I just found a curious bug(?) in the Anaconda installer. i have a device with a small screen (can’t change this) so the graphic installer can’t be used, so i decide to use the
inst.text kernel parameter to enable VNC during installation. This works great, but on the installed System, GDM seems to be disabled, as it puts me only to text console - with no User account at all.
So I’m going on with a second try: After installing, don’t reboot, chrooted to /mnt/sysroot and created a user with
adduser and add them to the wheel group. That has worked, at least i can login now, GDM is just only one Step away. I just enabled it with
sudo systemctl enable --now gdm
GDM has been started successfully, but on next reboot, it won’t launched automatically.
So, there are two things missing after text/vnc-installation:
- An User to log in
- GDM on Startup
at least, VNC Installation should leave GDM Startup enabled.
