Description Alon 2008-06-09 09:50:38 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 5.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installation of a server using KVM-over-IP
2. simply start the installation process.
3. Once the installation starts, it tries to identify the Monitor and discover
KVM, then it prompts that "Hey you are using KVM and no real monitor is
attached. You are kicked into Text Mode Installation only".

In 4.x  such a problem didn't exist.
Who cares if I'm using KVM or a real monitor?
Why can't I use the GUI with a KVM?
There is a need to add a 'You are using a KVM, we can't identify the monitor,
would you like to use the generic VGA settings?'
Or,. skipp the VGA prob as a whole.
Just like there is the option for:   pci=nommconf  there should be an option
like:  vga=noconf or something like that.

Please advise if such a boot parameter exists, and if not,. try to incorporate
such an option so that I can continue to do my installs as I used to in 4.x
(currently 4.6).

BTW, I'm using CentOS.
