Description Kevin Kofler 2009-02-24 13:13:38 EST
Description of problem:
gnome-system-monitor 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 gnome-system-monitor is not included on the current KDE spin.)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. repoquery --repoid=rawhide --whatrequires PolicyKit-gnome
Actual results:
gnome-system-monitor requires PolicyKit-gnome.

Expected results:
gnome-system-monitor does not require PolicyKit-gnome.

Additional info:
Maybe a common Provides in both PolicyKit-gnome and PolicyKit-kde is needed?
Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2009-02-27 12:24:07 EST
In Rawhide, both PolicyKit-gnome and PolicyKit-kde now have:
Provides: PolicyKit-authentication-agent
so you can require this instead of PolicyKit-gnome.
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2009-02-27 13:44:47 EST
Turns out gnome-system-monitor actually uses the PolicyKit-gnome GtkAction bits, so this is going to have to remain.
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2009-02-27 13:51:27 EST
No problem there, we don't want to ship this one on the KDE spin anyway, KDE has its own system monitor (ksysguard).
