Re: Help with Anaconda changes

It is not an absolute requirement but a very important requirement to have some of the important functionality like VM management, guest consistent backups work. It is also required for better user experience of the guest desktop. There is no known reason for not having it in a VMware VM.

Hope this helps.

Is this package really a requirement to run on vmware? If it is just a 
covenience, I think it makes more sense for it to be selected by whoever 
is doing the install
