    3. Hi,

      Is it possible to install CentOS 6 using the old, classic non-grapical interface? (The one you see before entering the URL)

      Thanks for a great post!

      • Hi Simon,

        Graphical installation is recommended way to install CentOS 6 and RHEL 6. Text mode installation is possible to use if you do not have graphical display. You could use text mode if you install CentOS 6 over a VNC connection, but in this case anaconda detects it automatically and ask your confirmation to use text mode. Options during text mode installation are limited.

        This information is derived from the Red Hat 6 documentation.

    5. Instructions were perfect. I previously had lots of problems with netinstall on a VirtualBox VM, but following your instructions, I was able to get Centos6 installed perfectly using the 32-bit images. For some reason, VirtualBox or NetInstall, trying to get 64-bit images installed failed with error saying it was not supported so I tried 32-bit and it worked fine.

    6. I can’t get past step 3.7 – Retrieving install image. I tried automatic and manual network/proxy settings. Installer shows an error that the image URL can’t be reached. I have verified that all the settings and URL are correct. This is on a Dell PowerEdge R410.

      The reason I tried the network install was for step 3.19 Customize Package Selection. I don’t see that option in the LiveCD installation. Are you aware of any other installer that gives you the custom package selection option?

      • Hi julian,

        Is it downloading install image at all?

        You could try old school CentOS DVD install media (not LiveDVD). It should work just like Netinstall, without network connection. All packages may not be available, but they can always installed later… :)

    7. I did a NetIstall of CentOS just now! I had problems the same as julian, that was for the 6.2 version. 6.0 on the other hand went ok-ish, but I found that the mirror.centos.org (to whatever it was redirected) wasn’t responding properly at times! I had around 20 errors in the Graphical sections 3.20 and 3.21 but I didn’t quit, I RETRIED! and it finaly worked for me!
      Also, playing around with other console on ALT+F2 (or CTRL+ALT+F2 from the graphical portion of the setup) you already have a pretty much working Linux box, altough its still being installed.

      I guess next time when I install a server without a DVD drive I will use a basic CD, since the Fujitsu-Siemens I just installed does not have a DVD drive and I am all out on blank CDs.

      BTW: Very good tutorial! :)

      • Hi George,

        Nice to see you here and thanks for posting.

        I have had similar problems occasionally, but yes retrying is right way… :) I’m not entirely sure that this is caused by Anaconda or mirrors.

    8. Hi,
      I’m new to Linux. I installed Centos 6.2 on Dell PE410. Prior to item 4.2 everything went as it is written in your manual. But after rebooting the system goes into text mode. I would be very grateful if you tell me what to do to go to graphic mode.

      • Sounds nice setup! :)

        But yes about …mdadm exited with status 127… error. I found some discussion about it, from here. Looks like a problem is with Anaconda (installer) and ext4 file system, but nothing fatal, if your system boots and run.

        • It’s so )))
          I also hope that if Linux installed, then it will work. I am very grateful for your help.
          Thanks a lot!

    10. […] Originally Posted by johnsfine I haven't installed Centos in a while, so I'm not sure the following is still true, but when I last installed it, that required a good internet connection (better than I have at home) to download the .iso file for the DVD (using multiple CD's for install makes it harder), then the install seems to override most of what is on the DVD by massive download from the repositories. So compared to Mepis, Ubuntu and Debian installs I've done, a Centos install needs a better internet connection (or a lot of time). So that might argue against my primary recommendation that Centos is best. CentOS has a "netinstall" option that downloads only what you need, and the latest version too: http://www.if-not-true-then-false.co…-installation/ […]

    14. Hi,

      I am trying to install Centos on a Pentium3 500. Which is working. However, I get the non graphical installer. Which is no problem. But I can’t do any customizing. The install does a default disk-layout and installs default packages, I am not sure which packages. It is 208 packs. But I want the desktop environment. Of course I can add packages ad groups later. But isn’t there a way to do this during the installation? I had a working box, but every time I bumped into packages I forgot to install.

      Best Regards,
