Chris Dutrow asked:
I apologize if this is a monumentally stupid question:
Is there a way to install Centos on a computer without a video card?
Just bought a computer that will only be used with an SSH connection, however, I need to get Centos on to it before that is even possible.
Is there a way to do this over LAN, use some sort of USB to VGA adapter, some other solution, or do I need to buy a video card just for this circumstance?
This is the mother board: ASRock 970 PRO3 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Thanks so much!
You can either have the installation process start a VNC server which you can connect to, or you can have it connect to a listening VNC client on your computer.
At the boot prompt, to start a VNC server, enter:
linux vnc vncpassword=abc123
The server’s IP address and port to connect to will be displayed on screen.
To connect to a remote listener, enter:
linux vnc vncpassword=abc123 vncconnect=192.0.2.148:5900
In either case you’ll temporarily need to connect a keyboard and monitor to enter the connection information.
And…that’s not a server motherboard.
