You shouldn't be in runlevel 5 when installing in text mode.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-16 13:26:52 EDT
Was this a kickstart install?  If so, what was your xconfig line?
Comment 3 Toma 2004-08-16 21:22:49 EDT
No, just a straight Anaconda GUI install with Minimal packages 
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-18 17:23:37 EDT
Not sure exactly how that managed to happen, but put in a little bit
more error checking to keep it from happening in the future.
