Description of problem:
There is no option in the installer to install the extra postgresql packages. At
the very minimum they should be installable in SQL Database Server Package details.
These packages include:
... and a bunch more.
Do a rpm -qa | grep postgresql on Disk2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run System Settings>Add/Remove Applications
2. Select Details in the SQL Database Server Group
3. They are nowhere to be found except grepping Disk2 for them
Actual Results: They are nowhere to be found.
Expected Results: The packages should show up in extra packages to be installed.
These packages Don't fit nicely into either SQL Database Server, or Development,
but really should be selectable from somewhere. I would think that they should
at least appear in SQL Database Server.
Reassigning to comps, which controls what is visible in each group.
postgresql-server brings in the base postgresql package.
mx seems ancillary to postgres.
mx is a dependency on postgresql-python. The main issue is not that any
particular item is ancillary to another. The issue is that there is no way to
install the ancillary packages through Add/Remove Applications. The desire is to
add those packages so they can be installed.
This looks better looking at the current FC3 devel comps file.
