Description Hans de Goede 2005-11-30 09:21:39 EST

Because I'm going to update libgnomedb in devel soon, I have taken a look at
programs requiring it.

abiword's specfile contains:
Requires: libgnomedb >= 1.0.4

However abiword does not seem to use it I did the following to see if it used
any libs or other files installed by libgnomedb:
[hans@guest-dhcp-133 plugins]$ rpm -ql abiword|xargs grep gnomedb
[hans@guest-dhcp-133 plugins]$ rpm -ql abiword|xargs grep gnome-db
[hans@guest-dhcp-133 plugins]$ rpm -ql abiword|xargs grep gnome-database

This should catch usage of any libgnomedb installed file/executable and/or library.

The Requires isn't really a problem for my upgrade since abiword's dependecies
will still be matched by the upgraded version, but the Requires seems unnescesarry.

The GDA plugin uses it afaik. Will double check soonish.
Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2005-12-02 09:38:04 EST
That plugin doesn't seem to be included in the package:
[hans@shalem ~]$ ls /usr/lib64/AbiWord-2.4/plugins/libAbi*
Comment 3 Marc Maurer 2005-12-05 07:23:25 EST
Erm, duh :-P I disabled the GDA plugin and didn't remove depends. I'll fix this
issue soonish, feel free to continu with your update of gda/gnomedb.

I saw that you've fixed this in CVS, closing.
