Description Matthias Clasen 2010-08-24 13:57:32 EDT
To make the F14 desktop spin fit on a cd, we are working to get perl off the image. We just got rid of the last perl dep in syslinux, and now tigervnc-server is pulling in a new one.

If we can't get rid of it, we'll have to kick tigervnc-server off the desktop spin, I'm afraid.
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2010-08-24 14:11:52 EDT
Of course, anaconda pulling it in makes that a little harder to do, grr.

So, perl is the 3rd largest package on the live cd, and it is getting pulled in solely for /usr/bin/vncserver.
Comment 2 Adam Tkac 2010-08-25 03:49:48 EDT
In my opinion the best solution is to create new subpkg and ship only Xvnc, vncpasswd and vncconfig there. tigervnc-server will Requires: <this_new_subpkg> so everything should be same for common users.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2010-08-25 10:14:39 EDT
And then anaconda will be made to require only that new tigervnc-server-barebones package ? Sounds fine to me.
Comment 4 Bruno Wolff III 2010-08-25 10:23:45 EDT
It looks like there is a test build of this being put together this morning.
Is there a bug to request the change to anaconda?
