Description of problem:
system-config-keyboard requires firstboot?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It sounds logical that firstboot may/should requires lots of system-*
chkconfig, authconfig... tools, but the oposite sounds very strange (I for one
always remove firstboot* after install).
On one of my systems, firstboot actually hangs the machine (see bug #244006). I
used to be able to uninstall it easily. Now I have to "rpm -ev --nodeps" it,
which makes me feel dirty. ;)
You can simply 'chkconfig firstboot off'.

Now I feel stupid. Thanks for the tip. 8)

Requires firstboot due to placing files in the firstboot directory structure.
system-config-language-1.3.2-3.fc10.noarch seems to use the firstboot directory structure as well, but to be able to do that without a package requirement:
| [tim@lockfix ~/Desktop/Agenda]$ rpm -qf /usr/share/firstboot/
| [tim@lockfix ~/Desktop/Agenda]$
It would be really nice if the dependency of system-config-keyboard on firstboot could be lost as firstboot draws in metacity and other packages in return.
The firstboot dependency could be moved to a subpackage, like smolt-firstboot. Please reopen.
