Description Kevin Benton 2004-05-07 04:16:48 EDT
Description of problem:
During attempted install of FC3T3 on host that has never been
previously loaded, it misinterprets (having booted from verified
CD's), "linux vnc vncconnect=" to mean it thinks it needs
drivers to load.  This is not the case.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
See above.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot FC3T3 Disk 1
2.Execute vncviewer -listen on vnc listening host.
3.Pass "linux vnc vncconect=" as documented in FC3T3
release notes.
Actual results:
Causes installation process to hang.

Expected results:
Linux would connect to VNC listener to complete the install.

Forgot to add: If I boot without the additional parameters during
install, it seems to work just fine.

What network card is in the machine?  This works for me here, but if
there's not a driver for your network controller, then there's no way
to do a VNC install :)
