Description Vitaly Mayatskikh 2009-04-21 09:28:51 EDT
XScreensaver requires too many dependencies:

# rpm -qR xscreensaver
xscreensaver-base = 1:5.08-9.fc11
xscreensaver-extras = 1:5.08-9.fc11
xscreensaver-gl-extras = 1:5.08-9.fc11
rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1

xscreensaver-gl-extras also requires xscreensaver-gl-base

IMO, xscreensaver should depend only on xscreensaver-base.
Comment 1 Mamoru TASAKA 2009-04-21 10:42:36 EDT
xscreensaver binary rpm is actually a virtual package to install
3 packages mentioned here (i.e. xscreensaver-{base,extras,gl-extras})
by just "yum install xscreensaver".

If you want to use minimal function of xscreensaver, just
install "xscreensaver-base". Note that xscreensaver binary rpm
is introduced by me and I think only Fedora creates xscreensaver
(virtual) package.
