Pulling in extra comps files in Anaconda clobbers some comps settings
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
After adding the 'extras' repository during a network install of F7t4, going
into the package customization screen you will notice that most of the default
package groups are not checked (i.e. no base-x, no gnome-desktop, etc.)
Basically, it seems that if you add Extras, you need to go into the package
customization screen and re-enable all the stuff that's not listed in extras'
Everything seems to install normally if you don't go into the package
customization screen, though.
I don't think this is a comps bug, but an anaconda bug. Anaconda (pirut) should
be showing the merger of the two (or more) comps files.
This is messy, but not a default-install type thing, so it's not a release blocker.
It is kind of nasty, though - drops a whole bunch of packages if you enable
extra repos. Will there be any movement on this for F7?
This actually looks like it's even just a display problem; the packages are
getting installed even though the groups aren't showing up as selected. And
things look right if there aren't overlapping group names (eg, my sparkle motion
Still going to try to get to the bottom of it as it's bound to cause confusion
