How to install Fedora with VNC

I follow the steps from https://anaconda-installer.readthedoc...

I add "inst.vnc" to the boot options but all goes without VNC command being taken into account.

I can see from Ctrl+Alt+F2 / Root that the VNC command exists, through dmesg output. But nothing else happens, GNOME is still started.

Is there something more to do? Or it's been removed from Fedora installer?

Turns out using net-install image instead of the full live-cd image to boot up makes things work.

It is probably obvious for people knowing what's going on behind the curtains, but it might be a good thing to mention it in the docs :)

Also, had to use vncconnectConnect mode from

Direct mode anaconda didn't work (no specific error message seen, didn't investigate as it works with vncconnect but probable cause is a firewall on my network).
