yum redhat login not complete.
Comment 3 stuart hill 2012-07-20 07:33:34 EDT
Solution: yum repository not included.
Comment 4 James Antill 2012-08-02 17:19:39 EDT
 The group "X-WINDOWS-SYSTEM" isn't in my RHEL-6 repos. that I can see. Can you give "yum group info -v" output for it etc. Also actual yum output for what you are seeing on install would help a lot.

 I maybe know of the UI bug you might be hitting ... but I'm far from sure.
Comment 7 James Antill 2013-04-09 17:45:19 EDT
Still need info.
Comment 8 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-14 00:52:48 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

As there seems to be no new information on this bug, I'm closing it.
