"yum grouplist hidden" shows as installed only the "system tools" group.
Also issuing a "yum list installed" and comparing to the list of
packages shown with a "yum groupinfo core" it seems there are a LOT
more of what is in the @core set.(other than package dependencies)

So reading along the relevant section of yum man page, it seems that
who has installed the system have not selected a particular group but
instead have accepted some default of the fedora installer (like a mix
of @base and system tools - maybe using a kickstart file).

Could you please confirm that the package section of a kickstart file
to install ONLY the @core package set is as follow:

%packages --nobase

thank you again
