inn news daemon installed in desktop installation
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
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.
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
innd is installed.
innd is not installed as I had not specified the "news server" group or
anything else obviously related to a news server.

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
This is a comps of packaging issue.
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.
