Description Sam Varshavchik 2007-07-01 10:22:02 EDT
Description of problem:

On a headless server, I am now forced to installed a lot of gtk2 baggage due to
grub's dependencies.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to do a minimal install for a headless server that's supposed to be a
simple Internet firewall/proxy.
2. Try to remove all the baggage that gets loaded
Actual results:

[root@headache ~]# rpm -e gtk2
error: Failed dependencies:
        libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0 is needed by (installed) gtk2-engines-2.10.2-2.fc7.i386
        libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0 is needed by (installed)
        libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 is needed by (installed) gtk2-engines-2.10.2-2.fc7.i386
        gtk2 >= 2.9.0 is needed by (installed) gtk2-engines-2.10.2-2.fc7.i386
[root@headache ~]# rpm -e gtk2-engines
error: Failed dependencies:
        gtk2-engines >= 2.9.0 is needed by (installed)
        gtk2-engines >= 2.9.4-2 is needed by (installed)
[root@headache ~]# rpm -e gnome-themes redhat-artwork fedora-logos
error: Failed dependencies:
        system-logos is needed by (installed) grub-0.97-13.i386

Expected results:

I should not have to have the entire gnome/gtk2 stack installed, just because of
grub. Somewhere along this chain of dependencies, things need to be refactored,
a bit.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Sam Varshavchik 2007-07-01 10:23:34 EDT
Ommited a small step from cut-paste:

The fedora-logos dependency is due to this:

[root@headache ~]# rpm -e gnome-themes redhat-artwork
error: Failed dependencies:
        redhat-artwork is needed by (installed) fedora-logos-6.0.98-3.fc7.noarch
