Description Marius Andreiana 2020-10-19 19:33:49 UTC
Description of problem:

Remove trackers from system to improve performace.

dnf remove tracker3
will remove nautilus too

Expected results:
nautilus shouldn't depend on trackers, so one can remove those

Comment 1 Kalev Lember 2020-10-21 09:13:38 UTC
The deps are necessary because otherwise nautilus doesn't start:

$ sudo rpm -e tracker3-miners --nodeps
$ nautilus

(org.gnome.Nautilus:1651298): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: 11:08:07.341: Settings schema 'org.freedesktop.Tracker3.Miner.Files' is not installed
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

I'd be happy to change the Requires to Recommends in the future if anything changes (if nautilus actually works without tracker3-miners installed). If you want this to happen, I'd suggest working with upstream getting this changed.

Let's close this ticket for now as the packaging is correct here (but feel free to file a new one or reopen this if anything changes upstream and nautilus actually works without tracker miners installed).
