Description Chris Adams 2004-04-24 21:50:22 EDT
The (preliminary?) release notes for FC2t3 say that while there is
support for graphical installs from FTP and HTTP, text mode is still
the default.  I did an FTP install from a rawhide mirror and it
defaulted to graphical install (I didn't even think about it until later).

Also, a package change was missed; glut was replaced by freeglut.

Thanks for your feedback...

The glut to freeglut change took place in the Fedora Core 1 timeframe,
and was documented in the FC1 release notes.

I'm working on getting information regarding the conditions under
which ftp/http installs are graphical by default...
Comment 2 Ed Bailey 2004-05-06 12:13:38 EDT
Ok, I got the word: you'll get a graphical install if you have more
than 12MB.  Updating the release notes to reflect this.  Thanks again
for your feedback!
