install system with vnc, get the following error:

rpcbind: rpcbind terminating on signal. Restart with "rpcbind -w"
06:06:33 Boot argument 'vnc' is deprecated. In the future, use 'inst.vnc'.
06:06:33 Boot argument 'serial' is deprecated. In the future, use

Comment 3 Kamil Páral 2012-03-21 10:45:22 EDT
Guys, please do propose this as a blocker right away, it clearly violates the criteria:

"The installer must be able to complete an installation using the text, graphical and VNC installation interfaces"

Proposing now.
