this one-liner should make installation in cmdline possible for systems with little RAM. Currently if little RAM is detected, anaconda changes to textmode. Running in cmdmode should also be possible. This patch is completely untested for now, but please verify.  Jul 20, 2008, 1:39 PM Niels de Vos

when running anaconda (kickstart) over a serial linedisplay (two line output device) loadkeys does not function. The output of anaconda is writing to /dev/console, which is achieved by kernel parameter "console=ttyS1". If user input is needed (ks.cfg-%pre) the layout of the keyboard does not match the settings in ks.cfg. Obviously the loadkeys of anaconda does not function correctly if the output is a serial port. This patch fixes this by not using /dev/console, but /dev/tty0 (the master-tty).  Jul 20, 2008, 1:39 PM Niels de Vos

In include/linux/serio.h two different define-series are documented as "Serio types". However the second series contains defines for the different protocols.

[PATCH] linux/fs.h: include linux/path.h In linux/fs.h 'struct path' is being used. Therefore linux/path.h should be included. Signed-off-by: Niels de Vos <niels.devos@wincor-nixdorf.com>   1k v. 2 Jul 21, 2008, 7:19 AM Niels de Vos

The IO port range requested by parport_pc.c:sio_ite_8872_probe is too small. The IO-ports of ttyS1 (0x2f8) will be missconfigured by the ITE-chip. The ITE starts looking for the chip a 0x2a0. An IO-portrange of 32 will not overwrite the ports of ttyS1. Therefore register 0x60 should be written with 0xe5000000, enabling the ITE and setting IO-portsize to 32 bytes.
