Why is kdebase3 a (Build)Require?
Last modified: 2008-03-12 02:56:36 EDT
Description of problem:
kdebase3 is defined as a BuildRequire and a Require in konversation.spec. Is
there a reason for this? It also builds fine without it an I don't see a
direct require on kdebase3 or kdebase3-libs in %configure output
or "rpm -q --requires konversation".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
konversation is the only application on the current rawhide live images that
requires kdebase3 (and kdebase3-libs). If it's not needed we have some free
space for other packages.
The BuildRequires only needs to be kdelibs3-devel however the requires is
there so that help works. it ensures khelpcenter is installed
Re: khelpcenter, see also bug #435133
OK, the approach we're going to try taking (the same as gnome does) for online
help/documentation browser, in that it will *not* a hard dependency.
In the meantime, we'll explore the option of splitting khelpcenter out (of
kdebase, kdebase-runtime respectively).

FYI, khelpcenter is now fully provided by kdebase-runtime, including the KDE 3
service .desktop for KDE 3 apps.
