Description of problem:
During installation I selected only the patterns "General Purpose Desktop" and "KDE Desktop". After the installation finished the system boots but nothing changes anymore after the message "Starting crond:".

After switching to another vt I checked the installed packages and the xserver package xorg-x11-server-Xorg didn't get installed. My guess is that's the problem

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6-snap2 Workstation

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. select only patterns "General Purpose Desktop" and "KDE Desktop" during installation
Actual results:
xorg-x11-server-Xorg seems to be missing in the installed system

Expected results:
working desktop

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2010-05-07 13:54:33 UTC
Nothing in either of these groups depends upon the X server being installed.  We're already talking about this in terms of gdm, so I'm reassigning to them as they are aware of the problem.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2010-05-07 17:43:33 UTC
This is no different than RHEL 5 or Fedora. The X server is part of a different install group.
