[openFATE 308163] Add mc (midnight commander) to selected packages by default during installation
Feature changed by: Felix Miata (mrmazda)
Feature #308163, revision 15
Title: Add mc (midnight commander) to selected packages by default
during installation

- openSUSE Distribution: Done
+ openSUSE Distribution: New
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Yuri Baranow (ybaranow)
Partner organization:

During installation, after selecting desktop type (gnome or kde) by
default the package MC (Midnight Commander) is always turned off.
Add MC package to be selected for installation by default.
Thank you.

Use Case:
Every installation from any media

Business case (Partner benefit): From year to year, from version to version when I install
suse, after selecting desktop type (gnome or kde) I always MUST go into
detailed package selection to turn on MC (Midnight Commander) to be
installed also.
This become very annoying for me. :-(
Oh, Please... Add MC package to be selected for installation.
Thank you.

I totally agree with this :-)

Did you test openSUSE 11.2 release candidate? mc is on both KDE and
GNOME Live-CDs and should be also installed by default from DVD/Net.

#3: Yuri Baranow (ybaranow) (2009-10-23 13:23:34)
I talk about installation (not about live-cds).
Package is on the disk, but by default it is not selected to be

#4: Yuri Baranow (ybaranow) (2009-10-23 13:25:03)
...and yes, i written all of this after installing from 11.2 RC1.

I know there are a lot of cd, ls, vi funs, but I am not one of them.
I am more user them power user. For me CLI without mc is like missing
ls, cd, vi for hardcore linuxoids.

I fully support. It will be useful.

#7: nick skeen (ns89) (2010-09-01 01:15:18)
Seeing as how it can be useful and is fairly small. I don't see why

#8: Satoru Matsumoto (heliosreds) (2010-12-20 14:00:19)
Since openSUSE 11.3 has been already released, I've changed the target
product from 11.3 to distribution.

When I installed the last M5 of upcoming openSUSE 11.4 from KDE LiveCD,
'mc' was installed by default. So I guess this feature should be marked
as DONE for 11.4 :)

It may have been done at some time in the past, but after selecting
"Custom" for "Computer Role", in detailed package selection where MC is
listed in "Console Tools" in the Leap 42.3-0272 installer, and in the
TW 20170607 installer, MC is not preselected for installation.
