[solved] archinstall downloads gnome after selecting awesomewm

Recently I wanted to try out awesomewm on an old laptop and opted to use archinstall to save time, after finishing up I noticed it's awful lot similar to gnome, when I checked it turns out it instead downloaded and setup gnome instead of awesome (it was a relitively minimal installation too without any themes or background even with gdm) . Just to be sure I repeated the installation twice and did confirm that for some reason on my device it persists with downloading gnome when selecting awesomewm, I haven't had the time to test other selections if they have the same result but I'm wondering if such a bug exists and how to prevent it. I will probably manually install it later but I found this interesting.

Solution: I assumed gdm doesn't differ much from sddm since I haven't used gnome before but that was the main reason the system looked off, awesomewm was installed but wasnt configured yet.

Please share the archinstall log file.

In respect of extant bugs, have you checked https://github.com/archlinux/archinstall/issues?

GDM is Gnomes DM, along with dependencies like, gnome-shell or gnome-session. Can you check if awesome is installed? If you want gnome you can also install awesome-gnome.

It does appear like awesome is installed yes probably the system appears this way because of gdm, I don't have a way to post the log file yet either but I'll test with sddm instead
