Where's the bug for the broken text installer? I'm pretty sure that 'linux video=vesa' still works too, to force the vesa driver, which according to the reporter does give some gui support.

It's 'linux xdriver=vesa'[1]

Thanks for the correct entry to run in order to select the desired driver. I tried the command and was able to upgrade an installation with an MGA G200 card. Of course, just pressing enter and proceeding with the MGA is more desirable.

This option should be added to the release notes I suppose.

Drivers are a more complex issue. I'm not opposed to binary only
drivers, providing its easy to tell they are there and dump all bug
reports about them.
Freedom generally includes the right to give up freedom. I'll tell
people its a bad idea but once they get caught, well it was their right
to do so...
