Re: Installing Fedora7 in a VirtualPC2007 guest?

I modified the start options on the first boot by adding 3 to the list
of parameters I used previously.
THis brought up a character based set of screens that were much like
the ones I had glimpsed behind the graphics mess on the graphics
screens. :-)
So I used these to continue the install through. When I was done
Fedora started a sequence of commands on the black character screen
and finally stopped at the screen I am currently on with a prompt:

Fedora release 7 (Moonshine)
Kernel 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 on an i686
localhost login:

THis did not happen in the graphics version, I seem to recall just
this line there too but then Fedora automatically continued, now it
just sits there.
What am I supposed to do now?

This sounds like a fairly standard init level 3 boot

It sounds like the redhat graphical boot is the casue of the garbled characters you where seeing. Try booting up to init level 5, but removing the 'rhgb' options as well ?

If this works, you can make the change permanently by editting the file /etc/grub.conf and making the same changes there.


Remember that this is the very first
boot after installing the files so there are no user accounts created
yet for example. That is supposed to happen in the following screens.

Seems that I got further in any case and maybe I am on to something...

Do I log in as root maybe?
