Description Salvatore Insalaco 2003-03-20 14:31:11 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.0.1)

Description of problem:
During a PXE serial console installation the system is setted to boot from a
serial console (for example agetty is activated in inittab).
Unfortunately, grub starts without the "serial" and "terminal" options, and with
graphical splash screen, so it's totally unusable on terminal devices, even with
ones who have the "text to serial" option, as the HP Blade Servers.
There's also no option during the install to disable the grub graphical splash
RH 8.0 has the correct behaviour.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH EL AS 2.1 with PXE boot
2. Select grub as your default boot manager
3. Restart after the installation

Actual Results:  There's no grub screen, and no possibility to modify the
default options: if something is wrong in kernel parameters you have to
reinstall everything...

Expected Results:  Grub loads with the serial option

Additional info:

RH 8.0 has the correct behaviour
