Description of problem:
The Redhat installer allowed the selection if individual packages.
Thus, a normal user would install default groups, but a power
user/system administrator would install only the minimal and then
refine the selection by choosing individual packages.The "good"
behaviour would show in the individual packages screen the packages
selected at the previous (group selection) screen, and then allow to
add/remove rpms. The Fedora installer is not showing the "Select
individual packages" option, so this tuning of the system is not
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot Fedora CD
2.Step through the installation
3.Look at the "Select what to install" screen
Actual Results: There is no "select individual packages"
Expected Results: Select "Minimal install", "Select individual
packages", tune my installation to my specific needs, check for
dependencies (normally I select what I need - programs and devel - ,
and let the installer add the required libraries and other
This was not rewritten intentionally after a rewrite of some of the
backend package handling code. The installer will get you a basic
system up and running after which you can tweak the full package list
as you want to. Unfortunately, the bit to get the invididual package
selection in redhat-config-packages didn't quite happen this time
around, hopefully for next time.
