Description Philip Gwyn 2005-02-16 20:36:25 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
This patch adds %define use_X to the spec file.  This define is then
used to conditionnaly turn functionnaly that needs X11 on or off.

Deactivating X11 is useful for servers.

ImageMagick with X11 removed won't have display(1).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Default install of FC3
2. rpm -e xorg-x11-libs


Actual Results:  Step 2 fails because ImageMagick (amoungst others)
requires X11 libs.

Expected Results:  Being able to install a server w/o X11 libs.

Comment 1 Mephisto 2005-05-01 06:37:33 EDT
I'd like to see ImageMagick being split in 2 packages: the command line utils
and the x11 based tools. I need ImageMagick on my server for php scripts with
image processing, but i dont want X11 installed on it. The latest ImageMagick
( makes it even worse by also requiring gtk2 (wtf?), cups-libs (a
printer on a web server...?), some font stuff, xorg-x11-xfs (a font server? what
do i need that for??), and more...

seems like i almost need a complete X install, just to use ImageMagick command
line tools...

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
