Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 988328
RFE: some packages cannot be excluded using a kickstart file
Last modified: 2014-09-01 09:59:10 EDT
Description of problem:
The installer always installs some packages, so excluding them in a kickstart file has no effect.
Bug 988233 is from a user who wanted to remove "firewalld" from his install, yet it was installed anyway. The kickstart documentation does not explain why.
A workaround might be to use the post-installation section of the kickstart file to remove some packages.
Bug 988233 - Anaconda does not exclude certain packages specified in the kickstart configuration
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
15.5. Package Selection
Thanks for pointing this out Steve, I'll take a look at it.
