Description Niels de Vos 2009-05-05 07:44:38 EDT
Description of problem:
when starting the installer (anaconda) in text-mode, the installer (depending on hardware) gives following warnings about not using the graphical installer:

1) You do not have enough RAM to use the graphical installer. Starting text mode.
2) Graphical installation not available... Starting text mode.

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

How reproducible:
Start the installer in text-mode. Add parameter 'text' on the kernel-cmdline or include this directive in ks.cfg.

1) is displayed when the system has 128MB of RAM.
2) is displayed when the installer uses minstg2.img instead of stage2.img 

Actual results:
Behavior as expected - installation finished ok.

Expected results:
Behavior as expected - installation finished ok.

Additional info:
minstg2.img contains an other error when installing in VMware. lspci is missing and makes anaconda backtrace. However this is not relevant to this issue, just a note for any other repoducers. (Bug 476476)

Suppress warning about changing to text-mode if not in graphics-mode

If the user requested text-mode or cmdline-mode it is not needed to display a message about missing X (minstg2.img) or too little memory.

I've just realized that the fix (and the proposed patch) is the same as the one for #456325 and was commited on 2nd of April. So I'm changing this to DUP after all and adding the content of this bug to #456325.
