Description Michael Meissner 2003-11-18 17:14:04 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1)

Description of problem:
Unlike the Red Hat installation system (going back to Red Hat Linux 3
or 4), the Fedora system seems to have dropped the option for
selecting individual packages, either by a menu choice item or by
selecting the "Everything" option and then deselecting individual
packages.  In particular, there are packages like gkrellm that are not
selected by any other menu item, and I would like to select these
packages during the initial installation like I have in Red Hat releases.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do an initial load of the system
2. Try to modify which packages are selected
3. No such option

Actual Results:  The option isn't present, so I can't use it.

Expected Results:  I should be able to add any package at initial
installation time.

It also seems that the ability to approve or disapprove
dependency-added packages is gone.  

I suppose this is a side effect of being user friendly but I know that
power users would appreciate the option.

When I'm doing a desktop installation I want all of the dependencies
automatically resolved, however on a server I want more control.  For
instance, on a server install if you do not select X or GNOME to be
installed but leave one of the gui admin apps selected you will get X
and GNOME installed for you without any sort of notification.
