Description Jens Petersen 2005-04-05 15:53:04 UTC
Description of problem:
A default anaconda install of rawhide is pulling in lots (all?) language
support by default, which is surely more than most users need.  Perhaps
all fonts I could understand, but surely most users don't need all the Oo.o
langpacks, all the translated manpages or aspell dictionaries.

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do default install of fc/devel in English or Japanese say.
Actual results:
Lots of Language Support packages for all kinds of langs get installed.

Expected results:
Only some Language Support packages to be installed by default.

A rewrite of the language support handling is pending.

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2005-04-15 18:41:31 UTC
Please try tomorrow's rawhide and let me know how it works for you.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2005-04-18 07:23:52 UTC
Seems to have been working for a while now, thanks.
