depepndency issue in packaging
Last modified: 2008-01-22 17:48:48 EST
There's some weird dependencies going on between firstboot and system-config-*.
This came up in RHEL, however it exists in Fedora and is likely best fixed
there first. The problem is:
system-config-keyboard <-> firstboot
The problem comes in removing iptables-ipv6, which (properly)
system-config-securitylevel-tui depends on. system-config-securitylevel depends
on s-c-sl-tui for some reason (it also doesn't pull in iptables-ipv6 by itself
for some reason). So in order to remove iptables-ipv6, you have to remove
firstbbot, firstboot-tui, s-c-k, s-c-sl, and s-c-sl-tui. All of those make
sense except for system-config-keyboard, which itself should not require
firstboot - though firstboot should require s-c-k.
firstboot is required as this package drops files into the firstboot directory
tree. In order to avoid improper directory ownership firstboot has to be installed.
