Remastersys /wheezy NO desktop can't run the installer


Wheezy with no DE latest remastersys working , I can make a dist or back up ISO and boot it.
I can't install it.
I read that plymouth was required, didnt help.

I want to make a dist iso with no desktop. To be used as a headless server.
But for some reason the boot up splash screen will not show an install option.
Remastersys log.

When I last used remastersys with Debian, the Debian installer did not work and the remastersys installer needed to be used. On a standard system with GUI you would go to the System tab, Administration and would have the Remastersys Installer as an option. You could try the suggestion at the link below and use from a terminal: sudo remastersys-installer gui

http://lxlinux.com/remastersys.html

I haven't tried this myself so don't know how well it will work if at all.
