Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 223180
m17n-db-<LANG> should check scim, scim-m17n, m17n-lib, m17n-db as dependency before install

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #223179 +++
Description of problem:
m17n-db-<LANG> gets installed without checking for any dependency. For example,
if m17n-db-punjabi is installed and scim-m17n (and m17n-lib) is not installed,
punjabe keymaps are useless.
when following package was installed in my machine
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
when install indic locale on db file for m17n
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install only scim
2. install m17n-db-punjabi
m17n-db-punjabi installed, but not working, even not showing in scim-setup
should work and shown in scim-setup
m17n-db-<LANG> should check scim, scim-m17n, m17n-lib, m17n-db as dependency

Noting that scim-m17n and m17n-lib was not installed.
Hmm, the problem is m17n-db can also be used with other input methods than
scim, eg uim supports it with the uim-m17n subpackage in Extras so I don't
think we should force its users to install scim.
The recommended way to install support for a language is with
"yum groupinstall <lang>-support" or using the pirut to select
the language group.
It might well make sense though to have certain m17n-db-<lang> packages require
appropriate fonts packages though, since input is also meaningless without
Jens, I agree with your explanation.
