The latest version of solview includes something I've been working on for a while - the ability to construct a jumpstart profile.
The aim is to get a tool to do the hard work of resolving package dependencies, so that the resulting jumpstart profile is nicely self-consistent. Doing this in the past has been very much a case of trial and error. No more!
I'll just show one screenshot here, of adding evolution on top of the reduced networking metacluster:
There's a lot more work than can be done here. The interface, while workable, is rather crude. I would like to get it to construct a reasonable jumpstart profile based on an installed system, and it would be nice to be able to feed it all my old profiles and get it to fix them up for me. And I'm sure there are many other ways it could be improved, or used in different ways.
So if you have any suggestions, give me a shout!
