An Oracle Installer that automatically switches to Console mode

The WebLogic  installer can switch automatically to console mode.

UPDATE :  However, quickstart.sh still requires an X-display as I discovered after the install completed.

-sh-3.2$ echo $HOME
/newfs/wlogic
-sh-3.2$ ./wls1211_linux32.bin

Unable to instantiate GUI, defaulting to console mode.

Decades ago, when I was writing things that would generally interface with an online user, I insisted on being able to fallback to a console mode, even for programs specifically written for online input. Why? Because either something would happen to blow out the RS-232 multiplexer, or there otherwise weren't enough terminals, and some important thing could still run.

The more things change the more they stay the same. How many times have people asked Oracle for this for the installer? It's so obvious!
