Description Paul Flinders 2000-07-25 07:00:08 EDT
The %packages section of a kickstart config file
only has syntax for adding packages, not removing
them

I know that sounds odd at first but it would be
useful to be able to say something like

%packages
@ GNOME Workstation
-jade

To have the standard "GNOME Workstation" install
but without jade (or some other small number of
packages).

The work around is to remove the package in the
post install script but including it only to remove
it lengthens the install (which is significant if
you have a lot of machines to do).
