I'm going over the installation pre-configuration checklist (after installing the latest stable release on CentOS _64 which is a bit backwards, I know) and I came across the recommendation:

Code:
Before you install cPanel & WHM, make sure that the following yum groups are not installed on your server:

    FTP Server
    GNOME Desktop Environment
    KDE (K Desktop Environment)
    Mail Server or E-mail Server...
The only groups I see from that list when running "yum grouplist" is E-Mail server. If you issue the command to remove it the dependencies will go with it - namely dovecot x86_64 1:2.2.13-1.cp1140 Seeing as how this is a fresh install on a clean VPS - wouldn't this have been installed by the cPanel installer - and therefore not be removed?

Hello :)

It's important to ensure those yum groups are removed before installing cPanel. You shouldn't have to remove that existing group at this point, but if you do choose to do so, please run the following command to ensure the cPanel RPMs are installed.

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms
Thank you.

Ok - I ran the command. There wasn't any output. Things seem to have gone well with the install.
No output indicates the required cPanel RPMs are successfully installed.

Thank you.
