Description Stepan Kasal 2007-01-30 18:41:48 UTC
GConf2 rpm currently requires the whole GTK.

This is unfortunate, because glib + libgconf should be enough for command-line
utilities which use gconf, but not X.  (For example, frysk.rpm is full of such
utilities; the GUI for Frysk has been searated to frysk-gnome.rpm.)

The cause is /usr/libexec/gconf-sanity-check-2 which is linked against gtk.
Automatic dependencies then bring gtk to reuirements.

Could this be resolved?  Prehaps by moving the GUI utility to a separate rpm?

Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2007-02-02 05:28:24 UTC
I think I agree, we should move the sanity-check to a subpackage.
When we do so, we need to update gnome-session to require the subpackage.

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2007-02-05 19:38:32 UTC
There is a GConf2-gtk subpackage now.
