virt-manager has hardcoded Requires: PolicyKit-gnome
Last modified: 2009-03-04 18:36:39 EST
Description of problem:
virt-manager has 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. PolicyKit-kde also implements the org.freedesktop.PolicyKit.AuthenticationAgent service.
(Note that virt-manager is not included on the current KDE spin.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. repoquery --repoid=rawhide --whatrequires PolicyKit-gnome
virt-manager requires PolicyKit-gnome.
virt-manager does not require PolicyKit-gnome.
Maybe a common Provides in both PolicyKit-gnome and PolicyKit-kde is needed?
Looks to me like we can just require PolicyKit >= 0.7:
i.e. since PolicyKit 0.7 we use org.freedesktop.PolicyKit.AuthenticationAgent which can be implemented by either PolicyKit-gnome or PolicyKit-kde, rather than directly using org.gnome.PolicyKit
Yeah, there's no reason for us to depend on PolicyKit-gnome directly anymore in Fedora.
In Rawhide, both PolicyKit-gnome and PolicyKit-kde now have:
so you can require this instead of PolicyKit-gnome.
Okay, this is in virt-manager-0.6.1-4.fc11. Closing
