Description Daniel Drake 2008-07-24 22:17:13 UTC
Would you consider splitting xdriinfo into it's own package, excluded from the
xorg-x11-server dependency chain?

xdriinfo depends on mesa which adds a lot of stuff into the OLPC XO software
build. For Fedora 7 and now Fedora 9 we have forked xorg-x11-utils to remove
xdriinfo and the mesa stuff, but it would be nice to be able to drop our fork
(if not soon, then in the Fedora 10 timeframe).

Comment 1 Adam Jackson 2008-07-28 01:02:48 UTC
xdriinfo isn't particularly useful anyway, and it really belongs in glx-utils. 
I'll just drop it from xorg-x11-utils for now, if someone wants it back I'll
re-add it to Mesa.

Comment 2 Adam Jackson 2008-07-28 01:09:33 UTC
Fixed in xorg-x11-utils 7.4-3.fc10.  I'm inclined to just leave the package
forked for F9 though; if you disagree, please reopen.
