Ambiguity on Options - Installation Screen for Package/Software Selection
Last modified: 2013-01-10 00:56:23 EST
Description of problem:
On the install screen for Packages(Software), there are several "sets" of software to choose from: 'Graphical Desktop', 'Software Development', etc.
With Fedora 13 these selections have changed from 'checkboxes' (multiple selection) to 'radioboxes' (single selection), so one can't make multiple selections there.
The issues/uncertainty is, if a user selects 'Software Development', the 'Graphical Desktop' is unselected... It seems mainstream users would want both, without having to 'trudge' through further customizations via 'customize now'..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Distribution, Fedora 13, Beta
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use ISO image 'Fedora-13-Beta-i386-netinst.iso' to install Fedora 13.
2. Select through the various options (timezone, drive layout, etc, etc.)
3. Upon entering the Software/Package selection screen, the options presented seem 'ambiguous'. Can't someone selecting 'Graphical Desktop' also select 'Software Development' without more effort ('customize now', etc.).
User can only select 'Graphical Desktop', 'Software Development', or one of the other options. A user cannot select 'multiple' package sets without further customizations.
A user ideally should be able to select 'Graphical Desktop' and 'Software Development', etc.
