Description Dan Davis 2009-01-18 18:14:03 EST
Description of problem:
I have a system with no wireless hardware, yet I must have wireless tools installed to have most of the graphical system configuration tools installed.
Obviously this isn't urgent, it's only 200k of system resources, but it would be nice for those of us without wireless hardware to not need wireless software installed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove wireless-tools package via yum
Actual results:
Processing Dependency: libiw.so.29()(64bit) for package: rhpl
Processing Dependency: rhpl for package: system-config-language
Processing Dependency: rhpl >= 0.6 for package: system-config-boot
Processing Dependency: rhpl for package: system-config-date
Processing Dependency: rhpl >= 0.148.2 for package: system-config-lvm
Processing Dependency: rhpl for package: firstboot
Processing Dependency: rhpl for package: system-config-firewall-tui
Processing Dependency: rhpl for package: system-config-users
Processing Dependency: rhpl >= 0.53 for package: system-config-keyboard
Processing Dependency: rhpl >= 0.193 for package: system-config-network-tui
Processing Dependency: rhpl for package: system-config-rootpassword
Processing Dependency: system-config-network-tui = 1.5.95-1.fc10 for package: system-config-network
Processing Dependency: system-config-firewall-tui = 1.2.13-2.fc10 for package: system-config-firewall

Expected results:
wireless tools should be uninstalled without taking away seemingly unrelated system configuration tools.

Harald -- can we move the network bits out of rhpl and into system-config-network?  The only thing that uses them is system-config-network and it would be another step towards being able to remove rhpl completely.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
