Description of problem:
deselect and select changes packages installed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run redhat-config-packages from menu
2.deselect "Mail Server" by clicking on check mark
3.reselect "Mail Server" by clicking on check mark
4.packages change from [1/7] to [3/7]
Actual Results: deselect and select changes packages installed
Expected Results: deselect and select should not change packages installed
same behavior on other components groups ... redhat-config-packages should only
select packages presently installed when selecting a component group
This is the expected behavior even if not the most intuitive in the world.
Deselecting it marks everything for removal and selecting it again just returns
it to the "defaults" state instead of the "what you had installed" state. May
revisit for a future release
Quick fix option:
Add text in main window that clarifies that the check box action "adds default
or removes installed component packages".
Better fix option:
Change the check box to a button and label it "defaults" and change the action
to only select the default component packages.
Full fix option:
Fix as above and add a second button labeled "remove" and have it unselect all
Added functionality fix option:
Fix as above and add a third button labeled "installed" and have it select all
the presently installed component packages.
