I know that. I do/done that. But it just seems backwards to go through
all the steps of an install, followed by a 300Mb upgrade (where,for
example, OpenOffice was installed). At least now I do have the local
repo, so I am not killing my WAN anymore.
I know I can go through the steps for a minimal install then try and add
everything later. Command line yum is hard to use for this. Yumex is
not much better for the initial adding of packages. The Gnome Software
Updater is almost as reasonable to work with as the one in the installer.
Well for today I have at least 2 systems to install. I have to build my
new Scalix server that the lvm create failed yesterday. I also want to
try a direct install on a DecTOP (that failed with 5.1, I had to put the
drive in another system for the install, then move it and
system-config-display to change the video)....
I also have a kernel panic on an existing DecTOP that I upgraded
yesterday. I am going to see what a new install will do.
