explained in summary
Last two items after error are:
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py",line 786, in
file "/usr/lib anaconda/im/progress"
Graphics install falls the moment it begins. Text install works. After Text
version installs, can I change it to graphics?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.select graphics install.
3.choose remove all partitions.
4.from list of packages for server install, add X windows to list
5. begin and when progress screen appears, it immediately dies.
During the text mode install you should be asked if you want a Graphical or Text
If you've already installed the box, just edit /etc/inittab and change this line:
Then reboot and you should come up in a graphical login (assuming you installed
GNOME and/or KDE).
since the error msgs are had graphics info, I did NOT install GNOME or KDE
thinking the graphics was the problem. When the text install worked fine, I
assumed I was right. It is too late to add either? And how would I do that?
Also, which is YOUR personal favorite? I'll install that one, then I'll do
that id:5:initdefault: thing. Then I go graphics.
You will need to reinstall the system and be sure to pick 'Personal Desktop'
from the options. This will include the default environment we ship. Its ok if
you are running the text based installer.
