Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 185231
Fedora Core 5 Release notes - select /deselect all option should be added to edition
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:39:46 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to install a system using the new installer which is now divided in
groups, I found selecting each optional package one at a time to be time
consuming and easily prone to oversight for selecting optional packages.
It was revealed through filing another bug report that right clicking on the
group will allow selection or allow you to not select all of the subpackages
within the notes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run installer, look for obvious interface to allow for selecting or not
selecting optional packages within group. Notice no obvious selection method.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run installer
2. Select Groups for packages
3. Select optional packages from groups selected
Time consuming and prone to error from individual selection, one at a time.
The option not being obvious needs mentioned in the release notes to aid those
installing a system.
Easier method to select all optional packages within a group.
There were threads related to "Everything Installations". This is not for
everything but to aid in allowing quicker and more complete installations.
This change is in the current release notes on the Wiki and should make it to
the Web version of the release notes.
FYI, Paul put the content here:
This is the content source that gets converted into the actual release notes.
The current Wiki is going to generate the Web-published release notes for Fedora
I bring this up because the Wiki is available for contributions, if you find
yourself with more release notes in the future. Thanks again!
