Description Dave Jones 2006-06-25 02:40:58 EDT
I wanted to profile something on a headless box, so I ssh'd into it and
installed oprofile.  It pulled in all this...

Having to pull in all those X libraries on a headless server is a bit annoying.
How about making it optional in a oprofile-ui sub package ?
Comment 1 William Cohen 2006-06-26 10:56:19 EDT
Separated out oprof_start from the normal package and put it in oprofile-gui.
That should be the only thing requiring all the x11 stuff.  This is available in
oprofile-0.9.1-11.1.1. Remove oprofile and the unwanted X11 files and try
installing the new oprofile rpm that excludes oprof_start.
