Description of problem:
During the GUI installer package selection I cannot refuse Bluetooth -- I uncheck it but it rechecks itself; other selections behave in a similar fashion.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC5T2 CD PPC Installer set
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to customize the package selection
2. Packages that are known to not be needed are forced as default
3. Packages are installed whether you choose them or not.
Actual Results: Modem/Dial-up services and Bluetooth (as examples) are installed even though they are not selected during package selection.
Expected Results: Packages which are not selected should not be installed.
Maybe if there were better indications of co-dependencies (possibly similar to the Debian installer) I would them be less confused than I am.
I under stand that the Debian installer provides MORE information than is actually needed to complete an installation -- however FC installation phases have provided substantially less than I personally would like to see.
If you then just try to remove the packages after install, are there things
which require them?
No, the bluez* "set" can be yum removed and no other package depends upon them
-- which is why I am confused as to why they were installed to start with.
I mean it's not like ppc64_utils which has 260+ packages depend upon it.
Can you attach /var/log/anaconda* and /root/install.log?
Here are the installer logs; after a successful build:
Okay, I just tried this with current rawhide (well, rawhide plus a fix for a
thing or two that's actually broken in current rawhide :-) and it seems to be
fixed now. There were definitely some kinks in the UI code in test2 that have
been worked out since then, so this is probably just caught up in those changes.
