Description Jason 2006-03-25 22:07:24 UTC
Description of problem:
I install FC5 on Friday.  I told anaconda not to install tomboy, beagle,
gnome-user-share (I don't want httpd installed on my home PC) and a couple of
other packages.  After the install tomboy, beagle, and the others were there.  I
don't it is a dependency problem because I did a rpm -e tomboy and nothing

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
whatever version is in fc5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start an install
2. deselect tomboy and begale and gnome-user-share
3. watch as they get installed
Actual results:
packages I told anaconda NOT to install got installed

Expected results:
tomboy, beagle, gnome-user-share, httpd should NOT have been installed.

Can you provide /root/install.log and /var/log/anaconda.log?

It isn't just the packages you ask anaconda not to install.  Anaconda also
doesn't listen when you ask it to install packages it doesn't install by
default, and the results can be seen immediately after choosing certain packages.

(I'm using text mode due to problems with graphical installation.  This could be
a text mode specific problem.)

For example:

1.) At the point in the installation where you select package groups you would
like installed, highlight the 'Editors' section
2.) Press 'F2' to see the package group details
3.) Deselect a package (I chose 'vim-enhanced', the only selected package)
4.) Select a package (i.e. 'emacs')
5.) Tab to the 'OK' button and hit Enter
6.) Press 'F2' again to review the choices you just made, and note that the
choices have been reset to their defaults

I installed rawhide and the problem seems to have gotten fixed between then and
now.  I am closing the bug.
