Re: RFE: Ability To Edit Files At End of Installation Process

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I'm installing Fedora a second time around (on hdb in a 2-drive system) to double-check my claim. It is at the "installing packages" panel right now and so far, I have been able to use CTRL-ALT-F2 to get at virtual console #2 during the installation process. Using the left-side keys CTRL-ALT-F7 gets one back to the graphical panel.

I'm going to wait till the install completes because I'm sure that I tried to get into the virtual console after packages had been installed to the other drive on this system, but before quitting the installer, and couldn't access it. As a result I couldn't edit /etc/fstab. I want to be able to edit files just before the first boot of a freshly installed system.

Huh?? Is this true?? It was in test 3. I used it. Has it been rm'd from FC1??
I have not done any installs of FC1 from scratch yet. I f thei is true why was it rm'd??

You can still go to F2 or whatever and go to /mnt/sysimage (sp?) and do
some editing before the initial boot after install.

Not sure on the upgrading/adding packages part though.
