Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189634
Installation is not as clean as prior editions.
Last modified: 2008-04-24 10:56:16 EDT
Description of problem:
INstallation options do not "stick" in text based mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download FC5 from mirrors. Check SHA, burn to CD, check CD with FC5 cd media
2.unselect everything- every package. Install webserver (all options), MySQL
(all but devl), text based net tools, and that is it.
3. Upon install- X.org is installed, nmap, etc.
Installation is not as clean as prior editions. No help (concerning what the
package is - yes sometimes even I forget with the thousands of packages).
Packages that are not intended to be installed are installed.
The packages that were selected should be installed, packages that were not
selected should not be installed, and dep check should give a chance to go back
