Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 312281
setroubleshoot requires gnome to run
Last modified: 2008-05-21 10:25:56 EDT
Description of problem:
When you want setroubleshoot to run on your server without X you still need
a lot of gnome libs and gnome requirements. Now I install the rpm with --nodeps
option and it installs fine and works too.
Yes, good point. Just after RHEL5 was released we split setroubleshoot into two
packages, a server only, and the desktop GUI just for the reason you cite. The
next time we update RHEL these changes should be pulled in, current planning has
the next update set for 5.2.
With some minor tweaks the current upstream/Fedora version could be made to
install on RHEL5 and that is on the list of work items ahead. I'll try to
remember to update this bugzilla when that occurs if you're interested.
Ye I would appreciate that :)
