Description of problem:
"display" for anaconda needs to be documented in all apropriate docs. possibly
add man 5 ks.cfg with partial listing of options.
It is possible to control a graphical installation remotely by passing the
display=ip:0 option on the command line. Likewise a short ks.cfg (a one liner)
can give you a jumpstart on having to key in anything locally on the system:
#RH72 minimal ks.cfg that will display the installer on your X11 workstation
nfs --server 192.168.0.1 --dir /var/ftp/pub/rh72/i386
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open all RH documentation
2. Search documentation for display
3. No hits come back related to the "display" option that can be passed on the
command line to allow the graphical anaconda to display on a remote X11
workstation running X-Windows
Actual Results: anaconda display documentation not found
Expected Results: expected that the anaconda display option for remote
graphical installs would be documented
document it in several of the docs and also create a man page for ks.cfg or
kickstart or both
We'll do what we can to begin identifying and documenting additional boot
options and kernel options in the Installation Guide. This may take a couple of
releases to completely hammer it out, but the work will be started for the next
release of Red Hat Linux.
This has been added to a section of new content for the next release of Red Hat
Thanks for the feedback.
