Description Unknown 2002-12-29 14:11:17 UTC
The PDF installation manual (I am referring to the german language version

The script does in fact provide a way to install without the 
"Graphical User Interface" but still does require an X11 server 
beign present.  The script is meant to allow non-interactive 
installation for sys admins and users who do not need or want to 
install things via full interaction via menus, buttons,etc 
If you want to install a network version and do not have graphical 
display hardware on the machine, simply launch Xvfb (see man Xvfb) 
A complete rpm based installation method is being worked on but 
until that becomes available, running Xvfb and using the install 
script will work fine.
