Description Daniel McNamara 2008-03-02 22:06:44 UTC
Description of problem:

Latest update of setroubleshoot-plugins pull ins setroubleshoot on non-gui
systems resulting in further dependency cascades as it pull in X and half of GNOME

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

2.0.4-3.fc8

How reproducible:

Everytime


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a non-gui system installed with setroubleshoot-server-1.10.7-1.fc8 and
setroubleshoot-plugins-1.10.4-1.fc8
2. Run yum update to pull down updates for both packages
3. Stare in horror as you reliase that setroubleshoot-plugins suddenly has a
dependency for setroubleshoot, which then goes to cascade onto pulling in half
of GNOME.

Actual results:

setroubleshoot-plugins for some reason now requires setroubleshoot

Expected results:

setroubleshoot-plugins should be able to run independent of setroubleshoot,
simply with setroubleshoot-server for non-gui environments that wish to benefit
from the help the setroubleshoot-server can bring. Change in dependency could
cause a lot of havoc for those that aren't so careuful in running updates.

Thank you for reporting this. The spec file had the wrong requires, it should
have required setroubleshoot-server, not setroubleshoot. It's been fixed and
should appear in an update shortly.
