[Mageia-discuss] Installer: Server v. desktop kernel: No choice?

Having installed Mageia-1 (from DVD), I find it has installed the
server kernels, rather than the desktop kernels.

Presumably that's because my PC has 4GB RAM, but - on this 1-user system
- I would have preferred the desktop kernels to be installed.

Did I miss an installation option, to choose server v. desktop?

If not, could the installer be given such an option - perhaps in
some 'Advanced' tab?

That would avoid having to swap kernels with:

      urpmi kernel-desktop-latest
      urpmi kernel-desktop-devel-latest
      urpmi nvidia-current-kernel-desktop-latest

(assuming that will do the trick here).
