Description Jeff MacDonald 2006-03-28 19:07:25 UTC
Description of problem:
a friend of mine is installing fc5 on a server where printing support is not
needed (he doesn't have any printers). when he tried to remove cups, amongst the
big list of things being removed was gdm, which naturally is required to get the
default setup of X to work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use gui or yum to remove cups
2. dependency chain is displayed, accept them for removal
3. gdm gets removed, so X will not start (or restart)
Actual results:
X will not start

Expected results:
X should start and operate as normal except it should not be possible to print
