenshots from their testing systems, not genuinely from the installation itself.

Are you wanting screenshots of a program installing or the installation of your linux distro?

Looking at your distro information, it shows that you are running RH9. If you are wanting screenshots of RH9 during installation, search this article for screenshot and it should give you the information that you need.

Guys, have you seen BIOS screenshot? I think 'authors' simply have good 'digital-camera' and make a good foto.

Thanks guys.

During a graphical installation, you can now press SHIFT-Print Screen and a screenshot of the current installation screen will be taken. These are stored in the following directory:

/root/anaconda-screenshots/

slizadel, yes this is what I am looking for. Though I have not tested it yet, but it should do what I want. Thanks.
