Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 246699
KDE deps should be in subpackage
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:09 EST
Description of problem:
Installing gnash-plugin pulls in a KDE-ish dependencies: qt, arts, kdelibs,
kde-settings, and kdnssd-avahi. This should only occur if the user decides to
install the KDE plugin for it, as it creates unnecessary dependency bloat for
GNOME or *box users who otherwise have no need for these packages to be installed.
This appears to be due to the inclusion of the libklash.so glob in the %files
listing. Attached is a patch to move it to the klash subpackage.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Created attachment 158497 [details]
Moves the libklash glob to the klash subpackage.
This could make sense, however gnash itself links against the
same kde libs than klash, so I don't think it is worth it.
Otherwise said, did you test that the split you propose
removes the kde dependency of gnash?

Nah; I didn't explicitly test it. I just thought that changing the file list
there would prevent RPM from automagicallyt picking up the KDE deps.
Thanks for your clarification though. Closing as NOTABUG.
I reclose it as a duplicate of a similar bug.
