In general, we recommend installing eCosPro from within your graphical desktop environment (GNOME or KDE), but installation is also possible from a text-only console or remote shell, as illustrated in Figure 4-16. The installation steps are very similar to the graphical installation, with the primary installer spawning the installers of dependent components if they are not already installed. To perform a console installation, run the primary installer with the additional parameters -mode console. Component installers may also be individually executed if you are upgrading specific components of the eCosPro Developer's Kit.
Note: The Console installation method is not available for Windows hosts.
