Description jeld 1999-11-18 18:30:40 UTC
1. When KDE workstation is installed, Gnome is a choice in kdm, but gmc is
not installed and half the other vital Gnome related stuff is not
installed. Either the choice should not be there, or full Gnome should be
installed as well as KDE.
2. During custom installation, if "Select individual packages" is checked
( whatever the choice of package sets was ) a lot of vital packages are
unchecked. Like setup, grep, awk, file-utils, base, etc etc etc. One would
expect that if I chose KDE desktop, Printer support and Dial Up
workstation, then checked "Select Individual..." that I already have most
of the stuff I want checked for installation, and I can only add/remove a
few packages here and there to suite my needs. As the case is I have to go
through all the packages checking a lot of stuff that was supposed to be
checked as it is.
3. During Custom install ( this is true for installers since 5.0 ) if I
choose a set of options ( like Gnome Desktop or something ) then go
to "Select individual packages" then go back and change my selection ( say
to KDE desktop ) and go back to "select individual" the selection doesn't
reflect the changes. Also if I go to "select individual" then go back and
next again without changing anything, whatever selections I made in
package list are cleared in favour of some default.
