18.3.3. Installation using VNC
Using VNC is recommended for slow or long-distance network connections. To use VNC, disable X11 forwarding in your SSH client prior to connecting to the temporary Linux installation system. The loader will then provide a choice between text-mode and VNC; choose VNC here. Alternatively, provide the
vncvariable and optionally the
vncpasswordvariable in your parameter file (refer to Section 26.4, “VNC and X11 Parameters” for details).
A message on the workstation SSH terminal prompts you to start the VNC client viewer and provides details about the VNC display specifications. Enter the specifications from the SSH terminal into the VNC client viewer and connect to the temporary Linux installation system to begin the installation. Refer to Chapter 31, Installing Through VNC for details.
