RFE: process explicit deps. before implicit ones to try to reduce pulling in extra deps.
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:02:33 EST
Doing a "yum install totem" should be dragging in totem-gstreamer, not _both_
totem-gstreamer and totem-xine.
The main totem package has a requires on "totem-gstreamer", but the
libbaconvideowidget.so.0 dependency will resolve to totem-xine (because of the
shorter name?), so both packages will be installed.

Yeh, one of the things we are thinking of doing, after Fed-9 is out, is
processing all the explicit dependencies first ... which should solve a couple
of the problems like this.
Until something like that goes in though, it's going to stay as is.
Too bad as it makes it seem like totem is completely busted. I couldn't figure
out why totem wouldn't play much of anything even though I had the other
gstreamer-based apps working fine. Turns out totem-xine was installed and was
mucking up the works. This on two systems from preview installs. I don't imagine
this could be fixed in the comps as the dependency would still be pulled in?
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

A commit I just did today orders requires which I'm pretty sure will solve the above.
