FC12 Kickstart and Anaconda


I am successfully able to kickstart FC12 onto my system, however once anaconda runs it changes the resolution of the console when running a text mode install. Are there any kickstart options that can control this behavior?

I tried to set resolution and nofb in the kickstart configuration. I am using the text option for text install.

My problem is that my remote KVM doesn't support the console resolution.

Thanks for any help.

You cant set the resolution in the kickstart file but you can pass it as a kernel argument when booting, try 'resolution=640x480' or 'resolution=800x600'

cheers

I tried the resolution parameter, but anaconda said it was an unkown parameter.

When you boot from whichever media to perform the installation, you should get a 'boot: ' prompt. Usually you'll type 'linux ks=xxxxx ... ' etc, if you include 'resolution=800x600' on that same line it should work
