Description Wade Bowmer 2006-07-31 23:14:54 EDT
Description of problem:

Deselecting a Graphical Workstation still setup X and a display manager in 
defiance of my selection.

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


How reproducible:

* Boot the CD.
* Select the Text mode installer
* When offered to select product categories, deselect X Window System and 
anything else that obviously offers graphical tools (GNOME, KDE, ...).
Actual results:

The boot screen loads a display manager.

Expected results:

The boot screen gives me a text login prompt.

X-related components can still be pulled in if they are dependencies of other
packages that are selected.  Assuming you are still seeing this problem, can you
please attach /var/log/anaconda.log from your installed system?  What packages
are you installing that might possibly require X packages?
