Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 184327
pirut not defaulting to installed packages
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
I had an install with all Default package groupings ( bar visualisation ) on,
once I logged in as root ( I didn't get the Bug 183542 issue ) and ran
Add/Remove Packages to customise my install, gnome/X11 were turned off & I
didn't realise it, so they were removed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Reproduced twice, required an install from scratch
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Complete Install ( not upgrade )
2. Run Add/Remove Software ( as root )
Pup would have the settings selected on installation as defaults.
Was not easy to confirm FC5 was using gdm, once I did this was easy enough to
work out what had happened.
Actually pirut & not pup - Nigel
I'm not reproducing this with current trees. Are you still seeing it?
One thing that also helps if this _can_ be hit is that we give more information
about what's going to be installed/removed before actually doing it.
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
