Hello everyone

i just notice there a hidden option between basic web server and legacy unix compatibilty in the installation

basic web server :point_down:

notice the blue line is that hidden option or bug in the installations :point_down:

legacy unix :point_down:

thanks for the help and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Those lists are populated with dnf groups, arent they?

$ dnf -q group info "Server with GUI"

@jlehtone thanks for the help

could be i am not sure but when i move the down arrow from any selection about that line it work fine then it hide like that then one more press it go the legacy unix option

but after fire your command and compare it with the selections from the installation i notice this group does not exist in the installation Games and Entertainment
so not sure if it’s that or something else

thanks for the help and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Some groups are marked hidden. See dnf --hidden group list
The installer might have custom filter on what groups it shows from repos.

now it become harder to know loool there even group for browser on that hidden group list

so i guess it a separator as @jlehtone thought
