Description Justin Jaynes 2004-03-19 18:39:54 UTC
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.
