[openFATE 309257] kernel choice during installation
Feature changed by: Thomas Schmidt (digitaltomm)
Feature #309257, revision 6
- Title: kernel choise during installation
+ Title: kernel choice during installation

- openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE Distribution: New
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Stefan Schäfer (flacco)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Since openSUSE 11.2 the special desktop-kernel is installed as default
kernel during installlation. As its name says, this kernel ist
optimized for desktop installations. I would prefer to choose my
prefered kernel during the system installation.
Alternativ the kernel choice could be combined with the choise of the
desktop system.
KDE,Gnome,XFCE = kernel-desktop
minimal grafic, text-based server installation = kernel-default /
kernel pae
 

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: The most of my openSUSE installations are server-
installations ;-)

openSUSE DVD has -desktop and -default kernel included. During
installation just choose one You want to install at the package
selection screen.

It's already possible to chnage the kernel flaviour from the package
details section while install.
I strongly suggest not to add an extra question as this make the
install for a Linux newcomer harder.
Therefore -1

There's no way for a newcomer to find the install minimal server choice
easily.
Futhermore, if he do that, he will just try to redo the install, as no
graphics interface would exist.
But for Advanced User, and Administrator, it's just a pain in ass, to
not able to have quickly a server type install.
So two solutions exist :
* -correcting the label "As minimal non desktop env, with a desktop-
kernel flavor"
* -adjust the pattern to automatically select the kernel-default if
minimal server install is selected.

so -1 for the question
+1 for the correction
