Description of problem:
RFE: Need ability to control an install remotely such as forwarding the
anaconda installer or using VNC
Forwarding the anaconda installer could be implemented using the DISPLAY
VNC might be a little nicer due to the fact of the connectionless state VNC
provides; however, guessing the IP address of the install may be fun, so a
combination of both forwarding and VNC might be good. Could be that forwarding
will inform you of the IP and you can then connect to it using VNC.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Good idea will consider for a future release.
We do not see this as a priority given our customer feedback.
if you really need it, see docs/making-screenshots in anaconda SRPM
but it's kinda inconvenient
Isn't this already fixed? Booting with "display=xxx:yyy" already causes anaconda
to display on another machine (still need to go trhough the first several text
screens locally or via a serial console).
OTOH, doing it with VNC could be even better...
