Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 118744
Lost Features in Fedora Core 1 Anaconda
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:38 EST
Description of problem:
In RedHat (all later versions) Anaconda allowed users to select
package groups to install, and then they could specify additional
individual packages add or remove. Now in Fedora, users can only
pick groups of packages to install. There are packages I would like
to install from the Fedora CD's at the time of OS install, and there
are a few I want to stop from installing. I can't do that anymore.
It is more time consuming and aggrevating to use RPM command line
(because the GUI RPM installer does not allow individual package
selection EITHER!) to install (and remove) all of these packages each
time I reload my OS. PLEASE include individual package selection
with descriptions of the packages as it used to be available on Red
Hat. I love the Fedora Project. Keep up the excellent work.
Also, the option to start without graphical logon has dissappeared.
Another very time saving feature. I hate having to edit my default
runlevel when before I could just un-check a little box at install
time. Please add this back in!
Thank you for taking suggestions from end users. It makes Linux the
Operating System of my choice. Great work!
Not a bug... the post-install tool will be getting this once I get
enough round 'tuits, but it's not coming back into anaconda proper.
