I have a autoyast setup where I would like to install a headless server.
The machine starts an Xserver in Stage 1 of the installation process
just fine and installation begins (a monitor is attached but turned off).
After RPM installation and rebooting/kexec into stage 2, starting XDM
fails for some reason. As the machine is supposed to run headless in
console mode anyway, I would not care at all. I even disable XDM
completely later on as it is not needed.
But I seems like the second stage fails to start due to XDM failing.
Instead of fixing the reason for XDM failing, I would like to tell the
*second* stage ahead of time to simply start in console mode.
Is this possible somehow?
I.e.: start stage 1 with X enabled, start stage 2 with X disabled in
The AutoYast configuration options for services is done at the end of
stage 2, which is too late for this case.
Thanks for any suggestions!
