Description of problem:
I think that there is a problem with the package management.

After checking package status I am presented with a screen that shows the
packages that have been installed.

The printing support section is unticked and indicates that there are [0/10]
parts installed.

However I know that I have installed cups.

If I now decide to remove cups and all of the extra packages in this section. I
tick printing support and then click on details. I am now presented with all 
extra packages ticked to allow me to install them. I carefully untick these
packages and then choose close.

When I update the add remove packages section the system preparation indicates
that 2 packages are queued for installation and 7 for removal. Show details
reveals that LPRng is to be installed and so is redhat config-printer the 7 to
be removed are appropriate.

I did not want to install LPRng or redhat config-printer.

It looks as though I have to resort to the command line to install and remove

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.use system settings packages
2.select printer support
3.try to install only cups

Actual Results:  it installs LPRng every time

Expected Results:  It should not have installed LPRng

Additional info:

I had to use rpm on the command line to remove LPRng

Printing support is required for X, and printing support defaults to the
inclusion of LPRng
