BeanShell Desktop in menus from OpenOffice.org dependancy
Last modified: 2008-03-10 10:18:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Found some random BeanShell Desktop application in my Gnome memu. I don't need
a Java console thingy, so I tried to remove it. Then yum wants to remove
openoffice.org-core. This is odd.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openoffice.org-core
2. Watch random bsh package get brought in as a dependency
3. Scratch head
bsh is installed
I dunno... no weird java gui thing in my menu?
If there is a real dependency on bsh for some reason (such as a library or jar
or something), then perhaps splitting bsh into bsh and bsh-desktop packages
would be better. At the moment, everyone gets BeanShell Desktop installed and
that seems wrong.
It is not a packaging error for OOo to depend on bsh. i.e. it's part of the
vanilla openoffice.org for editing macros, and on fedora we use the fedora
packaged bsh. i.e. it can be seen in tools->macros->organize macros->beanshell
Having a bsh split into a bit with menus and without might make sense to reduce
Fixed in Rawhide. The bsh package now has a desktop subpackage which contains
the menu entry.
