rpmdep -dot redhat-lsb-core.dot redhat-lsb-core

redhat-lsb-core pulls in the graphical stack as dependencies due to the dependency on cups -> cups-filters

redhat-lsb-core was created as a minimal subset of redhat-lsb for situations where it was inappropriate to pull in the entire graphical stack that redhat-lsb depends on. For background on this see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=835919

Currently installing redhat-lsb-core-4.1-14.fc19 results in an 87M installed size. This makes using lsb_release impractical in many scenarios such as a fedora cloud image.

Attached is the outputs of the following commands:

yum install rpmorphan
rpmdep -dot redhat-lsb-core.dot redhat-lsb-core
dot -Tsvg -o redhat-lsb-core.svg < redhat-lsb-core.dot

Below is the yum output for installing redhat-lsb-core on a pristine Fedora 19 cloud image

Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2013-12-19 02:10:15 EST
Sounds strange. I don't see explicit cups requirement in redhat-lsb-core of f19 - http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/rpminfo?rpmID=4020867 and http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/rpminfo?rpmID=4020866 ... it would be really good to find out what dependency brings it in.
Comment 3 Ondrej Vasik 2014-03-26 02:26:33 EDT
I see, /usr/bin/lp and /usr/bin/lpr explicit binary requirement. Adding Tim Waugh to cc - Tim, are you aware of any reason why these have to be in the lsb-core instead of the printing module ?
Comment 4 Ondrej Vasik 2014-03-26 02:31:24 EDT
Hmmms, I see... /usr/bin/lpr is required binary in the core specification. Can we have the core cups binaries in some subpackage? Otherwise, the graphical stack will likely stay in dependency tree - I have to require /usr/bin/lpr in -core.

Potentially the CUPS client binaries could be in a sub-package.

How does this spec file change look?

Looks good to me. I'd just make the Requires arch-specific, i.e.
Requires: %{name}-client%{?_isa} = %{epoch}:%{version}-%{release}

We miss it also in '%package lpd', so could you do [1]
- Requires: %{name} = %{epoch}:%{version}-%{release}
+ Requires: %{name}%{?_isa} = %{epoch}:%{version}-%{release}
when you are in it ?

Actually it won't be that easy I think - we use alternatives for these binaries.
Shouldn't the installing of alternatives be moved from %post to '%post client' ?

Moved to cups, as the package split will happen there (with no change in redhat-lsb-core)

Oh, you're right, thanks for spotting that. Luckily all of the 'alternatives' commands will move to the sub-package, so we can just move the alternatives handling to the client sub-packages.

Let's make those changes, along with the {?_isa} addition and the lpd sub-package fix.

Should be fixed in cups-1.7.1-9.fc21
