Description of problem:
When installing kdebase via yum, the following packages get pulled in:


Obviously kdelibs is correct, but requiring xdm and lm_sensors doesn't
make much sense to me - I haven't seen another distro do that. Can
they be suggested, rather than depended on?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Zack Cerza 2004-10-29 19:10:50 EDT
er, sadly, rpm doesn't have suggests... this report might be futile.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-29 22:34:27 EDT
xorg-x11-xdm is because kdm requires some files from there, IIRC.

It requires libsensors.so.3, ergo, lm_sensors. (The package require:
is probably superfluous with the library require:, though)
Comment 3 Ngo Than 2004-10-31 15:22:12 EST
xorg-x11-xdm just include the config files which KDM/XDM share them.
And it's our intention. You haven't seen another distro do that,
because they add the config files in kdebase.

yes, the "require: lm_sensors" is superfluous and should be removed.
