That's probably right. entire is an incorporation, it just supplies
version constraints, it doesn't actually install any packages, and
you probably just get the bare framework for the image.

You probably want to find a top-level package that lists all
the software you want as regular dependencies. Something
like slim_install would give you the graphical live CD contents
(when you're done, uninstall it because otherwise it'll stop any
subsequent attempts to remove packages).
