Description Jeff Burrell 2006-09-12 15:52:42 UTC
Description of problem:
In installing the desktop client version for x86-64, I selected every option for
additional software, except web server. When I look at the screen contents on VT
#3(ctrl-alt-F3), I see lots and lots of warnings about dependency for a lot of
different rpms.

It also takes more than a minute before the "next" key is enabled.

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

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use x86-64 client install DVD
2. Install using "D" for Desktop client
3. Select first two categories of software(window manager & development?), but
don't select "web server"
4. Select every optional component under both selected categories
5. Select "next"
6. ctrl-alt-F3 to view VT3's contents
Actual results: many, many dependancy warnings

Expected results: No dependency warnings

Additional info:

Comment 1 Jeff Burrell 2006-09-12 16:48:26 UTC
Here are a couple of additions/corrections to "Steps to Reproduce":

In step #3, I selected the categories "Office & Productivity" & "Software

After #3, I selected "customize now" and proceeded to select all of the
components(step #4) listed for each of the first 5
options(Desktop/Applications/Development/Servers/BaseSystem) but added nothing
in "Languages".

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2006-09-12 18:06:53 UTC
Please post an example of the sorts of messages you are seeing, as there are a
variety of dependancy messages that can appear in the logs.

Comment 3 Jeff Burrell 2006-09-12 18:28:52 UTC
Unless there's a log somewhere which captures messages posted prior to 
installation, which I doubt there is, there's no good way to capture messages 
like this other than to manual copy them down. 

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-12 18:32:07 UTC
There's /tmp/anaconda.log at install-time which gets copied to
/var/log/anaconda.log on the installed system.

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-12 18:51:23 UTC
Packages that are dep required are only present in the Workstation variant.

Comment 8 Jay Turner 2006-09-20 19:03:22 UTC
Need to have clean rpm verifies (i.e. no missing deps)  QE ack for B2.  See
section 9c of the release criteria.
