Description of problem:

Do I have to soon remove whole gnome to not use extremely memory hungry packages
like PackageKit ? 

rpm -e gnome-packagekit-0.1.9-3.fc9.x86_64
error: Failed dependencies:
	/usr/bin/system-install-packages is needed by (installed)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:
No dependency on a package which eats 150MB and does nothing really useful most
of the time...

system-config-printer needs to be able to install missing drivers, one way or

If PackageKit pulls in more than it needs to, or uses more memory than it needs
to, that is a PackageKit problem.

Changing component and reassigning.
Comment 2 Richard Hughes 2008-03-27 13:17:55 EDT
PackageKit doesn't depend on gnome, but gnome-packagekit does. If you want to
remove gnome-packagekit, i guess you'll have to install a package that also
provides that file or remove system-config-printer.

Also, how exactly do you think PackageKit uses too much memory? It's only loaded
when needed and then quits when idle...

I don't think there is a bug that needs to be fixed here.
