Description Tomas Mraz 2005-02-09 03:14:27 EST
As it's generally good from security point of view to have as little as possible
running services on freshly installed system we should switch off by default all
networking daemons - namely sshd. However when doing remote install using vnc it
it is necessary to have it running after install to be able to further manage
the machine.

This means there has to be a possibility to enable sshd (and possibly other)
daemons in the anaconda. This could be displayed only in expert install.

'expert' installs don't exist.  They've been nothing more than a figment of
people's imagination for about 2 or 3 years now.

Since packages don't provide any way to tell which have services and which
don't, there's no way to show this in anaconda other than a) maintained list in
anaconda b) side list.  Both of these can be shown as _not_ being maintainable.
 Which means you have to do it after packages are installed.  Which means in
firstboot.  Which is too late for the case of vnc installs as well as platforms
such as s390, iSeries, etc.
