Description Dave Jones 2008-03-31 19:46:56 EDT
the docs, and the wiki for the kickstart feature mention the option --nodefaults
Passing this to %packages causes anaconda to abort with 'no such option'.
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2008-04-01 11:23:34 EDT
--nodefaults is an option to a group itself, not to the %packages header.  It's
kind of awful syntax, but I don't think there's really a more clear way to do
it.  So you'd have something like this:

@gnome-desktop --nodefaults

instead of:

%packages --nodefaults
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2008-04-01 15:55:07 EDT
hrm. that doesn't seem to work either :-/

That gets me a dialog saying that the group that I'm modifying doesn't exist.
Removing the --nodefaults again makes it work.

That's what I get for using a really basic test of whether package groups exist
or not.
