Installing Fedora 25 for PPC64 in text mode

asked 2016-11-24 06:39:50 -0500

I'm trying to install Fedora 25 for PPC64 (i.e. big endian) on qemu. The graphic installation appears to hang.

Documentation says I should type "linux text" at yaboot prompt. I can locate such a prompt in Fedora 19 installer boot flow but not in Fedora 25 boot flow. Forcing text by running qemu with -nographic does not work, because anaconda's text interactivity seems to fail in that case.

So how do I get to textual anaconda with Fedora 25 install media while letting qemu tell the installer that a graphics adapter exists?

I ended up working around this by installing Fedora 19 and upgrading to 25 using yum.
