On some computers I can not use graphical installation interface of Fedora 9. So I use text mode.I would like to have a very small installation with very few installed packages, so at package selection I uncheck everything. In text mode installation there is no option to customize installed packages down to package names. I can only check main themes.So I uncheck everything and installation starts. This method results over 400 packages to bo installed... This is too much with many unnecessary packages.If I use graphical interface and uncheck every package name at custom package selection then about 150 packages will be installed.Is there any good way to use textmode installation and don't install more than 400 packages?
I have a problem with my newly installed ATI driver so my Fedora 12 boots to a frozen graphic mode display.I need to force it to boot to text mode interface to start adjusting my X configuration. What to do?This is a new Fedora 12 installation without any change to GRUB etc.
As a measure to improve my learning curve by experimenting and messing around with config files, I would like to install Ubuntu in Virtualbox in text only mode. This would save disk space, improve learn the OS better and also gives the freedom to mess around without worrying too much. Can anyone tell me how to install a simple version of Ubuntu 8.04 (that's the distro I choose since it requires lesser RAM than the current version) in virtualbox in text only mode? During the installation there doesn't seem to be a choice in installation modes. If not, should we install the OS normally and change the run levels afterwards to boot in text mode?
I had tried to install Centos 5.3 using the graphical interface but it gives me a black screen with no response. I've read into it and installed in text mode but still need a graphical interface. Whats the command/steps I need to take?
It seems I had no say in the matter. The installer automatically did text mode and it starts up in text mode now. I'm very new to Fedora, though I had Ubuntu installed recently but removed it because Fedora seemed a little more interesting to me. I'm on an HP Pavilion dv2807nr laptop if that helps.
I tried installing Fedora 11 on my i386 using the 6 CD set that I downloaded. Since my system has only 128M of RAM, the text install mode was used. The 1st CD installation seemed to work OK. After 181 out of 181 packages were installed, the system rebooted and did not ask for me to insert the other CDs. now when my system comes up, it is always in text mode.
Q. Is there a command I can use to have the remaining CD's installed so I can install the graphics system?
I made a clean installation of F15 on my laptop, is a Qosmio x505, it has an nvidia M360, so I download the nvidia drivers and intall it separatly.To install the nvidia drivers I change the runlevel with the commandln -sf /lib/systemd/system/multi-user.target /etc/systemd/system/default.targetAnd then, change it again to the graphical mode with the commandln -sf /lib/systemd/system/graphical.target /etc/systemd/system/default.targetEverything seems ok, but the system only boot in text mode. I can load the Gnome with the command startx without problems, but how can I made that it loads the Gnome automatically?
I have posted about 20 Slitaz Video Tutorial I made. I thought it might be helpful for new comers to Slitaz. I've have 2 playlists. One for the GUI interface and one for Text-Mode. Both playlists can be found at:[URL].. Let me know if there is anything you would like me to go over in future tutorials.

Since the kernel of F11 live-cd can't recognize my video card, I have to run it in text mode. I also have to run "liveinst" in text mode and the install progess seemed ok. But on the partitioning selection step, there is no "custom layout" option! I rembered that in the graphic mode there was such option. How can I find it in the text mode?
I install Fedora10 in my computer but when it begins the process of installation, it says that "x startup failed" and falls to text mode of installation. Howerver, the graphic mode works in another computer.
