Description Peter Robinson 2008-09-29 12:24:24 UTC
It would be useful to split out the lm_sensor libs into a -libs subpackage that would allow packages that use the lm_sensors libraries to install just the -libs so that it doesn't pull in extra dependencies like perl
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2008-09-30 11:56:13 UTC
libsensors is useless with having sensors configured which requires sensors-detect. Having a system without perl is as good as impossible anyways, so splitting it up to not Require perl does not make much sense either. Closing as not a bug. Feel free to re-open if you think you've got strong (new) arguments to do the split anyways.
Comment 2 Peter Robinson 2008-09-30 12:06:21 UTC
I don't believe attacking my idea of having a system without perl is the best way to deal with this. I believe it should be autoconfigured by hal/dbus and all that group of stuff anyway without requiring a user to run some detection script. One reason to do this would be to allow the installation of net-snmp-utils which in turn requires net-snmp-libs which requires the above mentioned libraries but the net-snmp-utils are useful on their own with out all the other stuff installed because they can be used for snmpwalks of remote systems.

(In reply to comment #2) > I don't believe attacking my idea of having a system without perl is the best > way to deal with this. I'm not attacking your idea, I'm just saying it isn't a very practical idea ATM. If you really want to pursue this, please do. And when you've tackled the much bigger fish in getting a perl free system I'll gladly revisit this. > I believe it should be autoconfigured by hal/dbus and > all that group of stuff anyway without requiring a user to run some detection > script. Unfortunately, due to the way it is implemented in hardware, hw monitoring cannot be simply autodetected and configured from something like udev.
