Description Morgan Olausson 2009-09-27 06:46:19 UTC
Description of problem:
The installed system is non-graphical instead of graphical. I expected the installed system to be graphical. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 12.30

How reproducible:
Install with boot.iso (090925) 

Steps to Reproduce:
I chose the following entries:
1.Install or upgrade system
2.Due to low RAM anaconda goes into text-mode
3,4,5.Language, keyboard,install anyway.
6.Reinstall anyway.
9.Use entire drive, I used sdb(whith my bios is told to boot from)
10. Write changes to disc
Actual results:
Only 200 packages is installed and it is not a graphical system.

Expected results:
Normal graphical fedora12 system.

A text install implies a text installed system.  If you want a graphical system installed, you need to run the graphical installer.  Your options here are:  install more memory, use VNC, or install the graphical package groups with yum on your current installation.

Ok thanks for explaining. So that will probably be the case also with release version of F12 installation DVD? Not enough RAM for anaconda, no standard option for installation of graphical Fedora12?
