From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-05-18 20:37:10 EDT
postgresql-server brings in the base postgresql package.

mx seems ancillary to postgres.
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-05-18 21:58:31 EDT
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.
