Description Rex Dieter 2006-06-27 11:45:29 EDT
Since qt4 separated much of it's functionality into separate shared libs, it is
now possible to create console (ie, non-gui/x11) qt4 apps.  In this case,
installing the existing qt4 pkgs with it's dependancies on xorg-x11 would be
largely wastefull.

For example, SuSE has a qt(4)-x11 subpkg.
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2006-06-27 14:22:08 EDT
So, what to name the "gui" bits... qt4-x11, qt4-gui?
Atm, I'm leaning toward qt4-gui
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-06-28 13:38:37 EDT
Turns out most other pkgs use -x11 for this, -gui usually implies an gui *app*.
