Thank you. I gave these options by appending -x "serial text
console=hvc0" on the command line. Now, I get some text output, but
something is wrong.
I'm using a braile display and BRLTTY to access the screen content.
When Anaconda prompts me to configure TCP/IP, for instance, I can't
see any text, like "IP address", "DHCP" etc. The heading is displayed,
and also the OK button if I tab to it.
I further tried to add "nomodeset nofb console=force-text" as extra
options, but I have the same result. I need a clean 80x25 text
display. Any ideas?
