Description ted 1999-10-07 07:59:00 UTC
Hi !

I tried to install RH6.1 on a Dell Pentium II 400MHz
Machine. I have a Swedish keyboard, I want to use the
graphic loader (init level 5) and Lilo.
The graphic installation program do not take into account
the fact that the keybaord is Swedish (it is set as an
American one), the graphic loader is not set on (it stays in
level 3) and the changes in Lilo boot partitions names (dos
-> Windows98 and linux -> Linux) are not taken into account.
However, If I use the text installation program, these
problems do not appear.

By the way, why the graphical installation program does not
ask me the name of the machine as does the text installation
one ?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

We are aware of problems with runlevel 5 not getting set correctly in
inittab (see bug #5532) as well as problems with lilo labels not
sticking (#5497)  You should be asked for the hostname of your system
in the network config screen (same screen where you tell it whether to
use dhcp for networking.)  Please see the above referenced bugs for
further information about these problems.
