Description Will Woods 2006-08-09 15:51:24 UTC
using 'vncconnect=host' (on the kernel commandline) doesn't work properly.

Anaconda says:

The VNC server is now running.
Attempting to connect to vnc client on host metroid...
Starting graphical installation...

but a tcpdump of port 5500 and 5901 on metroid shows no connection. Furthermore,
netstat -tl shows that the machine is actually listening on port 5901. vncviewer
can connect to the test machine and the install continues normally.

Probably shouldn't clobber the correct /etc/resolv.conf with something only
partially correct.  Using the FQDN might work.
