Description David Lehman 2005-05-20 23:58:41 UTC
Description of problem: When specifying packages by name to be excluded in %packages (eg: '-mozilla') anaconda only excludes the primary arch package. For example, if you specify the following lines on x86_64: -mozilla -mozilla-nss -mozilla-nspr you will end up with i386 mozilla packages, but not x86_64. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-22.214.171.124-1.RHEL How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. select @Everything on an x86_64, then manually deselect mozilla-* (as above) 2. run the install and reboot 3. check for mozilla packages on the system Actual results: Primary arch mozilla packages were successfully excluded, but compat arch pkgs are still there Expected results: No mozilla packages whatsoever should be on the system Additional info: I realize this is almost debatable semantically, but not quite IMHO; If someone says "I want mozilla" on a multilib system that doesn't imply they want it in all available arches. OTOH if they say "I don't want mozilla" on the same system they surely mean just that, which means no mozilla packages of any arch.
