Description Michael Wardle 2003-01-13 15:32:14 UTC
Description of problem:
I just performed a "Desktop" class install of Red Hat Linux 8.0.92 and
added a couple extra packages under the desktop and development categories
as well as checked the windows connectivity category to get samba installed.
I was surprised to see that the news daemon, innd, had also been installed.

How reproducible:
Haven't tried.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform a Desktop class installation of Red Hat Linux
2. Add some packages from the KDE, Windows Server, Development,
   and Graphical Internet groups
Actual results:
innd is installed.

Expected results:
innd is not installed as I had not specified the "news server" group or
anything else obviously related to a news server.

Additional info:
rpm -q --whatdepends inn returns an error (it seems the --whatdepends flag
is gone).

I am unable to start the graphical package manager to confirm which groups
I selected.

Comment 1 Michael Wardle 2003-01-13 16:21:14 UTC
rpm --query --whatrequires inn lists no packages, so it will probably not have
been installed as a dependency.  Perhaps it's somehow related to the graphical
internet category.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-13 21:42:41 UTC
This is a comps of packaging issue.

Comment 3 Tim Powers 2003-01-13 22:24:18 UTC
It's not a comps issue, the only package which requires inn is inn-devel (you
can see this by running "rpm -q --redhatrequires inn")

I have performed a default desktop GNOME/KDE install and inn is not installed.

Perhaps you inadvertantly selected inn. If you are able to reproduce this please
reopen the bug.
