products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
I just tried reproducing this both with 5.1 and a 5.2 nightly and couldn't make
it happen. If you pass 'mem=256M vnc' among the boot parameters, we fall back
to minstg2.img correctly and you'll see it try to start VNC, fail, and then go
in to the text mode installer. There's a failure message indicating it can't
start VNC and then automatically goes to the text mode installer. No tracebacks.
Looks like we nabbed this one via other fixes. Closing this one.
