Anaconda GUI Running On A Guru-ARMv5

Well here’s a possible beginning, Fedora’s official Anaconda installer running in GUI mode off a “anything-but-fast” ARMv5 F17 Guruplug!

Note: I told the internals of Anaconda to not partition or install any system/bootloader information onto the system as most ARM devices come pre-installed already.

Note: Here were the setup details in case you wanted to try and replicate my findings

# mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/root
# wget ''
# tar -xjvf rootfs-f17-sfp-alpha1.tar.bz2 -C /mnt/root
# echo install a guru kernel image here
# umount /mnt/root

# /etc/rc.d/rc.local
date 1010102012
hostname "guru-`uname -m`"

# /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

# yum install -y xorg-x11-xauth
# yum install -y anaconda
# rpm -e anaconda
# wget ''
# rpm -i anaconda-armv5tel.rpm

# echo now on another computer
# ssh -CX [email protected]
# anaconda

Note: Anaconda may hang if your device does not have working Internet access pre-configured with NetworkManager ahead of time before the install starts. Also, if you see this error below, it seems to be safe to click thru it and continue on with the install process.
