Do a dependency check after video card selection
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:25 EDT
Description of Problem:
In the text mode install, the video card detection screen appears out of
sequence in the middle of package selection.
Steps to Reproduce:
Choose a New Install, select major installation components, opt in to
adjust individual packages. Deliberately select some packages that have a
dependency on some other packages that you haven't selected.
On the next screen, the installer will tell you what video card it
On the subsequent screen, the installer will complain about unresolved
Video card autodetection appears to be out of place. It should happen
either before the business with the package selection is squared away with,
or after everything concerning package selection has been done, but not in
the middle of the process, like that. Very confusing.
We ask because if you have a video card which needs a XFree86 3.x.x we need
to know so we add it to the list of packages to be installed. I will look at
moving it after the dependencies, at least that won't be quite as confusing.
I've moved it now - now need to run dependencies again after selection to be
sure all packages we need for X server are in list to be installed.
Matt would you pretty please look at this for me?
We've handled dependcies as required.
