Description Rahul Sundaram 2008-01-07 14:01:59 EST
Description of problem:

NetworkManager-gnome seems to pull in a number of unneeded dependencies. I am
trying to use NetworkManager-gnome by default in the Xfce spin I am working on.
Maybe create a NetworkManager-gtk as a alternative for those who want to have a
frontend without all the GNOME dependencies. 

Actual results:

# yum install NetworkManager-gnome


Package Arch Version Repository Size


NetworkManager-gnome i386 1:0.7.0-0.6.6.svn3109.fc8 updates 235 k

 nodoka-theme-gnome      noarch     0.3.2-2.fc8      fedor        11 k

Expected results:

I am pretty sure gnome-panel and evolution-data-server is not required to run
NetworkManager-gnome outside of the GNOME environment. Not sure what else is not
needed but has been made a dependency just so that they all are normally
installed together.

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2008-10-13 15:33:07 EDT
Annoying for KDE folks as well until knetworkmanager is up to snuff.
Comment 3 John Poelstra 2008-10-13 16:56:26 EDT
This bug has been triaged
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-13 22:46:59 EDT
The gnome-panel dependency is what pulls in most of the rest, and looks to me like it could be dropped without adverse effects.
Comment 5 Dan Williams 2008-10-14 10:46:35 EDT
yeah, the applet no longer links to anything in gnome-panel-devel.  will remove the dep.
Comment 6 Dan Williams 2008-11-02 16:46:48 EST
Dep has been removed in rawhide, will filter down to F8 and F9 as well.
