Replace _user_ with a valid user name on the target system, _address_ with the target system's address or host name, and _path_ with the path to the directory you wish to save the log files into. For example, if you want to log in as `john` to a system with an IP address of `` and place the log files into the `/home/john/logs/` directory on that system, the command will have the following form:
# scp *log john@
When connecting to the target system for the first time, you may encounter a message similar to the following:
`The authenticity of host ' (' can't be established.`
`ECDSA key fingerprint is a4:60:76:eb:b2:d0:aa:23:af:3d:59:5c:de:bb:c4:42.`
`Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?`
Type `yes` and press kbd:[Enter] to continue. Then, provide a valid password when prompted. The files will start transferring to the specified directory on the target system.
The log files from the installation are now permanently saved on the target system and available for review.
Trouble Beginning the Installation
Problems with Booting into the Graphical Installation
Systems with some video cards have trouble booting into the graphical installation program. If the installation program does not run using its default settings, it attempts to run in a lower resolution mode. If that still fails, the installation program attempts to run in text mode.
There are several possible solutions to display issues, most of which involve specifying custom boot options. For more information, see xref:advanced/Boot_Options.adoc#sect-boot-options-installer[Configuring the Installation System at the Boot Menu].
Use the basic graphics mode
You can attempt to perform the installation using the basic graphics driver. To do this, edit the installation program's boot options and append [option]#inst.xdriver=vesa# at the end of the command line.
Specify the display resolution manually
If the installation program fails to detect your screen resolution, you can override the automatic detection and specify it manually. To do this, append the [option]#inst.resolution=pass:attributes[{blank}]_x_pass:attributes[{blank}]# option at the boot menu, where _x_ is your display's resolution (for example, `1024x768`).
Use an alternate video driver
You can also attempt to specify a custom video driver, overriding the installation program's automatic detection. To specify a driver, use the [option]#inst.xdriver=pass:attributes[{blank}]_x_pass:attributes[{blank}]# option, where _x_ is the device driver you want to use (for example, `nouveau`).
If specifying a custom video driver solves your problem, you should report it as a bug at link:++https://bugzilla.redhat.com++[] under the `anaconda` component. [application]*Anaconda* should be able to detect your hardware automatically and use the appropriate driver without your intervention.
Perform the installation using VNC
If the above options fail, you can use a separate system to access the graphical installation over the network, using the _Virtual Network Computing_ (VNC) protocol. For details on installing using VNC, see xref:advanced/VNC_Installations.adoc#chap-vnc-installations[Installing Using VNC].
