Description Michael Lunnay 2000-10-12 21:17:35 EDT
when using the text mode installer and decied to remove packages after the 
installer has calculated dependencies, it never re-evaluates the 
dependencies. This causes a problem if you decied to remove a package, 
when you again continue form the package selection screen, the same 
dependencies are shown, even if all of the packages have been de-selected.
As an example, I develope SDL using the latest version from source and 
chose not to install it, but I had selected to install the multimedia 
packages. This included the smpeg library, which has SDL as a dependency. 
When I went back and removed smpeg (and other packages related to SDL), I 
was still told that the SDL library was required.
