Re: Virtual consoles, Anaconda and the Macs



Pls, only to the list. I'm subscribed, else couldn't send to it. off-list replies get filtered wrongly (I use list-id), and mailman doesn't send me the list's copy if you do cc.

It's before it has loaded stage2
Here's the Apache log:

I don't see that any of the missing files matters.




Fedora project docs are pretty quiet on PPC.
RHEL talks about iSeries, pSeries etc and says to use combinations with the ALT key.

I don't have an ALT key, and the command and option keys don't work in its place.


You do the option key is equivalent, on my iBook it's even labeled with
alt.

Perhaps it's just that I'm not far enough in to have alternate vcs.


You may need to use fn to get at the function keys, is this in X or
before hand?  If it's in X you'd have to use Ctrl-Option like with
Ctrl-Alt in X.

Try option + fn + F3

I'll confirm on my iMac when I get in.
