Description Jerry Vonau 2005-05-24 06:30:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 95)

Description of problem:
The only rpm that requires "which" is "xinitrc", Fedora doesn't list "which" in the /base/comps.xml, but the rpm is available. In short, if you didn't install X, "which" is not installed, without being in the comps.xml you don't have an option to add it at install time. You could run rpm/up2date/yum/apt later to install it, but it should be listed as an option at install time. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. don't slect X during install.
2. try to add "which" during install

Actual Results:  not found

Expected Results:  should be listed somewhere, as available to install.

Additional info:

"which" is not listed in any group. Maybe add it to the base group as optional and make base viewable. Maybe a misc group for these kind of packages that are not part of either core or base groups, but other packages require them.

Comment 1 Elliot Lee 2005-06-10 17:33:22 UTC
It appears as if 'which' is already part of the 'base' group in FC4.
