Description Tom O'Brien 2003-12-05 14:57:56 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
When selecting packages in anaconda, there is an option to select the 
MySQL database, which says that the database server will be installed.

When the installation is complete, the mysql client packages are 
installed, but the mysql-server package is not installed.

The installer is misleading, and it is difficult to get the MySQL 
package from the Red Hat Network as well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Shipping version with 3.0 ES edition

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Anaconda installer
2. Select MySQL packages in package selection dialog
3. Complete install
4. Attempt to use MySQL database--it isn't installed.

Actual Results:  No database server is installed.

Expected Results:  From the on-line information in the anaconda 
screens I would expect mysql-server to be installed.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-12-10 06:59:50 UTC
The description was explicitly changed to state "This package group
contains packages useful for use with MySQL." to explicitly not
mention the server.
