Description Sebastian Vahl 2008-03-04 08:03:16 UTC
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):

Additional info:
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

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-03-04 12:52:06 UTC
Re: khelpcenter, see also bug #435133

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2008-03-10 12:41:38 UTC
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).

Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2008-03-12 06:56:36 UTC
FYI, khelpcenter is now fully provided by kdebase-runtime, including the KDE 3 
service .desktop for KDE 3 apps.
