| I think I'll face another problem. The text installation is started
| when a Braille display is detected but if this isn't the case how is
| one who can't see the screen suppose to reach this?
if by "text installation" you mean using a serial
console (which I _guess_ is yer Braille unit?), I
have no idea.
if by "text installation" you mean the curses-based
installer, rather than the X11 one (which presumably
only runs on the VDU?), then a partial answer from
the SUSE 9.1 manual is (paraphrased):
Within 10 seconds, use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select
"Manual Installation" to prevent the X Installer from
starting. Then in the "Boot Options", enter "textmode=1".
obviously, that is not very satisfactory, and does
not directly address your concern. just a tidbit
that _might_ be helpful?
I tried searching the installed SUSE 9.1 manuals on
my system for relevant information, but came up with
a complete blank. ;-( this surprises me, given
the claims on the ILAG ;-) that SUSE does support
some Braille units for installation?
two obvious questions: does Google™ find anything?
and what about the on-line SUSE forums/help/lists?
