Tracker bug for hardcoded Requires: PolicyKit-gnome
Last modified: 2009-03-04 18:46:06 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.
To answer the question: no, it should not be necessary.
We would accept patches to add some silly
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.
to PolicyKit-gnome now. I'll fix up the various requires tomorrow.
Also added to PolicyKit-kde-4.2.0-3.fc11.
Looks like this is now sorted out everywhere, thanks.
