Description Kevin Kofler 2009-02-24 12:54:29 EST
Description of problem:
Several packages have a hardcoded dependency on PolicyKit-gnome. Is this really necessary? In the KDE spin, we would like to ship PolicyKit-kde instead of PolicyKit-gnome. This tracker bug will be used to track these dependencies.
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2009-02-25 12:07:40 EST
To answer the question: no, it should not be necessary.
We would accept patches to add some silly

Provides: PolicyKit-authentication-agent

and then change all the packages to require that.

FWIW, this problem will disappear in early F12 with PolicyKit 1.0, when the responsibility for launching a suitable authentication agent will move to the session.
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2009-02-27 02:09:48 EST
I've added

Provides: PolicyKit-authentication-agent

to PolicyKit-gnome now. I'll fix up the various requires tomorrow.
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2009-02-27 12:15:01 EST
Also added to PolicyKit-kde-4.2.0-3.fc11.

Looks like this is now sorted out everywhere, thanks.
