Description Orion Poplawski 2008-07-16 16:29:45 UTC
Description of problem:

Doing text kickstart installs.  Today I got a prompt to set up VNC.  I think if
"vnc" is absent from the kickstart file you should not be asked (or perhaps add
a "novnc" option).

I entered a password into the fields, but apparently it did not take:
