Description Daniel Drake 2008-07-10 11:55:04 EDT
Our F9 xulrunner has grown various dependencies compared to the F7 one.

Here's a patch which removes the following dependencies:

I had to add the build requirement on dbus-glib-devel because koji failed
without it: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=706551

Here's the successfully built version:

Forgot to mention, once upon a time in OLPC-2 David Zeuthen did something similar:
* Tue May 16 2006 David Zeuthen <davidz@redhat.com>
- Build with --disable-gnomeui --disable-gnomevfs and drop BuildRequires
- gnome-vfs2-devel, ligbnome-devel, libgnomeui-devel

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2008-07-14 03:13:42 EDT
Seems to be a duplicate of bug 454670, and the solution here seems to be quite
excessive IMHO (we actually want XULRunner on Fedora proper to use Gnome).
Comment 4 Tethys 2008-07-14 06:24:12 EDT
No, we *don't* want XULRunner to use Gnome. You might do. But I, as an
end user, do not. I'm all for it using Gnome features if they're available
(on my machine, they generally won't be available, on the average Fedora
user's machine, they will). But forcing an end user to have a bunch of
stuff they don't want installed, just to use a web browser? Nope. That's
a step too far. The upstream app has no such dependencies, and you shouldn't
be forcing such additional dependencies on your users.
Comment 5 Daniel Drake 2008-07-14 09:36:03 EDT
Sorry, my original report was unclear. I am only suggesting this dependency
change for the OLPC-3 branch, not F-9.
Comment 6 Simon Schampijer 2008-07-14 11:17:27 EDT
built, will be in joyride soon
Comment 7 Daniel Drake 2008-07-21 12:41:06 EDT
Simon fixed this, thanks.
