Description Szombathelyi György 2007-11-16 20:34:45 EST
Description of problem:

Installing xen with python-virtinst pulls gtk and X.org packages

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just upgrade f7 to f8, python-virtinst will pull unnecessary X.org packages 
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
python-virtinst depends on virt-viewer, which is a gtk2 app, so installing it
will pull gtk2 and X.org packages. But it's only required if managing guests
through VNC. So vnc_console method in /usr/bin/virt-install should return an
error if virt-viewer not found and the package should not require it.

Actually this happens now when you run yum update/upgrade on F7. So F7 is also

python-virtinst-0.200.0-4.fc7 does not require virt-viewer, but
python-virtinst-0.300.2-1.fc7 does.

The suggestion above sounds like the right way to fix this. Please remove the
virt-viewer requirement and update the packages in rawhide, 8 and 7. Thank you. :)
Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2008-01-31 12:23:17 EST
For F9 we've decide to make use of the 'comps.xml'  file to ensure virt-viewer
is in the default install set for anyone selecting Virtualization. This means we
don't need an explicit dependancy anymore.  I'll also remove the dep from F7/8 -
people will just have to install it manually for F7/8 if they want auto-console.
This should allow  non-X  based installs with python-virtinst

From the F7 updates-testing repository:

Now yum update/upgrade on F7 is ok again.
