This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
Component changed to the Installation Guide.
Please see also the issue about add-on repos what need s to be properly documented:
*** Bug 548248 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Description of minimal installation expanded in "9.17. Package Group Selection" in build 0-67 onwards:
This option provides only the packages essential to run Red Hat Enterprise Linux. A minimal installation provides the basis for a single-purpose server or desktop appliance and maximizes performance and security on such an installation."
Also use of --nobase now refers to minimal installation by name in "32.5. Package Selection":
Do not install the @Base group. Use this option to perform a minimal installation, for example, for a single-purpose server or desktop appliance."
I still need to document add-on repos.
Adding repos documented in build 0-68 -- "9.17.1. Installing from Additional Repositories"
Where can I find the latest build of Installation Docs please?
Thanks, the changes seem OK to me.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
