Description Karl Berry 1998-11-30 11:28:09 UTC
I'd like to suggest having an option to omit X configuration
at the time of the initial install.  In many cases I want to
install the X support packages, but not actually set up X
itself until later -- sometimes because I'm installing a
server that I'm never going to run X on anyway, sometimes
because I have weird hardware you don't support yet, and I
have to install a different server later.

Can we get a component option in "expert" to not run Xconfigurator?
This seems reasonable, AFAICT.  What do you think?

Comment 2 Matt Wilson 1999-03-26 02:21:59 UTC
Unselect the Xconfigurator package in indiv. package selection.
