Description of problem: After downloading and installing Fedora rawhide from boot.iso (2009-08-18), trying to install gdm pulls some kde packages. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1:2.27.4-4.fc12 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. install a fresh rawhide from boot.iso (20090818) 2. yum install gdm | grep kde 3. observe the pulled kdebase packages as dependencies Actual results: pulled kdebase packages as dependencies Expected results: no kde package should be required by gdm
Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 11:31:49 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle. Changing version to '12'. More information and reason for this action is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

I somehow doubt that there can be a dependency chain leading from gdm to kdebase, considering that we have gdm on the live cd, but not kdebase. Please reopen if you can show a dependency chain.
Comment 3 Hicham HAOUARI 2009-12-02 03:22:46 UTC
Hi Matthias, I filed this pre Fedora 12 Alpha, and the root cause was that gdm depends on policykit, and for a reason polkit-kde was pulled instead of polkit-gnome. That was the reason given to me at the time.
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2009-12-02 04:35:44 UTC
I think at that time, gdm was requiring some abstract provides, like polkit-session-agent or so, which was provided by both polkit-gnome and polkit-kde. Nowadays, gdm requires polkit-gnome, so I think this should not be an issue anymore.
