Description Pete Zaitcev 2006-01-08 15:47:45 EST
I cannot get rid of gphoto2, apparently, because I have an HP printer.

[root@mallorn zaitcev]# rpm -e gphoto2
error: Failed dependencies:
        libgphoto2.so.2 is needed by (installed) sane-backends-1.0.17-0.fc4.1.i386
        libgphoto2_port.so.0 is needed by (installed)
[root@mallorn zaitcev]# rpm -e sane-backends
error: Failed dependencies:
        sane-backends is needed by (installed) libsane-hpaio-0.9.7-4.2.i386
[root@mallorn zaitcev]# rpm -e libsane-hpaio
error: Failed dependencies:
        libhpip.so.0 is needed by (installed) hpijs-0.9.7-4.2.i386

I don't have a good suggestion how to resolve this. But it looks weird,
doesn't it?

This came about now because I upgraded an FC3 box to FC4 and noticed
that gphoto2 is being downloaded. Not a super high priority. Disk space
is cheap. I mostly care because it's a VIA box and yum gets bogged down,
so I want fewer packages on a server.

It's odd, but I don't think it's worth the effort to try and split the backends
up by type, because then you have to try and figure out how to sanely get them
onto the system based on what devices are plugged in at the moment.
