Description Greg Martyn 2007-12-21 21:50:12 UTC
Description of problem:
(note the extra d at the end of the daemon process' name)
ksysguard is a gui that uses ksysguardd as a backend. ksysguardd itself doesn't
have any external dependencies, and doesn't even require kde. (if it does, then
that's a bug in ksysguardd) ksysguard can connect to remote computers and
monitor them as long as the remote computer has ksysguardd installed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. N/A

Actual results:
ksysguardd is part of the kdebase package

Expected results:
ksysguardd is a separate package that kdebase depends on

Additional info:
If you need changes made to ksysguardd, let me know so that I can make them.

Comment 1 Laurent Rineau 2008-03-11 22:14:53 UTC

I was about to submit the same RFE. I have a server, hosted far from my home. 
I would have liked to be able to monitor it using the "remote ssh" feature of 
ksysguard, on my laptop.

ksysguardd does not map any part of KDE. Here is the /proc/$PID/map of 
ksysguardd on my machine (Fedora-8, kdebase-3.5.9-3.fc8):

IMO, that tool could be easily separated from the main kdebase(-workspace) 
package. I can test this setup on Fedora 8, if it is needed.

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-03-12 00:09:49 UTC
specfile patches welcome. 

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-08 00:45:07 UTC
Canceling NEEDINFO, we can't really _require_ users to submit specfile 
patches. :-) But of course it would be nice. ;-)
