Description Daniel Resare 2001-01-10 11:13:23 UTC
As i use a stripped down box for compiling different packages i don't need
an X server on that machine, but i need the X11 libraries and headers
(located in the XFree86-libs and XFree86-devel). So, at least to my eyes,
the fact that XFree86-devel is dependant on XFree86 is a bug, it should
only be dependant on XFree86-libs.
A patch to XFree86-4.01-1 specfile:
