kickstart postinstall display

Post by sudoyang » 2013/09/27 00:30:42

In a text, headless kick session, does anyone knows how to display output to the text screen? In a text-based but not headless, this works:

echo "display to main screen" > /dev/tty

in headless mode it doesn't seem to work. The output looks like this with nothing echoed from postinstall:
