Re: fc5: install everything?


I stayed out of this thread since I started the same
subject awhile back, but I just wanted to reiterate
just one thing...

All of these arguments (everything or minimalist or
whatever) could have easily been resolved if total
flexibility was given in the installation program
in the first place.

For example:

1) Different templates for different configuration
   choices, for exanple, "Typical", "Custom", "MyChoices"

2) All item selection functionality should be given.  For
   example: shift-key for item X through item X+n, Control-Key
   for single-item (de)selections. These used in combination
   with the mouse selections as well.  Then there should be a
   "select all items", "Deselect All Items" so that you
   and select all items and deselect items you dont want
   or "deselect all items" and select items you want.

The point is, give the installer conplete flexibility and stop
worrying about the (in)ability of the installer to make sensible
installation choices.  If this were an issue on the part of the
installer, then you can possibly do an automatic list installation
such as the "MyChoices" template and the interactive selections
would remain hidden unless there was a conflict resolution that
is required to resolve it.

That's all I am going to say for now.
