kernel-source-2.6.3-2.1.238 requires qt-devel:  A bad situation for a
headless server with small hard drive
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-03-05 13:27:12 EST
I wouldn't expect you to want to recompile your kernel on a headless
server with a small hard drive, after all the kernel source is huge
already. make xconfig requires qt-devel.....
Comment 2 ajs 2004-03-05 13:40:08 EST
I don't want to compile the _KERNEL_.  I need to compile some external
drivers.  If I wanted to build the kernel I'd use the .src.rpm.  The
machine I would do that on a different compute that, in any case, 
does not have many GUI applications on it.

Why not just split out a sub-package called kernel-source-xconfig that
depends on qt-devel?
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2004-03-05 13:41:30 EST
ehm you cannot use kernel-source for building external drivers
against.... all the bits for that are already part of the normal
kernel(-smp) rpm.

sounds like that is the misconception here...

cool. (rpm -e kernel-source).
